Ingredients
Meatballs
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup red onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated carrots
  • 2 tbsp almond flour (or breadcrumbs)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
Sauce
  • 13.5 oz light coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp Thai Kitchen red curry paste
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 tbsp thai basil chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp arrowroot flour
Other
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced (120 grams)
  • 10.7 oz butternut squash spirals (307 grams)
  • 10.7 oz zucchini spirals (307 grams)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with SILPAT or aluminum foil.

  2. Add all meatball ingredients to a bowl and mix until just combined.  Roll into approximately 1" to 1 1/2" meatballs and arrange on baking sheet.  Mist the top of the meatballs with olive oil or coconut oil.  Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.

  3. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add garlic and sliced bell pepper and sauté for about 2-3 minutes until pepper has slightly softened and garlic is fragrant.

  4. Add curry paste, lime juice, and all but 1/4 cup of the coconut milk.  Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer for 10 minutes.

  5. Whisk remaining coconut milk with arrowroot flour, then slowly pour into sauce while continuously stirring sauce.  Return sauce to a boil, then remove from heat and mix in Thai basil and cooked meatballs.  Set aside.

  6. Heat remaining 1 tsp of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.  Add zucchini and butternut squash spirals and toss with olive oil.  Sauté noodles until they reach desired tenderness (mine took about 5 minutes).  

  7. Divide noodles evenly into 4 serving dishes.  Top with meatballs and sauce.  Garnish with cilantro before serving.
