Raw Vegan Pad Thai
If you are anything like me, you will know how intense the Thai food cravings can be. Freshly vegan, going out for Thai food was one of those reliable options you could have that would give you a flavorful vegan dinner that made you feel like less of an outsider to the world. (unlike going to a regular non-vegan friendly sit down restaurant just to order steamed broccoli with plain salad and no dressing) I was always a fan of the popular veggie 'Pad Thai' dish minus the egg or fish sauce. Going raw vegan, I was again presented with the challenge of making a recipe that would hold its own to the very deliciously cooked version in restaurants. Well wow, oh wow have I out done myself again! This is a MUST try.
