Raw Pad Thai

Growing up in Australia, Asian food was readily available and totally delicious. I love all Asian food, but especially Vietnamese and Thai. These cuisines are vibrant both visually and in taste. Fresh lime juice, cilantro, peppers and lemon grass all  work to give amazing fresh tastes.

Pad Thai is one of my favourites, and I am trying to keep my diet as clean as possible at the moment so this is perfect.

The sauce is very rich, so add a little to the veggies and taste. If you want more, add it in. If there is any left over, it can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or so. I am not sure if it will keep longer than a week, as I can never get it to last that long.

Serves 4 – 6


  • 1/4 cup tamarind paste
  • 1/4 cup tamari sauce
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews roughly chopped plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tblspn hot pepper flakes
  • 4 tblspns water
  • 3 cloves garlic roughly chopped


  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 small daikon radish thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small red cabbage shredded
  • 2 red peppers cut into thin strips
  • 1 yellow or orange paper cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup green onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro roughly chopped
  • fresh lime juice


Place all sauce ingredients in blender and process until thickened and mostly smooth. Place in fridge to chill while preparing

using a spiralizer or mandolin, cut the zucchini into thin strips (noodles) and place in a large bowl. Add in the daikon radish, red cabbage, red and yellow peppers, green onions and cilantro. Mix together well.

Add the sauce and mix to coat the veggies well. If you do not use all the sauce, it can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for a week.

Place a mound of vegetables on a plate, sprinkle with extra raw cashews and drizzle with fresh lime juice.
