Veggie Noodle Stir-Fry
Use a vegetable peeler to slice the carrots, zucchini, and squash into wide, thin ribbons, then cut the ribbons lengthwise into thin julienned slices with a knife. You will have a medley of brightly colored vegetables all intertwined like long, thin, beautiful noodles. This is a dish that cooks in a matter of minutes and would go well as a side dish with roasted chicken or pork.
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (1 orange)
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 teaspoons red curry paste
1/2 cup peanut oil

1 cup firmly packed fresh basil leaves
1 cup firmly packed fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves
1 cup thinly sliced red radishes
1 cup chopped peanuts
Equipment: Porcelain coated grid, Dutch Oven
Set the EGG for direct cooking with the porcelain coated grid.
Preheat the EGG to 400ºF.
Set the Dutch Oven on the grid and preheat for 10 minutes.
To make the sauce, use a whisk to stir the lemon juice, orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, and red curry paste together in a small bowl.
Pour the peanut oil into the preheated Dutch Oven. Add the shallots, ginger, garlic, bell pepper, and snow peas. Close the lid of the EGG and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the cabbage, carrots, zucchini, squash, bean sprouts, and scallions and cook for 1 minute. Add the sauce and cook for 30 seconds. Remove the Dutch Oven from the heat, then add the basil, cilantro, and mint and stir.
Place the mixture in individual bowls and garnish with the radishes and peanuts. Serve immediately. Serves 4 as a main course, or 8 as a side dish
