Green Curry Noodle Soup
with tofu, napa, and mushrooms

Active: 30 minTotal: 30 min

Our recent green curry noodle soup was such a hit, we're bringing another variation of it with crunchy, sweet napa and earthy mushrooms. Plus, since it uses tofu, it's also a budget meal!
Smarts: Boiling the napa and mushrooms in the soup deepens the flavor of the final broth.


Green Curry Noodle Soup with Tofu, Napa, and Mushrooms:
  • Napa cabbage, small - 1/2 head, sliced
  • Mushrooms, brown or cremini - 8 oz, sliced
  • Jalapenos - 1, sliced
  • Firm tofu - 1 lb, sliced into rectangles
  • Noodles, udon (or other Asian noodles) - 8 oz
  • Green curry paste - 2 1/2 Tbsp, more to taste

Tofu just isn't my thing, I should have swapped for shrimp. Next time! The soup itself was very flavorful, it was just the tofu texture that puts me off.

It didn't look really appealing, but it was great comfort food.
