Spice paste
  • 25 g ginger peeled
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 red chillies seeds included
  • 2 stalks lemongrass
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • Splash vegetable oil
  • 1-2 onions finely diced (or use 4 shallots)
  • 130 g mushrooms eg shitake or any of your choice
  • 500 ml vegan stock
  • 200 g spinach
  • 400 ml tinned coconut milk
  • 200 g noodles we used soba
  • 100 g deep fried tofu puffs halved
  • Fresh coriander
  • Squeeze fresh lime juice optional
  • Sprinkling of crispy fried onions optional


  • Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packet, drain and set aside.
  • Blend the spice paste in a high speed blender or food processor.
  • In a large saucepan or wok, fry the spice blend for a few minutes then add the onion and mushrooms.
  • Stir through and heat for a further few minutes.
  • Add the stock and coconut milk, bring to the boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add the spinach, tofu and the noodles and simmer for a further minute.
  • Remove from the heat (do not drain — it’s supposed to be a slightly soupy dish) and serve with fresh coriander and a squeeze of lime juice.
