Ingredients
 

  • 8 oz of brown rice noodles or your favorite pasta
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 cup Thai red curry paste
  • 1 + 1/4 cup coconut milk, I recommend full-fat
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce, 1 Tbsp if you are not using low sodium
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp honey, optional if you want sweetness
  • 2 cups frozen stir fry vegetables
  • Garnish Options: sliced green onion, fresh cilantro, crushed peanuts, and/or sesame seeds to top

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil on the stovetop and cook the pasta according to the package until it is al dente. I reduce the recommended cook time by 2 minutes. Strain and set to the side when done.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large saute pan with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to medium. Add in minced shallot and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until translucent.
  • Add in garlic, ginger, and red curry paste. Stir and cook for an additional 1 minute until aromatic.
  • Add in coconut milk, vegetable broth, soy sauce, lime juice, and honey (if desired). Stir, bring everything to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Let the sauce simmer for 5 minutes. Start with 2 Tbsp of vegetable broth and if the sauce is too thick add more.
  • Stir in frozen stir fry vegetables and let simmer for another 3 - 5 minutes, until the vegetables are defrosted.
  • Combine the pasta and sauce. Mix to fully combine and let simmer for 1 - 2 minutes until the sauce thickens, and pasta is coated.
  • Garnish with what you want and enjoy!

Notes

Brown Rice Noodles: You can substitute with any shape or brand of pasta. I also love eating this with Banza for extra protein.
Fresh Ginger: You can substitute with 1 teaspoon of ginger powder.
Vegetable Broth: You can substitute with chicken broth or water.
Using Light Coconut Milk: If you use light coconut milk, mix in 1 teaspoon of arrowroot powder, cornstarch, or tapioca flour into the coconut milk before adding it to the pan. This will help thicken the pasta sauce.
