Try this healthy stir fry that uses zucchini and carrots as a base to sneak more veggies in your diet 😉

The coconut, limes, garlic, chiles, ginger and cilantro add so much flavor — oh my!

Ingredients:

  • 3 limes, juiced and zest 1 lime
  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce (we used coconut aminos for a healthier choice)
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 red chile, chopped and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
  • 1 large carrot, spiralized
  • 2 medium zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb cooked, peeled, deveined shrimp

Preparation:

Finely grate zest of one lime into a large bowl, then squeeze in juice of all limes (should yield about 1/4 cup). Whisk in coconut milk and soy sauce or coconut aminos. Finely grate in garlic, ginger, and 1/2 red chile. Finely chop 1/2 cup cilantro and stir into the bowl along with scallion whites. Thinly slice rest of chile and set aside.
Using a spiralizer fitted with the finest noodle blade, spiralize carrot, then use a larger blade to spiralize zucchini. Toss voodles in coconut milk mixture; let sit for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, fold in red pepper, shrimp, and remaining cilantro. Sprinkle with remaining scallions and sliced chile.  Makes 4 servings.
