Notes
To keep this recipe raw you could add the garlic and ginger to the sauce in the blender if you are ok with raw garlic. I personally like the cabbage cooked for easier digestion. I have used Nikki's Honey Pecan Pie coconut butter as well as the plain coconut butter and it tastes amazing. If using the Honey Pecan Pie you can omit the dates otherwise it will be too sweet. If you want to keep the sugar low use few dashes of stevia. Also, in the asian isle of the health market you can find roasted sesame seeds called Gomasio {roasted sesame seeds, sea salt and seaweed}. This is one of our favorite condiments to add on vegetables and fish or chicken. Add ¼ cup of sauce if you like the texture closer to traditional Pad Thai. The sauce is so delicious if you have any left over use it on a salad or it will keep up to a week in the refrigerator. To make this a complete meal I cooked some chicken tenderloins in the frying pan with sesame seeds {Gomasio}. Please use organic when you can.
