Where do I begin? It is “as if” the food God blessed me with a visit today, and I somehow manifested this glorious vegan green curry noodle soup!
I know that sounds a bit dramatic, but I loved this recipe so much. It was an unforgettable combo of taste and tang loaded with vibrant color. Not only that, it is healthy and packed with nutrients.
Now what's the catch??? It's the flavor bomb! I highly recommend creating the vegan green curry paste from scratch rather than from a jar. It takes a little effort with some ingredients you don't always use, but it's worth it. If you don't have time and need to use vegan green curry paste from a jar, I understand. Just start with a tablespoon and keep tasting and adding.
Another fun thing about this vegan green curry noodle soup is anything goes. I added broccolini, mushrooms, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, basil infused light coconut milk and tofu. My noodles were store bought and were a blend of tofu, shirataki and Asian yams for a total of 20 calories and 6 carbs. There are many prepared noodles, but I like House Foods the best.
Hope you enjoy this vegan green curry noodle soup as much as I did.

I’m a little confused. It says to add green Chile paste…do you mean green curry paste. And regarding the tofu. I don’t see it in the ingredient list. How much and how is it used in the soup? Cubed, ???? Did I miss something? Thanks!
Gina – you are a lifesaver! Thanks for the heads up. Fixed and yes it is green curry paste. Have a wonderful Saturday! Nancy
I’m a guy who loves a good dish and who would love to learn to cook. As I read this article I had a smile from ear to ear. I called my wife to check it out (who by the way is a great cook) and asked if we could try to perfect 1 recipe a week together. she agreed! This will be a little different from taking down trees but really looking forward to vegan dishes. Thanks for sharing! Tim
