Thai Green Papaya Salad Recipe

Thai Green Papaya Salad

Years ago, I took a cooking class in Chiang Mai, Thailand at the vegetarian restaurant Taste of Heaven. I learned to cook five vegan versions of traditional Thai dishes.

This is a modified version of the recipe for Vegan Thai Green Papaya Salad. Super fast, easy, and delicious.

Vegan Thai Green Papaya Salad


  • 4 Red Thai Chili Peppers
  • 4 Peeled Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Small Tomato, cut into quarters
  • 2 Chinese Long Green Beans, cut into 1 inch pieces (or you can use 8 regular green beans)
  • 20 grams Green Papaya, peeled and shredded or julienned
  • 4 grams grams Carrot, peeled and shredded or julienned
  • 2 T Roasted Peanuts
  • 1/4 Lime
  • 1 T Mushroom Powder or Soy Sauce
  • 2 T Tamarind Sauce
  • 1 T Palm Sugar


  • Crush fresh chili and garlic in the mortar until well combined and in tiny pieces.
  • Add beans and peanuts and pound with the pestle until beans are bruised and peanuts are crushed.
  • Add tomato, green papaya and carrot. Lightly pound ingredients three times, mix and repeat five times.
  • Squeeze lime and add to the mixture, add mushroom powder or soy sauce, tamarind sauce and palm sugar and mix.
  • Taste for seasoning and add more if necessary.
  • Enjoy immediately. The salad will not keep for long.
