Ingredients

Thai Green Coconut Curry
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 2 zucchini, sliced thickly into 1" strips in length
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pkg rice noodles
  • 2 cups cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1" piece of ginger
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tbsp lemongrass - lemongrass isn't scary! All you have to do is peel off the outside layers and cut a chunk from the middle. Toss it directly into your Vitamix, food processor, or blender and no chopping will be needed!
  • 1 1/2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 2-3 green onions, chopped
  • sriracha
  • soy sauce


  • The Curry Base

    To make the green curry base, combine the cilantro, garlic clove, ginger, lime juice, lemongrass and 1/2 a cup of water or vegetable broth in your Vitamix, food processor, or blender and blend until you get a saucy mixture.

    Saute

    In a large pot on your stove, add the onion, zucchini, and mushrooms to about 1 cup of water or vegetable broth and saute. You can add an additional amount of garlic and ginger here if you’d like.

    The Rice Noodles

    You can make as many rice noodles as you’d like for this, just keep it separate and add the noodles into each bowl at the end.

    Simmer

    Once the veggies are tender crisp (about 15 minutes of cooking) add in the green curry base and 1 can of light coconut milk. Continue cooking for another 15 minutes until it starts to simmer.

    Serve

    Add a good amount of noodles to each bowl and ladle the thai green curry over the top. Top with sriracha, soy sauce, and a good sprinkle of green onions.
