Vegan Gluten-Free Thai Som Tum Recipe

Vegan Gluten-Free Thai Som Tum Recipe

This is a popular Thai dish, called Som Tum (spicy papaya salad or papaya kimchi), that my mom used to make for us when we were kids and since we always begged for more, she would end up making an asinine amount. For just a week or two our fridge would be stuffed to the brim with this spicy deliciousness. But only for a week or two at most, this stuff never lasted very long at our house. So here’s what you need to make this tasty and healthy side that will clear your sinuses and make you cry for more. Enjoy this vegan and gluten-free delicious frugal feast!

1 tablespoon sugar
1 lime
1 lemon
2 cups green papaya, shredded
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon vegan fish sauce alternative
3 thai chili peppers
3 tomatoes cut unto medium sized chunks
Handful of cilantro, chopped

Place the garlic cloves and the chilies in a high quality food processor and process until crushed into chunks. Set aside. Peel papayas until the whites show and then shred into long pieces using a mandolin. Squeeze juice of lemon and lime over papaya. Mix with sugar, vegan fish sauce, garlic, chili peppers, cilantro and tomatoes.
And that’s it! It’s such an easy dish and one that’s so nutritious for you too. It’s best when served cold and is so refreshing with the sweetness of the papaya, the saltiness from the citrus, and the sourness from the fish sauce. And you know that I’m loving all over that spicy kick from the thai peppers.
Make this dish, and then eat it as a side for whatever your eating, or top it on a fish or another protein as a garnish, or maybe even stuff your face with this stuff for breakfast. OK I am just kidding about the breakfast part. Enjoy the gluten-free vegan frugal feast!
