Oodles of Spicy Noodles
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Raw Vegan
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 servings
  • pea tenders
  • 2 or 3 carrots
  • ½ cauliflower
  • 3 celery
  • handful of arame, soaked
  • 1 package wakame noodles or kelp noodles (I used a brand called Oodles)
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne,  or more to taste (you may want to start with ⅛ teaspoon, taste it and add more if you wish)
  • ½ lemon, freshly squeezed
  • pinch of sea salt
  • water, as needed
  • minced celery leaves or parsley
  1. On a dinner plate, place the pea tenders as a base.
  2. Using your 'potato' peeler, make thin strips of carrots, enough to make another layer.
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut the celery thinly on the diagonal and make yet another layer.
  4. Cut the cauliflower in bite size pieces and place around the edge of the plate.
  5. Mix tahini, cayenne, lemon juice, sea salt and enough water to make a paste that is not too thick and not too runny.  If you make it too runny, add a little tahini at a time, until you get the right consistency.  Taste and adjust the salt or cayenne...that really means that you can only add more, not take away!  If it is too salty or too spicy, add more tahini, lemon and water.  You will have too much sauce but that's ok because you can use it the next day for a different dish!
  6. In a separate bowl, mix the sauce, the softened arame and the noodles together.  Place on the plate and garnish with minced celery leaves or parsley.
  7. Devour!
