Our Thai-inspired vegan peanut curry is creamy, rich, packed full of flavour and absolutely delicious.
If you already know us a little bit you probably know how much we love Asian food, especially Thai food. We enjoy making our vegan curries from scratch and adding loads of fresh veggies to them. This vegan peanut curry is our all-time favourite and we hope it will be yours too.
Curries are always a great option when we have people over for lunch or dinner. You can cook the meal using one big pot and it can be prepared in advance. Depending on our guests' preferences, we make the Thai curries milder or spicier and use the fresh veggies that we already have at home.
This vegan Thai Peanut curry recipe is perfect for kids and toddlers as well. If you are looking for a curry for kids, this is your place too! The curry sauce is mild and the dish is packed full of veggies. We like adding Luca's favourite veggies such as green beans, carrots and mushrooms for him to enjoy the meal.
Our Thai Peanut Curry is:
- Gluten-free if using tamari instead of soy sauce.
- Easy to make
- Main dish
How to cook Thai Peanut Curry
Tofu. For this recipe, we use tofu as the main protein (as well as the peanut butter). Tempeh is a great option for Thai curries as well. If you want some extra protein, add some toasted cashews or sesame seeds before serving the dish.
Spice Mix. We use a simple spice mix to marinate the tofu. You will probably already have everything at home or you will find them easily at your local supermarket. Our spice mix contains cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, coriander powder, sweet paprika and sugar.
Soy sauce or tamari. Used together with the spices to marinate the tofu. We use light soy sauce or tamari for a gluten-free option.
Curry paste. We made a simple curry paste that we learnt how to make while travelling around Thailand that uses garlic, onion, ginger, red chillies and carrot. We don't add the chillies if we are cooking for our toddler Luca. Everything gets slightly sauteed and blended into a paste. If you want to skip this part, you could use this peanut curry paste from Thai Kitchen.
Vegetable Stock or water. We prefer using vegetable stock as it gives the curry sauce a more intense flavour but you can use water or a stock cube.
Peanut butter or crushed peanuts. For our Peanut curry, you can use unsalted crushed peanuts or peanut butter. The easiest way is using smooth peanut butter.
Coconut milk. To make this curry creamy, we add coconut milk. You can as well add cashew cream or even soy cream or milk.
Fresh Veggies. Loads of fresh veggies! Chop as many veggies as you like to add to your Thai peanut curry. Our favourite vegetables to add to this vegetable curry are red peppers, broccoli, baby corn, carrot and cauliflower.
- Marinate the tofu. Cut a tofu block into cubes and prepare the marinade. In a small bowl mix soy sauce, cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, coriander powder, sweet paprika, and sugar. Add the marinade to the tofu and leave it to marinate while you chop the veggies.
- Chop the veggies. For our peanut curry, you can add any vegetables that you like or may have at home. For curries, we especially like broccoli, bell peppers, baby corn, zucchini, or carrots.
- Prepare the curry sauce. Heat some oil in a pan and add finely chopped garlic, onion, red chilies, ginger, and carrot. Stir fry for a couple of minutes and transfer into a big jug. Add 500ml of vegetable stock, crushed peanuts or peanut butter, sugar, and soy sauce. Blend all the ingredients until you have a smooth sauce. If you prefer to use a store-bought paste, this is the brand we recommend you buy.
- Cook the curry. Heat some oil in a big pan or pot and add the chopped vegetables and the marinated tofu. Cook for a couple of minutes until the vegetables start to turn golden. Add the peanut sauce and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and leave simmering for about 15 minutes. Adjust with salt and pepper and your curry will be ready to enjoy.
How to serve Vegetarian Peanut Curry
We like serving our curries with jasmine rice on the side. If you add more coconut milk, water, or homemade broth, the curry can be served as a coconut soup and even as a noodle soup if rice noodles are added to the broth.
For a better presentation, crushed peanuts or fresh chopped cilantro simply sprinkled on the top will make your dish look restaurant-like.
How to make delicious Thai curries at home
We only used to eat Thai curries when eating out, until we travelled around Asia for a good few months and realized how easy it was to cook Asian food at home when you have the right ingredients available.
We have a few tips or tricks when it comes to cooking Thai curries at home:
- Make the curry paste from scratch. We know for a fact that you can get a Thai curry using a store-bought paste, we have been there, but homemade paste, that’s another level.
- Use a good amount of garlic and ginger, both are essential ingredients in Asian cooking.
