Raw Pad Thai

When I first began my raw vegan journey in 2007 I didn’t have enough variety in my raw meals and I wasn’t eating enough. Now I am taking my time and incorporating new dishes that are inspired by my favorite cooked dishes. Thai is one of my favorite cuisines. This wonderful recipe is a raw version of pad-thai. I mixed a couple different recipes I found online, based on what I had in my kitchen. It was delicious. Not as oily as the cooked version but very satisfying.
