Thai Green Curry with Vegetable Noodles
This green curry is surprisingly easy to prepare and can be served over spiralized vegetables noodles or cauliflower rice.

- 1 red bell pepper julienned
- 1 carrot cut in thin half moons
- 1 zucchini cut in thin half moons
- 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms sliced
- 2 cups spiralized vegetable noodles (or 1 package cauliflower rice)

Use a spiralizer to make your vegetable noodles (you can use turnip, zucchini, or whatever you prefer) or open a bag of cauliflower rice.
In a large pot, add coconut oil and heat on medium-high until shimmering.
Add garlic, ginger, and curry paste. Cook until fragrant, about 30-60 seconds.
Next add coconut milk, coconut aminos, lime juice, coconut crystals, and fish sauce. Stir until well mixed.
Turn down heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour everything in the pot into a blender. Begin to blend and add basil and scallion little by little until mixture is smooth.
Add sauce back to pot, and also add diced chicken, carrots, and zucchini.
Simmer on medium low heat until cooked through. This should take about 10 minutes.
Portion and serve over your "noodles" or "rice."
