My Name Is Spice

Raw Pad Thai

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, July 30, 2016


I can't be sure I've ever eaten Pad Thai before; but I certainly haven't had a raw version till I made this one. The Satay sauce is reminiscent of a satay sauce I used to make in a restaurant long ago; and i have recreated the recipe to some degree. 



Coconut cream (or coconut water if the cream is too rich), a splash of soy sauce, coconut sugar to taste, shallot, fresh lemongrass - bruised, fresh ginger, garlic, ground turmeric, fresh red chilli, lime juice, galangal, and a yummy organic peanut butter. Blitz together in high speed blend (or food processor if you want to keep it lumpy)! It's quite nice to have crunchy bits in the satay sauce!!


The Pad Thai Recipe

I have grated courgette and carrot on a mandolin (no; not the musical instrument); sliced some red pepper, red cabbage, spinach and red onion "julienne-style",  then added fresh mint, roasted peanuts and fresh coriander.

One of my all-time favourite dishes; soooo delicious!


For the love of vegetables..

Even in Winter it is rewarding to celebrate Nature's bounty in the form of fruits and vegetables.

I have used the under-rated cauliflower and tossed it in spices; then served it up with an array of lettuces, rocket, and fresh pear, herbs and basil flowers.

This Chermoula spice blend is made up of the warm earthy end of the spice spectrum; which lends itself to root vegetables and Winter cooking generally


NB, the warming spices in this instance be turmeric, cumin and paprika (three of fifteen spices I use in this Moroccan blend).

Spices each have different personalities, and different roles to play in any given situation. (I like to think of them as people)!!