- Choose the right ingredients. If you have a nearby Asian store, go there to buy a good quality soy sauce, good quality spices, chillies, ginger, galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and any other ingredients that are commonly used. You can freeze the kaffir lime leaves, galangal, chillies and lemongrass to have for the next time you want to cook another curry.
- Use good quality coconut milk. When buying coconut milk always check the % of coconut extract that the can contains. The higher the better. If you are hesitating about which brand to buy, go directly for the can that contains a higher amount of coconut extract.
- Cook your curries in a non-stick pot or pan. We use our cast iron pan or pot when preparing curries as they are perfect for slow cooking.
FAQ and Tips
- Can this Peanut Curry be made in advance? Prepare and freeze the peanut curry sauce and the day you want to cook the meal simply add fresh veggies and tofu!
- Can I freeze the leftovers? Yes, you can freeze any leftovers for up to three months. I do not recommend using zucchini or potatoes if you want to freeze your curry after.
- Which type of tofu should I use? Firm tofu is the best tofu to use for this recipe. It won't break or crumble while cooking your curry.
- Is this curry toddler and kids-friendly? This peanut curry is perfect for the whole family. Simply omit the chillies from the curry paste and the whole family can enjoy this meal.
- Is this curry gluten-free? To make this vegetable curry gluten-free you'll need to use tamari instead of soy sauce and make sure you are using gluten-free stock.
- My sauce came out too watery, what can I do? If you want a thicker curry, you can add some flour or cornflour slurry (diluted cornflour in water). Another option is to use potato as one of the veggies, as it will soak some of the water of the sauce.

Seriously one the most delicious dishes I’ve ever made. We added in broccoli and kale and holy moly, sooooo good. We’ll definitely being making this again. And again. And again.
Thank you Erika! Happy to read that you enjoyed it as much as we do!
Lovely recipe, delicious!! I added broccoli, potatoes and red pepper. Probably the best thing I’ve made on ages. Recipe not too complicated either which suits me as I’m a reluctant cook !!!
Thank you Nicola, so glad to see your comment. We love adding potatoes to our curries too, such a great idea!
Jarrod Gritt says
This was absolutely delicious. As a vegan I often get asked the same sorts of questions; isn't it expensive? Is it not really complicated? Well it can be, just like any diet can be, but you can also make delicious food cheaply and easily. This recipe ticks both those boxes, I used veg that I had in, baby corn, mangetout and spinach. I will 100% make again, I would like to try it with some different veg next time, mix it up.
Thank you Jarrod! It can be cheap and easy to cook delicious vegan meals! And yeah, using any veggies that we have already at home is what we do most of the time 🙂 Happy you liked it!
Made this for dinner, both my girls (7&9) cleaned their plates! I left out the chilli, and stirred a chilli paste thru mine and my husbands. Delicious!
Happy yo hear this! we leave the chilli out sometimes if our toddler is having curry too!
I actually ended up omitting the coconut milk because my fryingpan turned out to be too small, but I added a splash of oat milk and it was still delicious! Though I don't doubt that it would be even better with it! I used carrots, corn and spinach for my veggies.
Thank you Emmy, oat milk is such a great alternative.
This was SOOOOOO good!! I didn't have tofu so I marinated chickpeas and mushrooms instead.
Thank you Sonia, those are great alternatives to add more protein to the dish if you don't have tofu 🙂
This was really delicious! We made it with baby corn, sugar snap peas and bell pepper. It was a flavour sensation. 100% will make again. Thank you!!
Yummy! Baby corn is such a great option for Thai curries 🙂
This looks amazing! I'm prepping some freezer meals for upcoming baby, do you think this would freeze okay?
Hi Annie! That's exciting 🙂 You can freeze the curry sauce and the day you want to cook the meal simply add fresh veggies and tofu! Congratulations!
One of my new favorite recipes!! I also chopped up some macadamia nuts and fresh coconut to garnish on top! A+
Oh wow! Such a great idea, love macadamia nuts at home as well and I'm sure the coconut gave it a delicious touch!
Tam Sanger says
I made this last night and loved it - so delicious! I added cauliflower, broccoli and sweet potato and it worked so well. Will definitely be making this again.
Yummy! We love cauliflower at home, sure it was lovely!
Tarren A Money says
I made this the other night timing was accurate on prep amd cook. I have never cooked with tofu, I used an extra firm organic brand and it crumbled badly, but the smell was very nice and it tasted very good. I can't watt to give it another shot. My dish didnt look as pretty so I'll have to work on that.
