The pad Thai at Be Raw Food & Juice is a favorite among customers despite a preparation that sharply departs from tradition. Noodles crafted from zucchini, a sweet-spicy sauce of almond butter and chili, and a crowning pile of crisp, fresh veggies make up this all-raw dish, just one of the many 100% organic, vegan, and living food options at University Park's Be Raw.
Another favorite entree that never sees the inside of an oven is the plate of coconut kale enchiladas, which are coconut tortillas stuffed with nacho cheese, pico, salsa verde, marinated kale, and sour cream made from cashews. The enchiladas leave all the nutrients in superfood kale untouched since the ingredients aren't treated with vitamin-sapping heat, and yet they're still tasty, according to regulars.
The same claims could be made for the Green smoothie, just one of six sweet blends packed with nutritious plant-based substances. It consists of kale, along with avocado and spinach, walnuts and coconut water, and either dates or agave for a kick of natural sugar. Be Raw also serves raw pizzas, sandwiches, and desserts that are free of sugar, gluten &/or dairy products.
