Recipe #8 :: Kelp Noodle Curry

The past month has been filled with excitement from racing a NASCAR in Las Vegas to Snowboarding in Park City.  I live a life filled with adventure and new experiences, which I feel incredibly fortunate to have. This week my back finally screamed no more- carrying a 20lb pack up Mt. Kilimanjaro, playing polo on horseback, snowboarding, and kettle ball work outs. My Valentine’s date was at the gym and as I swing the kettle ball, I swung my back out of line. Because of eating a very anti-inflammation diet and deep tissue massage, I am at almost 100%. No, I am not a super hero, but I try to eat like one. The body is like a fine tuned sports car and requires the finest ingredients. A raw food, organic diet rich with anti-inflammatory foods suck as turmeric, ginger, and dark leafy greens helps aid in recovery. My robotic painful movements have quickly resolved back to my nimble yoga and runner self. Here are a few examples of what our bodies tell us: Pale skin on face or acne- too much refined sugars; red nose and cheeks, puffy around eyes- too much alcohol;  Grey tone in face, brown spots on chin, and achy joints- too much gluten.  Please take a moment to reflect and ask yourself -what you are putting in your fine body?

Kelp noodles are a sea vegetable in the form of an easy to eat raw noodle. Made of only kelp, sodium alginate, and water. Kelp noodles are fat free, gluten free, and low in carbs and calories.  Their noodle form and neutral taste allow for a variety of uses including salads, stir fries, hot broths, casseroles, while their healthful content provides a rich source of trace minerals including iodine, which kelp is known for.  I flavored these kelp noodles with avocado and curry.  The recipe is entirely vegan and raw, both paleo and vegans a like will enjoy this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ package of kelp noodles rinsed and drained (Sea Tangle brand)

Dressing-

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2/3 whole lemon juiced
  • 2 tbsp Harissa olive oil
  • 1 tbsp curry powder

  • ½ cup cauliflower chopped
  • 1 radish sliced thin

Tamari Turmeric Almonds (Navitas brand)

Directions:

Mix in blender avocado, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, curry, and sea salt. Add 1-3 tbsp water to thin to desired consistency.  Rinse and drain kelp noodles. Add dressing to kelp noodles and mix well.  Mix in chard, cauliflower, and radish. Serve immediately and top with your favorite raw flavored nuts. Serves 2
