Kelp noodles make an ideal substitute for pasta if you're looking to follow a raw, gluten-free or even paleo diet! They soak up the flavors of sauces in the most delicious way and have an enticingly soft, noodle-like texture when left to marinate for just a few minutes. This recipe by Rachael Campbell has a definite Thai theme with flavors of lime, ginger, lemongrass, and garlic and turns up the heat with the addition of spicy cayenne and red chili to garnish. Almond butter is used as a peanut-replacement in the sauce to make this recipe completely raw-friendly and also much less allergenic. Delicious, fresh and healthy!

Additional Tips

Kelp Noodles are a sea vegetable in the form of an easy to eat raw noodle. Made of only kelp (a sea vegetable), sodium alginate (sodium salt extracted from a brown seaweed), and water, Kelp Noodles are fat-free, gluten-free, and very low in carbohydrates and calories. Their noodle form and neutral taste allow for a variety of uses including salads, stir-(not)fries while their healthful content provides a rich source of trace minerals including iodine, which kelp is well known for. Their unique texture completes the package, making Kelp Noodles a one-of-a-kind healthful and tasty alternative to pasta and rice noodles. Best of all, no cooking is required. Just rinse or soak the noodles and add to any dish and they are ready to eat, you can warm/heat them if you prefer.

Enjoy this healthy, refreshing and warming dish!
