Carrot Noodles with (Almond) Peanut Sauce

Peanut sauce with noodles is one of my favorite dishes. Once I make it, I can’t stop eating it … which isn’t necessarily a good thing. And unfortunately, the traditional way to make this dish is with canned coconut milk, peanut butter and rice noodles. I wanted a fresher, more nutritious version. Time to rawify it!

 

 

To make this recipe healthy, I replaced the peanut butter with a healthy raw almond butter, the high glycemic, low nutrient rice noodles with with carrot noodles and the high fat canned coconut with fresh young thai coconut.

I am thrilled¬†with the results. Elated, in fact. Finally, one of my favorite dishes made with healthy raw ingredients! I hope you enjoy this raw recipe as much as I do. I am lucky there are pictures…I couldn’t resist eating during the shoot!

    This sauce was really good over kelp noodles with vegetables. I was too lazy to spiralize that many carrots.

    Raw carrot noodles have been on my list for a while, but I haven’t quite gotten around to making them yet. Zucchini noodles, on the other hand, are a pretty frequent guest in my kitchen. After reading this post, it like carrots will have to be, too!

    This looks absolutely fantastic – thanks for the recipe!

    Great recipe. I will try today. Coconut flesh and Thai coconuts can be found at Shoppers in MD &’DC or at Grand Mart for only $1.99-$2.49 each….

    This might just be one of the best ways to introduce people to raw food…an amazing Thai noodle dish! When we go visit the inlaws thanksgiving I might just have the whip this out! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Be careful about almonds, too. Those from California at least are not raw and are pasteurized. I believe it is state law. My local food co-op sells almonds from Spain and the bin is almost always empty so I rarely get them. Not sure if they are pasteurized though. You could try Wilderness Family Naturals for raw nuts.

      It isn’t just California. It is the US. You need to find truly raw, unpasteurized almonds. Many coops have them and you can find them on-line. The peanuts for peanut butter have been roasted.
