Thai coconut zoodle soup is a super easy, whole food, soup you can make in a jiffy. I got the idea from this premade meal kit for simple zucchini spiral pho soup and made it from scratch. You can modify it to be more or less complicated. My Thai wife tried it after being hangry and my offering to cook. She said, "It's surprisingly good! I'll eat yours if you don't finish." Insert kiss on the cheek.
About the Ingredients
Zoodles are just zucchini cut into noodles. The health benefits are obvious, super low carbs and lots of vitamins, not to mention fiber. The Thai Coconut Broth, by Ocean's Halo, is something I picked up at Kroger. It's actually made out of seaweed and it's super healthy with a lot of vitamin D and Iodine.
In the spirit of using vegetable ingredients, I also used hard-packed tofu for the protein, although you can use whatever you want of course. I just sauteed the tofu with a little bit of sesame oil and light soy sauce on medium-high, until blackened around the edges. After that, it's mushrooms, red onions, radish, sugar snap peas, jalapeno, mint, Thai basil, cilantro, and lime wedges.
