I can’t believe the colours available despite it being winter here! Raw Thai food obsession lately…using up so much coriander from the garden :)
lemon or lime
dulse or other seaweed product
The recipe (Please excuse this folks, and alter it to your liking, I just kind of get excited and use all I can find that is somewhat relevent to what I’m making)
Firstly, open a young coconut, drain the water (keep aside) and scoop out the meat as much as u can whole, then cut it into strips kinda like pad thai noodles.
Then make a sauce by blending/pureeing/squishing together: a date, a chopped tomato,a clove of garlic and grated ginger etc, juice of a lemon (or half depending on size, or lime if you have it) teaspoon dulse or any other seaweed product (for salty and fishy taste)and about half a cup of the coconut water (and optional braggs if u feel the urge for soy and dont mind).
Then chop up any or all or variations of:
corn off the cob
Toss together with coconut meat, pour juice over the top and toss more, leave to marinade if you can wait, and serve in a pile of any mushrooms with sprouts and extra coriander on top!
Tastes extra amazing the next day as well :)
