Beet Sauce Ingredients
  1. 2 medium red beets, roasted, peeled, and quartered (See my little "How To" video here)
  2. 1 tablespoon freshly minced ginger
  3. 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  4. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (from about 1 lime)*
  6. 1 teaspoon kosher sea salt
  7. Filtered Water
  8. 1 tablespoon lime zest
Toppings
  1. 1 cup julienned cucumber or 1 cup of mung bean sprouts
  2. 1 cup Trader Joe’s Thai Lime & Chili Almonds, chopped into thirds**
  3. 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  4. 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chiffonaded***
  5. 1/2 cup finely julienned spring onions or scallions, dark green parts
  6. 1/2 cup plain toasted coconut flakes
  7. 1 package of Wildwood Royal Thai ready to eat baked sprouted tofu, cubed (optional)****
  8. Lime wedges
Noodles
  1. 1 package Mai Fun (thin rice noodles)
Instructions
  1. Place all sauce ingredients except the zest into your high speed blender, adding just enough water to cover the ingredients. Blend until very smooth. If not blending, add a little more water. Stir in lime zest and salt to taste
  2. Cook your rice noodles according to package instructions. Transfer to a strainer and rinse with cold water until noodles are cool.
  3. Toss noodles with sauce, garnish with all toppings and serve room temperature or chilled with lime wedges for squeezing over each serving.
Notes
  1. *If you can find Kaffir Limes, use them instead of regular limes- the flavor impact is incredible.
  2. **Any roasted and salted almonds will do, but I love the fruity spice of these almonds
  3. ***If you can find Thai Basil, you can swap 1 cup of chiffonaded leaves for the mint and cilantro
  4. ****The tofu is completely optional, but adds a protein punch to this dish for a complete meal.
