Lemongrass Green Coconut Curry Soup With Zucchini Noodles
A very light and healthy soup great for lazy days.
There are just those days that I really can’t take another bite coz I had a very heavy breakfast or lunch plus a big dessert. So by the time I need to have my next meal. I still feel bloated by my body needs to eat already.
This is one of those recipes I keep for days like I mentioned above. Ok, I know most f you would think that noodles is actually heavy in calories and the soup will just make me feel more bloated. But believe me when I say this is the perfect light dish for a very light meal within the day. And since the cool breeze is starting to spread across town, the hot soup is a really good choice for a dish.
You can even adjust this curry soup to your liking. My hubby would at times ask me to add coconut milk to give it that extra flavor. And you can experiment all you want on what else you want to add to it.
Check out the recipe below.
