Creamy Cilantro Kelp Noodles (Raw)

This Creamy Cilantro Kelp Noodles is perfect for lunch. Its earthy flavor is like sunshine in a bowl bursting with flavor and nutrients! Kelp Noodles are a sea vegetable raw noodle form. No, there is no salty or sea-like flavor in them at all. Kelp Noodles are fat-free, gluten-free, and very low in carbs and calories! The texture is crunchy when they are raw. When heated or soaked they will not be crunchy or as crunchy.

I’ve discovered that cashews are the best way to get a creamy sauce going in vegan meals. I’ve tried cashews for mac and cheese recipes and salad dressing recipes. The Raw Cilantro Cream Sauce below can be made into a salad dressing & heated for a pasta, if you like!

Makes 2 servings!
