These Thai Stir Fry Curry Zucchini Noodles are our favorite meatless meal that’s also gluten free and vegan! It’s chock full of veggies and nutrients, but doesn’t skip out on the flavor. You can make this simple dish in just a few minutes in the fry pan. It’s also a great way to use up lots of zucchini if you have an abundance and the perfect way to fit extra veggies into your diet. All the while this dish tastes better than takeout, but couldn’t be healthier!
2–3 Tablespoons avocado oil, or olive oil
2 carrots, 6 ounces
1 small white onion, 8 ounces
1 small red bell pepper, 6 ounces
1 small head of broccoli, 8 ounces
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon curry powder
6-8 zucchini, 2 pounds
2 Tablespoons coconut aminos, or gluten free soy sauce
sea salt to taste
Slice both ends off the onion, and peel away the tough outer layer. Cut the onion in half from the top to the bottom, and lay both halves flat side down on the cutting board. Cut across the rounded top to create 1/4″ thick half moon slices.
Cut the ends off the zucchini and spiralize them into zucchini noodles.
Preheat a large skillet (15″) over medium high heat.
When the pan is very hot but not smoking, add 2 Tablespoons avocado oil and the carrots, onion, bell pepper, and broccoli. Stir fry until the veggies are crisp/tender, about 3-4 minutes.
Add the garlic and curry powder to the pan and stir fry for another minute or until fragrant and well mixed in.
If at any time the stir fry seems dry, add the additional tablespoon of oil or a tablespoon of water to keep it from sticking.
When the curry powder is mixed in, turn the heat up to high and add the zucchini noodles and soy sauce. Stir fry 1-2 minutes to mix the zucchini noodles in. Season to taste with sea salt, (especially if you’re using coconut aminos) and remove the pan from the heat when the zucchini noodles are still a bit crunchy because they will continue to cook.
The easiest way I’ve found to stir fry zucchini noodles is to use a pair of tongs.
