Spicy Thai Chicken Coconut Soup with Zoodles

This spiralized version of Tom Khai Gai is a lightened up spin on the classic Thai chicken coconut soup, with some extra spicy flavor and zucchini noodles.

Spicy Thai Chicken Coconut Soup with Zoodles

While I love making healthy, spiralized version of my favorite pasta dishes, I think I may love Inspiralizing my favorite noodle dishes more! There’s so much flavor in Asian noodle dishes, and I always want to lick the bowl clean when I’m done, but I get so full off the traditional style noodles used.

With this Thai Chicken Coconut Soup, the zucchini noodles have the exact same consistency as a traditional noodle, but you’re eating veggies! The zucchini noodles are detoxifying, full of vitamins, and easier to cook (they literally take only a few minutes to heat up in the soup.)

If you love coconut soups, you’ll love this healthier version of Tom Khai Gai, using zoodles. The soup is also a bit spicy, thanks to red curry paste used that traditionally isn’t found in Tom Khai Gai! I think it steps up the flavor in this soup, but if you want a more traditional style soup, omit it.

You can change this up by using carrot or daikon noodles instead of zucchini, for a different texture, flavor, and color.

Is there a tab for PRINT?
Meaghan says:
Yes! At the bottom of the post, by the recipe name! There should be a print button. Let us know if you're not seeing that.
Jen says:
Is thai fish sauce different than regular fish sauce? Just want to make sure I have the right stuff!
Meaghan says:
Hi Jen! The flavor profile is slightly different but traditional fish sauce would be just as delicious! We always love experimenting.
Anonymous says:
I couldn’t find the PRINT tab either.
Meaghan says:
Scroll all the way down to the recipe. You'll find it under the nutrition information. To the right of the Title of the recipe you should see a PRINT RECIPE button. Let me know if you're still not seeing it! Perhaps try a different browser?

If I omitted the Thai curry paste (not a fan of spicy) would it still taste the same?
Meaghan says:
You could definitely leave it out and still enjoy it!

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
