Raw Kelp Noodle with Peanut Butter Dressing

Kelp noodles have been a staple in people’s diets for over 1500 years.  These fat free, gluten free noodles have a great texture.  Kelp noodles are mostly prepared in Asian cuisine, or as a low-carb substitute for rice and pasta in various dishes. Even if they weren’t healthy I would consume my fair share, but they are very rich in nutrients and I have hence been buying a ton of them.  They mix extremely well with thinly sliced veggies like the carrots in this recipe.  If you’ve never had kelp noodles before, get ready for what is quite possibly a new love in your life!

Thai food brings an amazing blend of noodles and veggies, and I am always enamored with the taste when there’s a delicious Sauce Dressing to go with it.  The drawback for me is that many peanut sauces have a ton of sugar.  I cut back on sugar for health reasons and have adjusted my palate, and if something now has too much sugar I actually dislike the taste.  This recipe has a peanut sauce that is mild in its sweetness but still has a lot of flavor.  It compliments the rest of the dish rather than overpowering it.

I purchased the Organic Seven Nut and Seed Butter from Nuttzo at Costco or you can find this item at Amazon.com

    I’ve never tried kelp in any form before. That looks so good, though, I’m going to see if I can’t find kelp noodles at a specialty store.

    Asian cooking may seem weird to some, but they use whatever is available and create flavorful dishes with them. These kelp noodles are very good and is a healthy alternative to rice.

    I have had a lot of Asian noodle dishes in my life, but I am not sure if I have ever had kelp noodles. I am going to have to try them. I have had kelp and know they have a very high nutritional value.

    I am not familiar with raw kelp noodle at all, and this is probably my first time hearing of this. Good to see that this recipe is pretty healthy. I like the Nutiva line of products too.