Thank you Tarren, about the tofu, I would suggest trying a different brand. Some brands crumble easily while others keep really firm during cooking.
Bert Johnson says
Not a big curry fan but this was mild and full of flavour. The best curry recipe I have ever found, absolutely delicious!
Thank you Bert!
Incredible recipe, thank you for sharing! Even my husband loved it, and that's the true test!!
We did corn, bok choy and some small diced potatoes. I also seared the tofu for a few minutes in oil before I added the veggies to the pan. It was perfect!
I'm excited for all the other combinations that can be made. 🙂
Wow! that combination sounds lovely 🙂 Happy you and your husband enjoyed the recipe!
Absolutely loved this recipe, halved it to make 2 portions and it went down a treat. My new favourite meal!!
Not difficult to make either.
Thank you Emily! So glad to read this 🙂
Anette Baugh says
This was delicious!
Thank you Anette!
Merle Jeffries says
Made this last night and wow, absolutely amazing 🙂 minus the chilli as my Father doesn't like chilli 🙁 added a little more peanut butter, a touch more soy and fried my tofu in cornstarch to give another texture to the dish, delicious 🙂 this will be going in the bank, thank you so much for sharing
Thank you Merle! Such a great idea to fry the tofu in cornstarch!
Made this tonight for dinner. There was plenty left over, so have frozen the extra portions.
I added potato, broccoli and mushrooms.
Thank you Claire!
My daughter doesn't like spicy so I left out the chili peppers and it was still tasty. I used bok choy, mushrooms and bell peppers as my chopped veggies. I also used coconut cream because I didn't have coconut milk. It tasted great and I will make it again.
Thank you Kelly, glad you enjoyed the recipe 🙂
Made this the other day and itis probably the best, most flavoursome curry I have ever had. The ingredients are nothing unusual but it packs a punch. Do yourself a favour and MAKE IT!
Thank you Anita! It's a total winner every time we make it at home too!
Savannah Rhodes says
Laura this dish was amazing! Probably the tastiest curry I've ever made!! With a side of basmati, it was truly incredible. Will def make again! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us!
Thank you Savannah!
I made this earlier this week and it was absolutely delicious
Thank you Stephanie 🙂
Nicky Raven says
Really enjoyed this recipe I added chickpeas, red peppers, broccoli and sweetcorn as that's what I had in at the time. Didn't have time to get the exact ingredients as it popped up on my Facebook feed early in the morning and it looked so delicious we just had to try it that day!? Thanks sixhungryfeet you're a real inspiration. Good luck on your journey!
Thank you Nicky! Really happy you enjoyed the recipe! It's absolutely delicious we just made it today as well!
I made the Thai Peanut Curry, and it was delicious!!! I’m looking forward to trying some of your other recipes!
Thank you Tonya!
My first vegan experience and so delicious!
I had mine with baby corn , broccoli and peppers I also added spinach.
I'll be making it again. ?
Thank you Ania! So happy you enjoyed eating plant-based!
Lauren Silber says
I'm going to be making this tomorrow night for my family and just want to make sure I'm understanding the recipe correctly...Do you add the ingredients in step #3 to lthe jug filled with the ingredients in step #2? And by "blend," you mean puree, right? Thanks, and can't wait to try this out!
Hello Laura, that's correct! Once you blend it, it will be quite liquidy. As you will cook it longer with the coconut milk, it will have the perfect consistency for serving and enjoying!
This was so good. Instructions were easy to follow. Turned out amazing.
Thank you Susan!
This was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making it again. I want to experiment using different veggies. Thanks so much for this recipe. ❤️?
Thank you Victoria!
I agree with this, curries are perfect for dinners! And Thai curry is one of my favorites. This recipe looks so good and I am so excited to try this. Thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you, let us know how it goes!
Made it with shrimps instead of Tofu and little chilli. It was great, thanks for the recipe. Greetings from Mexico City!
Thank you Pablo!
Made this tonight and it was so good! Loved it. The tofu marinade is just amazing. Used tenderstem broccoli and bok choy as the veg. Will def be making it again!
Thanks a lot Chantal! Great choice of green veggies!
Absolutely delicious! It was easy to make, FILLED with flavor, and an extremely comforting dish. I have made it a few times already. We really enjoyed it. Thanks!
That's amazing! Thank you Tyler 🙂
I made this recipe tonight for the first time and OMG! Sooooo gooooood!!!! Thank you. It was a hit!
