Red Curry Noodle Bowl

This recipe is from Thai Kitchen’s website with a few small adjustments to the recipe (and omitting the fish sauce). These noodles bowls make a lovely dinner and it reheats wonderfully for lunch the next day.

(Makes 4 servings)

For the curry:

  • 1 can coconut milk (you can use light if you’re watching calories, I’ve made it both ways and barely notice a difference)
  • 1 cup veg broth
  • 3 tbsp thai red chili paste (I use the red curry paste from Thai Kitchen, available at most grocery stores in the Asian product section)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce (replacing the fish sauce!)

For the stir fry:

  • 3- 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 12 Asparagus spears, remove bottom 2 inches of stems (usually a lighter color and thicker to chew) and cut into thirds
  • 4 baby bok choys, remove bottom stems and separate stalks/leaves to stir fry
  • 1 c loosely packed basil leaves
  • 4 tbsp Crushed cashews
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (to stir fry)
  • Rice noodles (4 servings)

To make the curry:

Heat coconut oil and curry paste in a sauce pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, until they blend together into a liquid sauce. Add coconut milk, vegetable broth, brown sugar, soy sauce and red pepper flakes. Continue simmer on low while you cook, stirring occasionally.

To make the noodles:

In another small sauce pan, cook the rice noodles according to package instructions. Strain them and set aside (they cook fast).

To make the vegetables:

In a large wok, heat 1 tbsp coconut oil until liquid. Add broccoli florets, chopped bok choy stalks and leaves and chopped asaragus spears. Stir fry covered at a medium-high heat: covering with a lid and stirring vegetables every minute for roughly 8- 10 minutes (until the vegetables are cooked through). Half way through, add basil leaves and stir fry them in with the vegetables.
