Do you ever find yourself craving pasta, or something more dubstantional but never feel like there is a healthy option? 

That’s not the case with this nutritious Vitamix  The Power of Living Raw 10 wk MBT Pad Thai Spaghetti with Coconut and Lime Dreassing. 

This quick and easy dish is nutrient dense and packed with  flavor. Low in calories, energy giving and healing for your body and soul.  This recipe will wow your guests, friends and family ~ you’ll love this guilt-free dish.

Here is my version or a Raw pad Thai. The zucchini replaces the noodles and the coconut lime dressing 
giving it a lovely zest and Thai taste. Bell peppers are high in Vitamin C; they contain fibre, protein and 
iron. I love the colours created in this dish.

Serves 4 
2 zucchini (courgettes), spiralised
1 carrot, spiralised
2 cups (1 lb/450 g)  beansprouts
1 yellow capsicum (bell pepper), sliced 
4 spring onions (scallions), diced
3⁄4 cup (3 oz/85 g) cashews, chopped
1⁄2 cup fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon olive oil
1⁄4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt or Celtic sea salt
 cup mint leaves, to garnish
For the Coconut and Lime Dressing
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon fresh turmeric, grated (shredded)
1⁄2 tablespoon fresh root ginger, grated (shredded)
Juice of 4 limes
1 teaspoon manuka honey or alternative sweetener such as stevia or palm sugar
2 tablespoons coconut kefir or coconut milk 
To make the dressing, blend all the ingredients until smooth in the bowl of a food processor or 
To make the pad Thai, tip all the ingredients into a large bowl, season to taste, then add the 
beansprouts, peppers, spring onion and cashew nuts. 
Stir the dressing through the vegetables. Garnish with fresh mint leaves.
