Pad Thai

I learned this recipe from the chef David Bailey in London. It's amazing! I think my boyfriend is addicted to it. Luckily it's got lots of goodness in the form of dates (potassium, iron, flavonoids) and almond butter (vit E, vit B2, phosphorus ).


  • 2 tbsp of date paste (or chopped dates)
  • 1/2 jar of almond butter
  • 5 sun dried tomatoes, soaked
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • knob of ginger
  • 80 ml maple syrup
  • 80 ml tamari
  • 125 ml olive oil
  • 2 long red chillis (adjust to how spicy you like it)
  • 50ml lemon juice
  • 50ml tamarind juice or tsp spoon of tamarind paste


  • Blend everything together in your food processor adding a little water to thin if necessary.
  • You can add it to selection of raw or cooked vegetables and some noodles. Works well with both.
