Food: Dinner Tonight: Coconut Curry Noodles or Chicken

I do love coconut curry or around this time of year, butternut squash curry I normally order from my favorite eatery in the city here, and here.  So, here’s whats happened. I assumed we were finally getting our warmer temperatures in the city, but it turns out, we’ve had nothing but cold windy days, overcast, and definitely the feel of Autumn in the air.  Which of course has me craving soups of sorts – and so this recipe for tonight’s dinner:

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 ounces rice noodles  {or I’ll add boiled chicken pieces instead of the rice noodles for my diet}
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 zucchini, or summer squash, diced
  • 2 ears sweet corn kernels, removed from the cob
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2-3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 14 ounce can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (soy sauce for vegan option)   {not a fan of fish sauce so that will be omitted}
  • 2 teaspoons honey   {not necessary, but it’s all up to you}
  • juice and zest from 1/2 a lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro OR basil, roughly chopped (use you personal favorite)
  • sliced jalapeño pepper and green onions, for serving  {more}