Thank you Karolina!
Delicious!!! I used peanut butter but will add crushed peanuts as well next time. My non-vegan hubby LOVED this dinner!!! Win-win, thanks Six Hungry Feet!
Thank you Shannon!
This is going to be perfect for family dinners. I can't wait to try making this! I personally love curries, and this looks really delicious. Thank you so much for sharing this!
Thank you, I'm sure you will love it 🙂
Absolutely fantastic recipe! Very easy to follow, no bizarre difficult-to-find ingredients and tasted amazing and flavourful! Huge hit with my omni partner and I'm very excited for leftovers for tomorrow.
I made this for a potluck dinner I had with the family I nanny. I added broccoli, cauliflower and more carrots! It was such a hit it was so amazing! I'm completely obsessed with the homemade peanut sauce!
That's lovely to hear Cathryn!
Made this today with zucchini and eggplant. Really tasty. Thanks for the recipe!
Thank you Tanja 🙂
Sue Stirton says
I made the vegan curry with chicken and it was amazing. Last night I heated up mashed veggies and the left over sauce and it was an amazing easy dinner with no cooking. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
Thank you Sue!
Absolutely delicious! We ate it with rice when I made it and then the leftovers with rice noddles. I used broccoli and red peppers but green chili, I didn’t had red. It was far better then the ones I made before. Thank you
Thank you Erica!
This was yummy, healthy and so easy to make. My 2 young kids enjoyed it too (left out the chillies). Can’t wait to make it again. Thanks for the recipe!
Thank you Shreya!
Tobi of Vegan Sisters Eat says
This recipe is super easy to make and packs in a lot of traditional flavors. I made it with tofu, broccoli and various colored peppers. Next time I might try slices and sweet potato and bok choy. This will go on repeat in my dinner repertoire. Delicious!
Thankn you Tobi, your combination sounds delicious!
One of the most delicious recipes I've tried out!
Thank you Erin!
This dish was absolutely delicious! So flavorful and the combinations are endless. This time we made it with red bell pepper, broccoli, snap peas, and bok choy, served over white rice. Can't wait to make it again.
Wow Amber, this combination sounds delicious! Thank you 🙂
Omg! Love this recipe so much! I used broccoli and red bell pepper as my veggies. And I put brown rice noodles into the curry 5 minutes before it's done. Garnished with peanuts and lime. So delicious!
Definitely will make it again!
Thank you Kateryna, we love rice brown noodles and we will definitely try them on this dish next time!
Kristina Panova says
Thanks for the great recipe! I prepared it with broccolli and it was amazing. This was my first curry and now I am inspired to try with differrent vegetables.
That sounds lovely! thank you 🙂
I made this and it was really nice but there was so much of it I’ve put it in tubs to save. But wondering how long it will keep in the fridge or can it be frozen? This is my first time using tofu so not sure if freezing will ruin the tofu??
Hi Viki, you can freeze tofu! As well, you can keep it in the fridge for 4-5 days. Happy you enjoyed the curry 🙂
Going to make this tonight! I'm just trying to decide what veggies as I have so many and I'm worried about a weird combo. I have these adorable baby fairytale eggplant. But I also have shiitake mushrooms. I don't think those will go well together. So I think I'll stick to the mushroom, bell peppers, carrots. I do have some purslane I might sneak in. No tofu today but I have tempeh and I'm thinking of marinating that? We'll see!
That sounds good Cheryl! How was it?
A really good curry, very versatile. But I need to know, what word died you intend on the directions where you transfer everything into "a big jug?"
Hi Marko, the work "blender" was missing. Fixed now, thanks a lot! Happy you enjoyed the recipe 🙂
This was so delicious thank you!!
Thank you Emily!
This curry was perfect! I love Asian food and this recipe is soo good! I made it with carrot and broccoli ( the only veggies I had in a fridge :)) definitely will cook this curry again.
This is definitely being made in my house soon!
Con Aranda says
I’m having some friends over who are vegan, this will be the first vegan meal I prepare and am very excited to try. I am wondering though, what drink can I serve with this?
Hello! You could serve anything with the meal! If you want to go for something Asian-styled, maybe try with a fruit shake or a Thai Beer.
