Contributed by juleskess on, this was my very first raw meal dish. I have been eating Raw but I was not really putting anything into "preparing" something. This is very good and makes eating raw more interesting. The colors are lovely and the meal is healthy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix the nut butter with the garlic and ginger, lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, and hot sauce until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Mix all of the vegetables in a large bowl (save a few green onion tops for garnish).
  3. Right before serving, mix sauce with veggies and enjoy.
  4. Chopsticks add a nice touch!

This was ok. As one reviewer below said, there really was too much dressing. We added about 1/2 cup more cabbage. We also only used the juice of one lemon, and it was still very lemony.

I took this to a huge raw food potluck and it was in the Top 3 of the dozen or so dishes I sampled, taste-wise. I noted that some reviews mentioned that the dish only needed one lemon, so that's what I used and it was fine. I would have garnished the dish with ground almonds, had I not run out of time. I should also point out that if you need a 100% raw dish, you'll need to use the hot pepper instead of the hot sauce. Thanks for posting this recipe!

AWESOME!!! i recommend lightly grinding some more almonds and sprinkling it on top. It adds some great texture and is more reminiscent of "real" pad thai. i also didn't use cabbage since i didn't have any, but added a good amount of "broccoli slaw" (bought at Whole Foods). SO GOOD. will make again and again!!!
