This healthy and comforting vegan Thai dish features spiralized squash, bite-size veggies, and wide brown rice noodles, making it easy to get a little bit of everything with every forkful. Thai red curry paste and fresh Thai chiles bring the heat. Chiles can vary in heat level depending on growing conditions; if you’re unsure of your spice preferences, we recommend starting with one chile then adding more if you want more of a kick.

Tip: Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.

  • 1 to 2 fresh Thai chiles, very thinly sliced (see tip in intro)
  • 8 oz. thin green beans, cut into bite-size pieces

Great dish. I used dried Thai chili peppers because I want able to find any fresh and it turned out great. I also threw inn some diced onion and red bell peppers because I had to use them up. Thank u for sharing. I’ll absolutely be making this again.

This is one of my go-to recipes I use on a regular basis. It is a complete meal and very flavorful. I make it with whole wheat linguine rather than rice noodles since I find that rice noodles get mushy when reheating leftovers. Using frozen green beans saves a lot of prep work, and it tastes just as good too.

If you put your rice noodles in water to reheat, they taste like you just made them. I usually keep them separate from main dishes and combine together with leftovers after reheated in water.
