Coconut Curry Bean Thread Noodles

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The original recipe is from Vegan Express, but I tampered with it a bit:

1/2 package bean thread noodles (I used brown rice vermicelli)

1 tbsp olive oil (I used 1 tsp)

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 can light coconut milk

1 can baby corn

1 cup snowpeas

1 medium Zucchini, cut in 2″ strips

1 medium red or orange bell pepper, cut in 2″ strips

1 cup sliced mushrooms

3 green onions, cut in 1″ lengths

2 tbsps curry powder

1/4 tsp Thai red curry paste


Cover noodles in boiling water and let stand, covered for a few minutes until soft.  Drain, rinse and cut up with scissors.

Heat the oil, add garlic and saute over med-high heat until golden.  Add the remaining ingredients, bring to boil, lower heat, simmer 3 minutes.  Add the noodles and season with salt.  cover and let stand 5 minutes until noodles have absorbed most of the coconut milk.

Note:  Each time I make this, I vary the vegetables.  I think, in the pictures, I used asparagus and cauliflower and slivered carrots and no baby corn, zucchini or snowpeas.  In other words, throw in whatever vegetables work for you!

    The coconut curry and black bean soup were delicious. Even Shaun, who is not a foodie by any means, comments on the noodles. He says “mmmmm TASTY!” Now that’s high praise from a man who would rather not eat but just keep playing video games and watching Harry Potter.

    I forgot to ask you, where do you find bean thread noodles?

    • msokane says:

      Bean thread noodles do not seem to be readily available at “western” grocery stores, but the rice noodles (vermicelli) are. You can buy bean thread noodles at any Asian grocery store. I just bought a package at Canadian Tire of all places!

    Julia, I love the new look of the blog. The photos are great and your 3 new recipes are on my hit list for September. I’m always on thelookout for tofu recipes since my recipes are rather “blah”. The triangles will be my first creation! I don’t know how you find the time to update this blog but I am so happy you do. I am following in your foodie footsteps!
