Raw Pad Thai (V/GF/R): A Spicy Hot Recipe for a Cold Rainy Day

Raw Pad Thai

A Spicy Hot Recipe for a Cold Rainy Day

Are you looking for a spicy dish to warm up your family on a rainy day? I recently demonstrated this recipe at Harvest Health Foods in Hudsonville for almost 90 people. As the samples were being passed out, attendees were asking for seconds! I thought that was a pretty good sign. They REALLY liked it and I am sure you will too.

As Mother Nature continues to shower us with this much needed rain, my Raw Pad Thai will warm your soul. However, it’s DE-LISH in the sunshine as well.
