  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 8 cups

Lots of noodles, crisp-tender veggies, and nicely spiced broth combine for a springtime pleaser. For less spice, use less curry paste and skip the chile pepper.


  • 8 oz. dried pad Thai brown rice noodles, broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh lemongrass
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 cup bias-sliced fresh snow pea pods
  • 2 carrots, cut or shredded into thin bite-size strips (1 cup)
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • ½ onion, very thinly sliced (¼ cup)
  • 1 fresh Fresno, jalapeño, or serrano chile pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a 4-qt. Dutch oven combine broth, curry paste, garlic, lemongrass, and ginger. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in bell pepper, pea pods, and carrots. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes more. Stir in coconut milk and cooked noodles; heat through. Season with salt.
  4. Top servings with basil, cilantro, onion, and, if desired, chile pepper. Serve with lime wedges.

Looks delicious but how does this make 8 cups when there are only 4 cups of total liquid in the ingredient list?
