Add a little heat to your dinner table tonight with gluten-less kelp noodles soaked in a delicious spicy coconut milk peanut butter sauce. For a fully raw version use jungle peanut butter or make your own in a food processor or Vitamix using un-roasted valencia peanuts. You may also choose to sub in another raw nut butter of your choice such as almond or sprouted sunflower. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

Base
  • 1 packet Sea Tangle Kelp Noodles (12 ounce packet)
Add Ons
  • 1 cup organic spinach (diced)
  • 1 cup organic red bell peppers (cut into small strips)
The Sauce
  • 1 can organic full-fat coconut milk (feel free to use homemade for a fully raw version)
  • 1/2 cup organic peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons organic raw coconut crystals (or your favorite sweetener)
  • 2 tablespoons organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon organic cilantro
  • 2 cloves organic garlic (freshly crushed)
  • 1 organic jalapeno
  • 1 teaspoon organic red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

Instructions

  1. Prepare the kelp noodles: remove the from the package and rinse them with purified/filtered water. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the veggies: chop the spinach into thin strips and cut the red bell peppers into thin strips. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the sauce: add all ingredient for the sauce to a Vitamix, or other blender, and blend until it's creamy and smooth. Adjust seasonings to your preference, especially the jalapeno and/or red pepper flakes. Also, you can add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of purified/filtered water if you want a thinner sauce.
  4. Add the kelp noodles and veggies to a medium sized bowl, then pour the sauce over the top and gently stir until it is evenly distributed.
  5. Optional: garnish with extra chopped spinach and/or red bell pepper strips.

Notes

Tip #1:  I used 1 jalapeno and added 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, so it is definitely pretty spicy.  If you don’t want it very spicy, or not spicy at all,  just reduce and/or omit the jalapeno and/or red pepper flakes.
