Living Pad Thai: Raw and Gluten-Free

There were many star dishes at our last Raw Foods Potluck, and one of them was Diane’s Living Pad Thai. Several of you have asked for the recipe, and Diane has agreed to share it! The magic is in the sauce, so you can choose the veggies that you want in your dish and slather it with Diane’s magical Pad Thai Sauce.

Diane has joined forces with two other talented raw foods chefs, Betsy and David, to create Reboot Health and Wellness. Their purpose is helping people reboot their health whether they are struggling with illness, weight loss, or need help transitioning to a plant-based diet. They will serve as consultants creating meal plans, guiding clients through cleanses, and delivering delicious raw meals and juices. They are planning their grand opening next month, but you can get a sneak peak through their facebook page. Just try not to drool over those raw foods pictures!

Remember these?

    I am so glad you shared this! I really wanted to try everything from the potluck post that you shared. Chaz loves pad thai and I think this will give us both something we can love. 😀

  2. Amber says:

    What a gorgeous recipe, Heather!! Thank you for sharing it with us. I am a new follower of reboot health and wellness!! :-)

  3. This looks so wonderful! I wish I could conjure it up instantly and eat it straight away :)

  4. Johnna says:

    We’re having this for dinner TONIGHT! Thank you for sharing this!

  5. Kathryn says:

    That is gorgeous – I have to think anything covered in that sauce would be delicious. Raw Pad Thai is new to me but I think it would be a hit here. Love the dates in the sauce – I’ll try that in my own peanut sauce instead of honey next time. =D

  6. Heather, this looks so amazing that I am very intrigued! I shared on my gfe Facebook page. :-) I think we should make this dish the next time we are all together!

    Thanks to you and Diana for sharing! xo,

  7. Hey girl! I’m featuring this gorgeous dish on HVF Friday this week! I’m obsessed with the idea of a raw spin on my favourite takeout classic!

  8. Cindy says:

    I am highly allergic to tamarind. Is there a good substitute I could use?

    • Heather says:

      Cindy, it’s hard to find a substitute for tamarind, but Diane suggested a little orange and lime juice with brown sugar…not raw, but better for someone highly allergic! Let me know if you try it and if it works!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
