Raw Thai Pasta with Cilantro Pesto (GF)

Ready for a simple and delicious dinner?!

This recipe is so easy to make, exploding with flavor, and is great for your body!
Raw foods are the easiest to digest, and provide our body with a sort of “detox” as needed by the other components in some of our diets.
This dish is light, yet filling, and can be made in advance as it gets better the longer it sits in the fridge!
