Time for Thai

August 25, 2012

Thai style zucchini Noodles

It seems forever since we have had a Thai meal and I have been really craving those sweet, salty, sour elements. This dish is far from being Thai but is inspired by similar flavours. Recently, I bought some enormous zucchini, perfect for “noodling” so I decided to give them a Thai touch for a light meal. I used a vege shredder  which can be bought very cheaply from any Asian supermarket, or if you are lucky and have a Benriner, this is perfect!

400g zucchini, shredded & LIGHTLY steamed
50g coconut oil
3 tabs almonds
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1 decent knob ginger
1/2 red chilli
1 tab sweet chilli sauce
1 tab fish sauce
juice of 1 lime or lemon
1 teas coconut flour
dash of coconut milk (optional)
fried shallots to garnish
shredded chicken to garnish (optional)
 
Mill the almonds to flour and set aside. Mince the garlic & ginger on SP 9 for 10 seconds. Add the onion & chilli and chop finely on SP 6, 4 seconds. Add the coconut oil and saute on VAROMA temp for 3 minutes. Stir in the sauces, almonds, coconut flour & juice and cook on SP 1 for 2 minutes on 100°C . If you prefer a thinner sauce add a dash of water or coconut milk. Check for seasoning and toss through the zucchini and garnish with chicken and fried shallots to serve.

    Hi Sarah, have you seen this one, much cheaper than the Benriner and does a great job.
