Asian Raw Noodles

{by Teniel Moore-Raw Foods Contributor}
I adore asian flavors, so I was so happy to come up my raw version of asian style noodle salad. This is a delicious and refreshing salad using kelp noodles as the base.
Salad Ingredients:
1 pack kelp noodles (see below)
1 zucchini spiralled
1 carrot spiralled (optional)
1/2 corn cob raw
1/4 red capsicum sliced finely
lots of fresh coriander/ cilantro stem and all chopped finely
red chilli for garnish
1 large spring onion sliced on an angle
crushed cashews for garnish
black sesame seeds for garnish
Sauce Ingredients:
1.5 tbsp of almond butter
 1 tbsp of miso soaked in a little water to make runny
1/2 large lime – this was a very juicy lime so you might need more
Stevia to taste  or coconut nectar to taste
1 small garlic clove minced
1 tsp of grated ginger minced
1 tbsp of water to make the sauce go further


Mix all these sauce ingredients together really well and pour all through noodles. Mixing well
with tongs to combine. Serve piled high on a nice serving plate.
Garnish with crushed cashews, black sesame seeds, cilantro and chilli slices & a wedge of lime.
Makes 2 generous servings


One of my favorite tools in my raw food kitchen is my spirooli.
The brand I use is Chef Avenue. This makes great noodles out of vegetables.
I used my spirooli to make the zucchini and carrot noodles for this recipe.
It makes eating veggies so much fun.
Kelp Noodles:
Kelp noodles are a wonderful ingredient. They really have no flavor so can be very versatile in raw food uncooking.
They are actually a sea vegetable in the form of a noodle. Made from only kelp, salt and water.
Kelp noodles do not need to be cooked.
My Tip:
Soak your kelp noodles in filtered water with the juice of a lemon for at least a couple of hours.
This is recommended as it helps make the noodles softer. Give it a go it really works.
Then drain well and they are ready to go.

Spiralize Your Vegetables

We have had so much fun with our Vegetable Spiralizer!  We have had it now for almost a year and I can’t tell you how it has transformed the way we eat raw veggies around here.

So often kids won’t eat vegetables because of the shape and texture, so what better way to get them munching than by changing the shape and even the texture of the vegetable?


I recently made a fun, spiralized vegetable lunch for my girls.  I spiralized carrots, sweet potatoes, and cucumber.  I cut up some strawberries and made a quick egg salad for egg salad sandwiches.

I even reheated some beans from our dinner the night before.  We try to eat the rainbow as much as possible, to get in as many phytonutrients and antioxidants as possible, and this colorful lunch had us doing just that.

My Avery loved that I made a fun face for her lunch, it brought on the smiles.

Eating vegetables in their raw state is much more healthful than cooked– in most cases.  I have found that certain vegetables are more appealing for my kids palate if they are in fun shapes and set out in bowls, ready to eat.


Leftover spiralized veggies are great on salads or in wraps.


You can turn raw zucchini into pasta.  Top with tomato sauce.


The back of the box shows you the many ways you can use the spiralizer.  It is really easy to use and super easy to clean.

My sweet friend Erin from Home With The Boys recently put a picture up on her Instagram that caught my eye.  She has the same spiralizer and turned her sweet potato into spirals.
She then tossed them in a little olive oil, sprinkled a bit of salt, and baked at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until brown and crispy.
They looked delicious! The above is the ‘before’ picture. We have spiralized our sweet potatoes and eaten them raw, but have yet to try them baked.
I plan on doing it this weekend! Erin has lots of awesome ideas, so take a look at her great blog. She is an inspiration to me & I love knowing her…you will too!


What do you think?  Does this appeal to you?  Do you think your kids would get into making their veggies spin and spiral?  If you are interested in getting your own, use this link and I will get a small percentage for passing it on to you.
