Prep Time
20 min
  1. 8 oz rice noodles
  2. 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  3. 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into ribbons
  4. 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  5. 4 sprigs fresh cilantro, leaves only
  6. 1/4 cup peanut butter
  7. 2 tbsp tamari
  8. 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  9. 1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  10. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  11. 1 lime
  12. 2 tbsp hemp hearts
Prepare the ingredients
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Thinly slice the yellow bell pepper. Peel the carrots and run the vegetable peeler down the length of the carrots to shave off long ribbons. Thinly slice the green onions. Pick the cilantro leaves. Quarter the lime.
Cook the rice noodles
  1. When the water comes to a boil, add the rice noodles. Cook for 6 min or until tender but firm to the bite.
  2. Strain and rinse the noodles with warm water.
Toss the pad thai
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the peanut butter, tamari, ginger, juice from half the lime, 2 tbsp warm water, 1 tbsp olive oil and the cayenne pepper (add less cayenne pepper for a milder dish).
  2. In a large bowl, add the cooked rice noodles, yellow bell pepper, carrots and green onions. Toss to combine.
  3. Add the pad thai dressing and toss well to coat.
Plate and serve
  1. Plate the Peanut Pad Thai. Top with hemp hearts, cilantro and remaining lime wedges. Enjoy!
  1. To make this a raw dish, use kelp noodles instead of rice noodles.
