Gluten Free Raw Foods Recipes: Dr. Ritamarie’s Latest Kelp Noodle Creation

by | 6 comments


The other day I posted about how excited I was about  Kelp Noodles . Not only are they highly nutritious, because they are  made from kelp, a power packed green that grows in the sea,  but they are delicious as well.

If you've ever been  on a gluten free diet, or a raw and living foods diet, you know that the noodle choices are a bit limited.  You can spiralize zucchini and make a yummy angel hair pasta, but you can't beat these kelp noodles, not only for flavor and texture, but for convenience as well.

I've been having a blast creating new recipes using the kelp noodles.  I made one this past weekend that just might be the most nutritionally dense dish I've made to date.  I'll attempt to recreate the exact quantities of ingredients I used, but quite frankly, I don't think it much matters i you get it exact.  I bet there's more calcium in this recipe than in a quart of milk.  The photo is above.

Kelp noodles are available by the case of 12 ounce bags from Seatangle , 16 ounce bags form the Fresh ‘n Fun Co-op in Austin, Texas or individual 12 ounce bags  from Raw Food World.

Here's a fabulous, quick, easy recipe for sesame noodles,kelp style.

Wilted Greens with Kelp Noodles

  • 1 bag kelp noodles
  • 1 10 ounce jar of raw garlic sauerkraut
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 handful dandelion greens
  • 1 inch slice ginger
  • 2 tablespoons raw sesame tahini
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup water (depends on desired consistency)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 tomato

Put kelp noodles in a bowl and rinse well.  Cover with water until sauce is ready.  In blender,  combine tahini, ginger and water.  Adjust water to achieve a thick smooth consistency.

Put greens in a food processor and pulse chop until minced.  Put salt over greens and massage until wilted.  Finely dice tomato and red bell pepper.  Drain kelp noodles and combine wiht sauerkraut, chopped  vegetables and sauce. Stir until well combined or massage gently with your hands to help the noodles soften.  Add salt to taste.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds or pine nuts  (optional).  Eat immediately or save for later.  The noodles soften more the longer they sit in the sauce.

Kelp noodles are available by the case of 12 ounce bags from Seatangle , 16 ounce bags form the Fresh ‘n Fun Co-op in Austin, Texas or individual 12 ounce bags  from Raw Food World.

    I’m allergic to tomato and any bell pepper. Can you recommend the best substitute?

    Thanks Ritamarie

    I’ve usually prepared the kelp noodles with raw sprouted hummus + some lemon juice and Italian parsley and spinach greens + germinated nuts.
    I’ll definitely try your recipe.
    Sounds delicious!

    I can’t eat sesame, what would you suggest to substitute? I’d like to try the kelp noodles!

      Tahini is sesame seed butter, so you could reasonably substitute any nut butter. It won’t taste the same as the tahini, but it will still be enjoyable! If you try something different, let us know so we can suggest that, too.
