Hi there, Ameera here!
Thai Curry Cabbage Noodle Stir Fry, noodley goodness that had us jumping for joy all around the kitchen. If you loved our Asian Cabbage Noodle Stir Fry, then you are going to love this one too! It so tasty and completely delicious!
Tips for Success:
- Pasta Amount: The key here is what type of noodles you use. If you use very thin Asian brown rice noodles, then do not go over 6 ounces. If you use thin spaghetti, then don’t go over 8 ounces. The noodles really drink up the sauce. If you use more than the recommended amount, you could end up with a dry dish.
- Thinly Sliced Cabbage: We used about ½ head of a medium cabbage. We sliced the cabbage by cutting it into very thin long strips. You can use a slaw mix, but the experience is a little different. There is just something about those thin long strips of cabbage mixed in with the thin spaghetti that really works. Make sure you pick out any tough pieces and thicker veins.
- Cabbage tenderness: Cutting the cabbage into thin strips allows the cabbage to cook faster. We enjoyed a tender crisp cabbage. If you do not like cabbage with a tiny hint of crunch to it, then this recipe is not for you. Placing the lid on the pan when you add the sliced cabbage along with the vegetable broth enhances the cooking process.
- Stir Fry Veggies: You can pretty much use just about any stir fry veggies that you enjoy.
- Frozen Veggies versus Fresh Veggies: You can use either frozen or fresh. If using fresh, make sure the veggies reach the desired tenderness in Step 4 before adding the sauce. We used frozen for convenience.
- Optional Add-In Veggies: You can also add peas, edamame, mushrooms, chickpeas, etc. if you wish. Just don’t add too much or the sauce will not be able to effectively cover all the ingredients.
Leftovers and Freezing:
Leftovers will generally keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Store in a covered container. Reheating can be done on the stovetop, or in the microwave.
This dish can be frozen; however, it is best served immediately after making. If frozen, for best results, thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
Pantry Products Used:
- Tamari: We used San J Tamari Soy Sauce, Gluten Free, Reduced Sodium. You can substitute the tamari with reduced sodium soy sauce, Braggs Liquid Aminos, or Braggs Coconut Liquid Aminos.
- Broccoli Stir-Fry: We used Birds Eye Broccoli Stir-Fry which consists of broccoli, carrots, onions, mushrooms, red peppers, water chestnuts and celery.
- Chili Garlic Sauce: We used Huy Fong Foods Chili Garlic Sauce. This brand does have a small amount of sugar. However, this brand is generally accepted by the WFPB community.
- Red Curry Paste: We used Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste.
Kitchen Products Used:
- Large ceramic/enamel lined Dutch oven, skillet, or similar large stock pot (tight fitting lid is optional)
- Stock pot to boil the pasta
We certainly hope you give this deliciousness a try.

So good! This is an awesome recipe-turned out fantastic. I may use less maple syrup next time just as a personal preference. Also, I might try coconut milk in place of the veggie broth for extra richness just to see. Thanks for a great option to put in the rotation! Cilantro would be a nice topping as well as sriracha. Yum!
