Craving a delicious coconut-milk based soup? This recipe is an easy and quick way to satisfy your hankering. And, if you haven't tried "zoodles" (noodles made from zucchini) yet, this is a great way to start! Use a spiralizer to prepare them, but if you don't have one, a julienne peeler will work just fine. Set the "noodles" aside as you prepare the flavorful coconut milk broth, which is lightly perfumed with garlic, ginger and kaffir lime leaves (which can be found in most Asian grocery stores). Add the hot broth to the noodles just before serving to make sure they keep their crunchy texture. Once you try them, you'll be hooked!