This is a lovely sweet and spicy recipe and the taste is excellent. My added vegetables were 2 small carrots, 1/2 small sweet green pepper, 1/2 small stick celery, 3 medium mushrooms. But with the metric version of the recipe advising 500ml stock + 400ml coconut milk, by the end of the recipe's suggested cooking time it was a very liquid runny soup. I then had to reduce it uncovered on a medium-high heat for about 30 minutes to get back to a thicker sauce. Next time, I think I would add a veggie stock cube with zero water + 400ml coconut milk. Any ideas what I did wrong?
Btw, Google says:
- 500ml is 16.9 US fl oz, recipe says 18 = ok
- 400ml is 13.5 US fl oz, recipe says 14 = ok
so the US / metric conversion is ok.
Not a criticism, but seeking advice. Your recipe has lovely flavours, I served it with plain al dente bismati rice, boiled with frozen green peas.
Hi Stuart, I guess it depends on the cooking temperature you are setting and the vegetables you are using. As well, some coconut milk is more liquid than others, maybe we are using a more creamy one if that makes sense. I hope you can find the perfect measures to your taste and thanks for your nice comments!
Loved this recipe, incredibly tasty but I added lime juice to my leftovers which I felt really lifted the dish! I managed to do a lot of the prep the day before so was a lot quicker when I went to cook it. Also managed to forget to buy chillies so just added chilli flakes which still worked well. Would 100% make this again!
Thank you Becca! Lime goes really good in many dishes 🙂
Loved the flavour of this dish and how easy it is to prepare and make! My only criticism was the tofu. I doubt it was the recipes fault, just my own.
I have only converted to vegetarian a few weeks ago and cooked tofu for the first time last week. I was expecting it to be a little crisper than it was but I think that was just the way I cooked it.
I added chilli flakes as I had no fresh chilli. 75% was coconut milk and 25% coconut cream. I added zucchini, snap peas and sweet potato.
I will 100% make again. Next time I think I will substitute tofu with chickpeas; use sweet potato, zucchini and baby corn as vegetables.
Another comment mentioned adding lime and it lifted it. I'll try squeezing some orange into it next time too, I found this lifted another dish to the next level, excited to try with this one.
Thankyou for posting.
Thank you Vanessa, glad you enjoyed the recipe! maybe next time, try to fry the tofu in a separate pan before adding it into the curry 🙂
Kelly Spear says
Loved it! I had cooked brown rice so I just through it in to simmer with it. Although I loved the presentation as you made it and adding cooked brown rice made it little more thick as it absorbed some liquid. This will be added to our repertoire. For vegetables I used broccoli, spinach and mushrooms. Soooo good 🙂 Now I really want to start playing with making my own curry pastes. As you said, they are much better. Thank you.
Thank you Kelly! homemade curry pastes are just another level!
Made this tonight and it was a bit! We’re saving this recipe to add into our regular circulation. I found it a bit mellow so we added some kafir lime leaves (we keep a stash in our freezer because you can only buy it as a bunch, but I only ever use a couple at a time, so freezing it allows us to get the most out of the bunch). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND adding the kafir lime leaves - it kicked this curry up a notch for sure. Thanks!
Thank you! Great to see some nice tips, kaffir lime leaves sounds like a great addition to this recipe, definitely will add that as an option!
Delicious and easy to make! I baked the tofu instead and loved how it turned out (25-30 mins at 400). I used carrots, zucchini, and bell pepper for the veggies. So creamy and full of flavor!!
Thank you Haley!
Sorry I accidentally hit the wrong email. I just wanted to make sure I got the answer to that question as far as if I can substitute something for the peanuts and the soy sauce?
Hi Olivia, you can subtitute soy sauce for dried shiitake mushroom stock (leave shiitake mushroom simmering in water for about 15 minutes and you will be left with a nice stock). About the peanut butter, maybe you can try using cashew or almond butter, im sure it will still be super tasty!
Esta receta es simplemente espectacular, está riquísima y siguiendo vuestras indicaciones salió a la perfección. ¡Muchísimas gracias por compartirla!
I’m anxious to try this but I avoid coconut milk because of the saturated fat. Can you recommend a substitute?
Hi Marianne, you could use soy cream or oat cream!
Lisa V says
I’m eating this curry as it cooks so there probably won’t be any left for my family. It is SO good. I used sugar snap peas, green peppers, and broccoli as my mixed veggies. Also I felt lazy and used my garam masala as a substitute for most of the seasonings since the flavor profile sounded pretty similar.
This recipe is definitely going to get made again and again. Thanks!
Thank you Lisa! So glad you liked it!
