Raw Pad Thai

This one is an Endometriosis dream dinner - even DH really liked it!  Not only is it vegan and raw, but also super low gylcemic index (good for candida reduction, since candida is also linked to endo).

  • A couple of zucchinis - use a mandolin or veg peele'r to make 'noodles'
  • Carrots - same as above
  • 1 chopped green onion
  • Shredded purple cabbage (which we forgot to buy at the store, but would have increased the healthfulness since cabbage is good for lowering estrogen)
  • Cauliflower florets (about half a head) - good for lowering estrogen
  • Sprouts (mung bean or radish) (optional)
  • Tahini
  • Almond or peanut butter
  • lemon or lime juice
  • tamari (wheat free)
  • raw honey
  • garlic grated
  • grated ginger
Wisk sauce ingredients in a bowl.  I kept tasting to adjust until I was happy.  Don't worry, the sauce will be a bit thick.  Pour sauce over noodles and gently toss. (Sauce will thin)

YUM! (Shown above with hot sauce drizzled around the outside)

I am going to experiment with adding a little homemade ketchup instead of honey, since somehow 'pad thai' should be red in my mind.  And my ketchup is kickas$.


  1. Looks amazing! I'm totally going to try this!

  2. Your picture is so pretty. You could be a food blog.

    1. Thanks feather! DH took the pic ;)
      And ENDO food blog! W00t!

  3. That looks and sounds good! Good for you for doing so well with the diet. I don't have much willpower, unfortunately.

    1. For me it isn't about willpower - there isn't really another option at this time. Got to keep the endo away!
