Lemongrass Thai Curry Soup with Zoodles

Vegetarian Lemongrass Green Coconut Curry Soup with Zucchini Noodles
My fancy new kitchen gadget, the Spiralizer has finally arrived - Wohooooo!! I have been wanting to try to cook with Zoodles (yes that's what Zucchini noodles are called now) for so long and now finally I can.
The possibilities of cooking with them are endless since they can replace noodles in so many dishes and added bonus is that they are so much more healthier than regular noodles. Toss some in some Aglio olio, pesto, tomato sauce or a bowl of soup and I promise you, you will not miss the noodles. Now you know my obsession with Asian food, so of course, I had to try my first Zoodle recipe with Asian flavors.
It has been pouring in Mumbai and what can be better than snuggling with a bowl of steaming soup and watching your favorite soaps.

Here is a recipe of Lemongrass Thai Curry with Zoodles

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (or virgin coconut oil)
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Thai green curry paste
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 50 gm mushrooms of choice (a large handful)
  • 60 gm snow peas
  • 60 gm baby bok choy, chopped in 3" pieces
  • 1/3 cup diced scallions
  • ½ cup small-cubed tofu
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 large zucchini or 2 medium zucchinis,
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions:

  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add in the lemongrass, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and green curry paste. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. 
  • Add the broth and water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add in the mushrooms, snow peas, bok choy, scallions, tofu, lime juice, and zucchini noodles. 
  • Let cook for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • Once tender, add in the cilantro, season generously with salt and pepper, and stir to combine and serve into bowls.

I have tried this recipe myself and it tastes delish. Cook yourself a bowl and let me know your experience in the comments section below.
