By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 25 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 35 minutes



1 C sliced onion

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled & roughly chopped

2 tbsp vegetable oil

3 to 4 tbsp thai yellow curry paste

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1/4 tsp ground cayenne (optional)

1 can full-fat coconut milk

3 C low-sodium vegetable stock

small handful kaffir lime leaves

1 red pepper, thinly sliced (matchsticks)

2 C broccoli florets

2 tbsp lime juice

sea salt, to taste

250 g thick flat rice noodles

fried tofu

1/2 a brick firm tofu

3 tbsp vegetable oil, for frying

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp paprika


2 green onions, finely chopped

handful cilantro

lime wedges (optional)


1Heat a stock pot over medium heat with vegetable oil and sauté onions for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add in garlic and ginger and continuing sautéing for a couple more minutes until soft and fragrant.

2Stir in curry paste, turmeric, and cayenne, coating the onions, garlic, and ginger.

3Add coconut milk and stir to combine. Add kaffir lime leaves and low-sodium vegetable stock and bring to a simmer.

4Meanwhile, cook rice noodles to al dente in a separate pot of boiling water. This is to prevent the noodles from soaking up all the broth.

5Prepare the tofu by heating a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Pat the brick of tofu with a towel or paper towels to soak up excess water. It doesn’t need to be completely pressed. Cube the tofu to your liking.

6Add the vegetable oil to the hot cast iron skillet and place cubes of tofu in the pan.

7Season with a pinch each of sea salt, ground black pepper, and paprika. After 4 minutes, flip the tofu. Season the other side and continue frying, flipping about every 4 to 6 minutes to get all the sides crispy and golden brown.

8Just before serving, ensure the broth is simmering and add vegetables. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables are slightly crisp and bright in color.

9At the end, add in lime juice and sea salt to taste.

10Drain noodles from the boiling water and place in the bottom of your serving bowls. Pour soup over top and garnish with green onions, cilantro, and a lime wedge.
