Shrimp and veggie curry bowl–it might be one of our new favorites!
This recipe was passed along from another healthy-food-loving friend and of course I tweaked it just a little for our family but you just have to try it!! Why?? Because it’s easy, healthy, kid-and-farmer-approved and a major mom-win because the NOODLES are actually zucchini zoodles!!
The curry is not spicy (our toddler would never approve of that haha!), so you can top this with jalapeño slices at the end if you want to add some heat. I did serve everyone else’s over brown rice, so that’s an option if you like.
It’s packed with healthy fat from the coconut milk and tons of veggies. The sauce is so good that I *might* have caught my farmer literally drinking the last of it out of the pan (mental note: double the recipe next time).
I have made it with chicken before too but I found some shrimp in the freezer that needed used (I wish shrimp wasn’t so expensive in Nebraska so I could buy it more than twice a year…..). I think it would even be delicious with leftover sliced steak.
It’s also 21 Day Fix approved AND Paleo too if you follow a Paleo lifestyle.
