This easy Thai green curry is loaded with vegetables and gets tons of flavor from prepared curry paste and coconut milk. Broiling the vegetables gives them a smoky char that brings more depth to this noodle soup. If it's too hot to even think about turning on the oven, grill them for the same effect. This healthy dinner also happens to be vegan and gluten-free.

  • Toss bok choy, green beans and zucchini with 2 tablespoons oil and salt in a large bowl. Transfer to the prepared pan. Broil, stirring once, until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Keep warm.

  • Zest and juice lime. Whisk the zest with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, scallion whites, tamari (or soy sauce), curry paste, brown sugar and coriander in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until starting to sizzle, about 2 minutes. Cook, stirring constantly, until very fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in coconut milk, broth and the lime juice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.

  • Cook noodles in the boiling water according to package directions. Drain and rinse well under cold water. Divide among 4 large soup bowls. Top with the curry, the vegetables, scallion greens and peanuts. Garnish with basil and/or cilantro, if desired.

Tips

Tips: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

A fiery mixture of green chiles and Thai seasonings, such as lemongrass and galangal, Thai green curry paste is a kickin'-hot flavor base for soups and curries, like these noodles. But don't stop there. Use it to spice up salad dressing, marinades or even the cooking liquid for rice.
