For those who enjoy raw foods or not this kelp noodles recipe is a must try! This dish satisfies the taste-buds with a spicy aromatic flavor topped with a creamy citrus cardamom sauce. What is more, it’s low-calorie and gluten-free! For those with gluten allergies or sensitivities kelp noodles make a great alternative to pasta. Kelp noodles are a raw food and have a neutral flavor. They can be eaten warm or cold and have a mild crunch to them. Obviously, if you are looking to keep the meal raw you don’t want to heat them up. I prefer them a little warm, so what I like to do is soak them in a bowl of warm water for several minutes. Then just when I’m about to eat then pour the sauce over them. Not all kelp is raw so make sure that on the package it is labelled raw. Kelp noodles work great as pasta with any sauce or topping and in salads, it’s so versatile I love it!
This Citrus Avocado Cardamom Sauce is also fabulous as a salad dressing or on veggie wraps you can use it for so many different dishes. If you wanted to pack a salad for lunch you can have the salad with lots of vegetables in one container ready to go and have a separate little dressing container . It is so simple and easy, there is really no excuses not to be packing healthy lunches! 🙂
Most dishes on the raw food diet are so versatile, you can literally change them up each time just by adding different vegetables and fresh herbs. So, make this your own adding the flavors and veggies you prefer.
The idea is to fill it with a ton of veggies so it makes a filling, hearty dish. So in the recipe I don’t specify how many of the veggies to use, it is according to your liking and your appetite. This dish packs well too, so it can be a great lunch to bring to work.
