PAD THAI


    Pad Thai is one of my absolute favourite comfort foods and this raw vegan recipe certainly does the trick! Before I went vegan I easily ate pad thai at least once a week. I always ordered the vegetarian with extra tofu. This meal was delicious but always left me feeling tired and bloated. I eat the same portion, if not more, of the raw recipe and feel energized and satisfied post meal. 
     The following Pad Thai recipe has been inspired by Mimi Kirk's recipe in "Live Raw" which is a wonderful book with many awesome recipes! This recipe serves 2-4 people, depending on how little or how much you want to eat :)
