Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This looks fantastic! How about a raw version of "Basil, Tomato, Tofu", Vietnamese Street Noodles Hue Style, or Pho?

Hi DivineMissEm (nice name) - yes, you can leave the kelp noodles out - I would substitute it with thinly julienne green papaya or even spiral zucchini - why not right? The kelp noodles just gives it that noodooly taste I really like. Regular basil is okay, too not a problem! As long as you mix the basil with mint, you are good to go. Thanks for asking those questions.

This looks incredible! This is my favorite kind of meal to have. Two questions about substitutions. Would leaving the kelp out change much. 1. I don´t care for it when I prepare it myself and 2. it´s hard to find here. Also, would regular basil be an ok flavor change?
