Black Rice Noodle Coconut Curry Tofu Stirfry

Bet ‘ya can’t say that three times fast ;p

I love a good stifry. But sometimes I get in ruts, making the same kind of stirfry, with the same veggies and grains. I recently came across some super cool looking black rice spaghetti noodles and thought they would be the perfect addition to shake things up a bit. This is very versatile though and can be made with regular noodles, or rice, quinoa – whatever you have on hand and want to use.

Black Rice Noodle Coconut Curry Tofu Stirfry (serves 2 hungry people)
2 servings of black rice noodles (cook according to package directions)
1 8 oz. package of tofu, cubed, lightly tossed in melted coconut oil and baked 15 minutes
1 large carrot, thinly sliced
1 cup of snap peas, trimmed
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1 red pepper, roughly chopped
1 medium tomato, roughly choppd
a generous handful of cilantro, roughly chopped

Coconut Curry Sauce
1 cup of full fat coconut milk
1 tbsp of curry powder
1 tbsp of chickpea flour
1 tsp of garam masala
1 tsp of coriander
sea salt & pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 and start boiling the water for your noodles. Lightly toss your tofu in 1 teaspoon of melted coconut oil and bake for 15 minutes while your noodles cook.
Heat a wok on medium heat on your stove. Add the carrot and sautée for 5-7 minutes, until it begins to soften. Add the snap peas & zucchini and cook for another couple of minutes. Add the pepper, tomato and the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and add the chickpea flour and spices. Allow this to simmer until most of the liquid has cooked off.

It makes a nice, mid-week meal as it’s pretty quick to throw together. Enjoy!

  1. Yum, this looks really good! I recently made some black bean spaghetti which was really fun. Not only the colour, but the taste and texture was really nice as well. And so filling!

  2. There was a package of black rice noodles in our apartment when we arrived. I really enjoyed it! Sadly it’s pretty pricey here :/

  3. How cool are those black rice noodles! This stirfry looks amazing, I bet it tasted awesome with the garam masala too…that is my favourite spice mix, I love adding it to all sorts of dinners haha 😀

  4. This looks awesome! Tofu and coconut are two of my faves (as you might have guessed from my recipes!) and those black noodles are really cool, I’m going to have an eye out for some now so I can try this :)
