Vegan Curry Noodles

These flavor-loaded, vegan curry noodles are perfect for those times when you need to throw together a meal ridiculously quickly. This can literally be prepared in the time it takes to boil a kettle of water, plus three minutes. These are the kind of noodles that don’t need to be boiled – just soaked in boiling water for three minutes and they’re done.

These gluten-free noodles are delicious, quick, and easy to prepare. I love how the noodles get infused with the flavor of the curry powder just from sitting in the hot water. And the spinach wilts perfectly from the heat of the water without getting overcooked.

I opted to use brown rice noodles in this recipe but you can substitute white rice noodles if you prefer. You can also substitute and type of greens you prefer. I love using spinach in this recipe, but baby kale or arugula would be nice too.

Optional additions

Some other delicious additions to this vegan curry noodles would be some finely sliced red, green, or yellow peppers, finely sliced carrots, zucchini, red onion, scallions, or mushrooms. You can add really any veggies you like to create a more substantial dish using whatever you have handy and enjoy.

Optional toppings for these vegan curry noodles

I topped these noodles with some sesame seeds, but sometimes I also like adding some chopped peanuts or cashews for a little crunch and some extra protein. If you have any leftover cooked tofu or tempeh to use up, that would be a perfect addition to this dish to up the protein factor too.

If you like your noodles on the spicier side, some freshly chopped chilis would be perfect on top of these noodles. I used dried chilis this time but the fresh stuff is even better if you like things hot.
