Raw Carrot Pad Thai Recipe

March 7th, 2016

Instead of ordering in—again—try our light, healthy take on classic pad thai. Shaved strips of carrot mimic the color of traditional rice noodles, while creamy almond butter sauce incorporates the traditional Southeast Asian flavors of chili, ginger, and garlic.

Raw Carrot Pad Thai

Yield: 2 to 4 servings
Total Time: 10 minutes


For the pad thai:
1 large or 2 medium carrots
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup mung bean sprouts
1/4 cup sugar snap or snow peas
2 green onions, sliced
Small handful cilantro, roughly chopped
1/4 cup cashews, crushed
Lime slices, to garnish

For the sauce:
2 tablespoons raw almond butter
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon chili flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon raw honey
3 to 5 tablespoons water


Make the pad thai
Run vegetable peeler down the length of carrots, shaving off long ribbons. Place carrot ribbons in large bowl and toss with red onion, sprouts, peas, and green onions. Set aside.

Make the sauce
In a small bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients, adding more water if necessary to achieve the desired consistency. Pour sauce over carrot noodle mixture and toss to coat.

Divide noodles between plates and top with cilantro, crushed cashews, and lime slices.
