Vegetarian Thai Curry Noodles

 

So I’ve discovered a new foodie love and it’s right up there with Pinterest…. so of course I had to share!

Have you ever heard of Yummly? Basically it’s Pinterest— but just for food! So, totally up my alley. I only recently started playing around with it, but I’ve already discovered so many creative and delicious recipes. There’s a few cool pieces that I love about Yummly so far:

  • it’s super organized and easy to get started
  • they give great recommendations based on what you’ve “yummed” recently
  • it’s so easy to add favorite recipes to Yummly and your recipe box (check out the “Yum!” button at the bottom of my posts)

Click here to check out my recipe box and collections, and then make sure you start your own account! You can add recipes from my blog by clicking the “yum” button on the bottom of my posts, or by “yumming” them from my recipe box on yummly.com 🙂

 

Vegetarian Thai Curry Noodles

 

I’m so off track— these noodles! Oh my goodness, I love them. I love them so much, mostly because they’re so simple and pretty and delicious. Almost too pretty to eat… but not pretty enough it turns out!

I originally got the idea for them because I had some leftover red curry paste in my fridge after making this thai red curry noodle soup (which is equally as amazing). I’m all about using up leftover food, whatever it may be, and that typically leads into recipe inspiration for this blog. Who would have thought?!

A few ingredients (and minutes) later, and these noodles were made and my fork was already twisting away! It’s that easy. Definitely a perfect weeknight meal or quick lunch. Now, I didn’t make mine too spicy (note the amount of curry paste), but you can always spice it up with some additional curry paste or, my go-to, Sriracha. You know that happened.

Yes, I think we need a sriracha intervention. It’s getting bad.

Hope you enjoy! What is your favorite thing to make with curry paste? I’d love to hear more ideas from you guys 🙂

  1. I LOVE yummly! I pretty much only pin food on pinterest anyway, and on yummy, I don’t have to filter through all of the other stuff. These noodles look so good!

  2. Mmmm, I love everything about this recipe! Can’t wait to try it. And this will be my first buckwheat noodle experience, so that’s fun!

    • I don’t use buckwheat noodles to often either, so it was such a fun recipe for me to create! Definitely need to be using those more often! Hope you enjoy 🙂
