You’re going to love this rich and creamy Thai Noodle Soup with tofu and eggplant. A hearty and delicious Thai soup for the perfect vegan and gluten-free meal. Made in just 30 minutes!
Start by preparing the vegetables
Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the tofu in the hot oil and pan-fry for 3-5 minutes, until tofu is brown on all sides. Remove from heat and set aside.
Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute for 3-5 minutes, until the onions are translucent and fragrant. Stir in the ginger and sauté for an additional minute. Add the bell pepper and eggplant and continue to sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes until eggplant begins to brown.
Stir in the red curry paste until the vegetables are fully coated. Add the tofu, vegetable broth, and coconut milk to the soup pot. Bring soup to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Add brown rice noodles and continue to cook the soup until the noodles are tender, about an additional 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add lime juice, salt, cilantro, and basil.
Serve immediately with extra lime wedges.
You can store leftover curry soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. To eat leftovers, gently reheat the stir fry over the stove or in the microwave.
