This Crudité Platter with Dairy-Free Tzatziki Sauce makes for such a light and refreshing snack, appetizer, or side-dish! The perfect bright and colorful dish to make with any seasonal veggies you have on hand! Dairy-free, egg-free, grain-free, gluten-free, and Whole30 compliant! This will be the most gorgeous appetizer on the table, for sure!
Is there anything better than a dish filled with colorful fresh produce? We blanched the carrots, broccoli, and snow peas in this platter to create that pop of color! Blanching stops the enzyme actions that can cause loss of flavor and color in vegetables, making it a great technique to use before freezing vegetables or serving them raw!
This would be the perfect spread for any dinner party, brunch, or holiday celebration!
Fill a large saucepan with water and toss in salt. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside.
Prep you vegetables and place them in the boiling water. Set your timer for three minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the broccoli, red radish, snap peas and watermelon radish and place vegetables into the ice water. Set your timer for two more minutes. After two minutes, remove the carrots with the slotted spoon and place into the ice water. Remove the vegetables from the ice water and pat dry. Serve on platter of choice!
Place shredded cucumber in a medium mixing bowl. Add 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and let sit for 5 minutes.
Strain the water out of the cucumber. Add the cucumber to the small mixing bowl with the coconut milk mixture. Stir well. Taste and adjust seasoning as desire. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika.

This Green Coconut Curry Ramen is hearty, flavorful, and creamy without any of the dairy. It’s a great meatless and gluten-free dish for any night of the week that comes together in 30-minutes!
Coconut Curry Ramen Soup
I love hearty and comforting soups that are perfect for any season, and this Green Coconut Curry Ramen is definitely a WINNER. It’s a comfort favorite that I find myself making week after week.
Can I use other veggies?
This soup is perfect for one of those clean out the kitchen kind of meals. You can customize it with so many different vegetables!
We love using these vegetables:
Red Bell Pepper
Baby Bok Choy
Garlic & Ginger
This dish is gluten-free, bean-free, egg-free, and Whole30 compliant if you swap the rice noodles for zucchini noodles (or any other spiralized veggie!).
All the veggies, all the flavor!
Can Ramen be healthy?
Traditionally when you think of ramen, you think of ramen noodles. I loved those as a kid, but healthy, hard no. The sodium alone is scary! We took traditional ramen soup and made our own spin, with curry spices, rice noodles, and of course lots of veggies!
1 14.5 ounce can coconut milk, only the coconut cream at the top and save the coconut water for smoothies.
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice, use the rest as garnish
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 small baby bok chop, ends removed and sliced in half
1 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup snow peas
2 carrots, ribboned using a vegetable peeler
1 package thin rice noodles of choice, cooked according to package instructions
1. In a medium dutch oven heat sesame oil on medium-high heat. Cook ginger, garlic, leeks, shallots, mushrooms and red pepper until the red pepper begins to soften and the mushrooms caramelize. About 5-8 minutes.
2. Add in curry paste, chili sauce, salt, pepper and curry powder and cook for about 30 seconds.
3. Pour in vegetable broth, coconut milk, fish sauce, and lime juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once at a boil, turn down heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Taste and adjust spices as needed. If it is too spicy, add more lime juice.
5. Add baby bok choy, bean sprouts, snap peas and carrots and cook just until bok choy is wilted.
6. Serve warm in bowls of choice with rice noodles! The rice noodles soak up a lot of the broth, so only add in when ready to eat.
*The green curry paste is very spicy. Start with the 1/4 teaspoon and add more to taste.
