Recipe: Pad Thai with Kelp Noodles

This my new favorite recipe!

Kelp noodles are a creation from mother earth, modified just a little bit to make them a perfectly delectable dish!  They are just raw kelp leaves, stripped of the outer shell.  The inner kelp has a clear noodle-like consistency and a taste so neutral that it’ll work as a pasta substitute in any dish you can think of.  I tried it in a pad thai recipe and couldn’t have been more impressed!

Chop 1 red pepper
Thaw and peel 1 cup edamame
Slice 1 cup mushrooms

Sautee all the veggies in 2 Tbsp water or veggie broth for about 5 minutes

In a saucepan, heat the following:
3Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp peanut butter
3Tbsp lime
3 Tbsp maple syrup

Once the peanut butter melts, stir to a smooth consistency and remove from heat.

Rinse the kelp noodles and add to the veggies.  Add the sauce and toss all ingredients to coat evenly.   Simmer 1-2 minutes over low heat to heat the noodles.

Serve and enjoy!