I’ve been cutting back on meat consumption for a while now and have been working to get my meat loving partner to as well for about the past year. Recipes like this have definitely helped and we definitely plan to add this to our list to make again! Flavors were great and we added broccoli, snow peas, red/green bell pepper, squash and carrots. I did run into the tofu issue of being too soft and not holding form. I will probably press it before I marinade and then fry or bake separately next time until the end. I was wondering in the photo what the leaf was — bay leaf or curry? I noticed star anise as well, but didn’t see it on the list. Thanks!
Delicious and easy. I added broccoli, edamame beans and red capsicum. I seared the tofu before adding it to the marinade so it a crispy shell.
Thank you! It sounds delicious! 🙂
Lynn Brown says
I happen to have Thai Kitchen Peanut Satay Sauce (4oz) on hand that I would like to use. However, I can't decide exactly what part of the curry sauce it replaces. I assume I still need the vege stock and the coconut milk but what else? Thank you for your help. I'm excited to try this recipe.
Hi Lynn, I would say add the Satay Sauce instead of the Peanut Butter, but I haven't tried this yet! Let us know how it goes 🙂
This is excellent, thank you!
Excited to make this! I don’t want to use tofu, just veggies, do you have advice on how to incorporate the paste into the dish? Thank you! Looks amazing!
Hi Michelle, you can add the ingredients directly to the pan or pot right before your veggies.
SO DELICIOUS!! I added bell pepper and broccoli. I made the sauce but added Mae ploy red curry paste instead of red chilies and it was soo flavorful. If you can get your hands on some mae ploy curry paste it is much better than Thai Kitchen in my opinion
Hi Maddie, thanks a lot! Need to try the Mae Ploy paste 🙂
Made this tonight and it is now my new favorite peanut curry... it's simply delicious!! I am bookmarking this recipe so I can make it on a regular basis and I can't wait to try some of your other recipes which also look great. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you Alison, so glad you liked it!
LOVED this recipe. I loaded it up with zucchini and cauliflower and turned up the heat a bit, but it was so easy and tasted amazing. Thanks for the recipe!
Thank you Kim! 🙂
My husband's "new favorite"! So amazing and flavorful. I used a mixture of peanuts and cashews and added a 1/4 cup of raw cashew pieces at the end of the recipe (towards the last half of the simmering time) to give it a nice crunch. Thanks for creating such a tasty vegan friendly dish!
Thank you Ashley, cashews are such a great idea to add to this dish!
I really hoped to enjoy this, the final picture shows crispy tofu on the top so I cooked this separately as the soggy tofu in the other picture didn't look too appetising. Problem is that with the coating of ground spices, the tofu doesn't get a chance to crisp up without first burning those spices. So I still ended up with soggy tofu, and even though I ended up mixing it in, the flavour profile of this didn't go well with the coconut curry sauce, which in itself was nothing ground breaking. I wouldn't normally post a bad review but I was kind of astounded by the number of positive reviews, perhaps these people have never tried Thai food before. Sorry.
Hi Annette, I am really sorry that it didn't go as planned. This recipe tries to bring Thai flavors with simple ingredients that most people already have at home. The tofu gets marinated not just with spices but soy sauce too. If you cook it at medium-low temperature, the spices won't burn and your tofu will cook nicely. If you want extra crispy tofu, You will need to deep fry it and simply add the marinade ingredients when adding the veggies. Thanks for your comment!
Made this yesterday, it was delicious! I changed the tofu for champignons as I'm not a fan of tofu, and added cauliflower, red bell pepper and carrot, and made it with 2/3 peanut butter and 1/3 tahini (light). Yummy!
That sounds like a delicious modification. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
I’m wanting to make this but I don’t see anything about the noodles in the recipe or in the notes? Am I missing something? The photo doesn’t seem to be the same as the recipe.
Are they just regular Mr noodles noodles? What are they? When do we add them? What else can we put in this?
It might be flavorful but the recipe is incomplete
Hi Talia, This recipe is served with rice. Maybe you are referring to another recipe? Thank you.
This was fantastic! I added a little extra spice to the sauce for my partner and I; it was so delicious, and easy to make
Thank you Zoja 🙂
Craig simon says
This sounds really good. But the nutrition said 795 kcal? That does not seem correct.
Hello, thanks for letting me know, as I recalculated the Nutritional information and something was not right. It's fixed now! thank you 🙂
My family just loved this. It was delicious. Winner winner!!
Thank you Nichola!
