Course: soup

Cuisine: Vegan, Asian

Servings: 4



🌱250 g black rice noodles

🌱1 onion

🌱1 L Veggie stock

🌱200 ml coconut milk

🌱1 Tbsp curry

🌱1 Tbsp turmeric

🌱3 kaffir lime leaves

🌱1 bell pepper

🌱250 g smoked tofu

🌱300 g pineapple

🌱1 bunch of asparagus

🌱To serve: 1 scallion stick & fresh coriander

🌱Salt and pepper to taste

🌱Olive oil for cooking

How to prepare:

  1. Start with the soup base: in a medium pot, cook the chopped onion in olive oil for 2-3 minutes
  2. Then, add the turmeric and curcuma powder and mix well
  3. Add the veggie stock and let the soup boil for a few minutes
  4. Blend the soup, add the kaffir lime leaves, salt to taste and let it boil under the lid for 15-20 more minutes.
  5. In the meantime, boil the noodles in salty water (boil time according to the package label) and cook the veggies separately:
  • cut the asparagus into long, thin strips and cook it with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. When it is done, set it aside on a platter
  • do the same with the bell pepper
  • then, cook the cubbed smoked tofu in a splash of olive oil until golden brown
  • lastly cook the pineapple bits until golden-brown
  1. When the noodles have finished boiling, drain them and add some cold water over them. They are usually really sticky and the cold water will allow you to handle them more easily.
  2. Now for the best part: the assembly! If you want to do it the classic way, place the noodle first on the soup plate. Then, add the cooked veggies, the smoked tofu and pineapple. Now pour some of the soup on top of them all, sprinkle some green onion bits and some fresh coriander. There it is: your fantastic meal is ready!
