Yummy Veggie Laksa

I made this soup the other night and it is yummy and easy to make!  Plus there is a lot of room to adjust ingredients for your taste.  This recipe and image  is from Zen Family Habits. Enjoy!

veggie laksa
serves 3


  • 3/4lb  fresh Singapore noodles (see note below)*
  • 2oz  Laksa paste or other Thai curry paste
  • 1 large can (1 1/2 cups) coconut cream
  • 2 cups mixed chopped vegetables (see note below)**
  • handful fresh basil leaves

*Can use singapore noodles, hokkien noodles, or rice noodles. (I used dried rice noodles)

**mixed chopped vegetables used were carrots, a zucchini and a red pepper, all cut into little batons. I tweaked this part by skipping the carrot, and adding 1/4 of an onion.  I also added 1 package of firm tofu, but feel free to add  shrimp or chicken.


1. For fresh noodles, place in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow to stand for 1 minute then massage to loosen into individual strands. Drain.  I couldn’t find fresh noodles so I cooked dried noodles by following the direction on the box. Drain.

2. Meanwhile heat 2 tablespoons of peanut or other vegetable oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add curry paste and stir fry for 30 seconds. Quickly add coconut cream and 2 cups boiling water. Bring to the boil and add vegetables. Simmer for 2 minutes or until vegetables are cooked to your liking.

3. To serve, divide noodles between 3 bowls. Pour over soup and vegetables and top with basil leaves.

  1. This was fabulous. I have never made anything Thai before. I was so nervous. The flavors were amazing. Rich and delicate at the same time. I did make a few changes. I used veggie broth instead of water, used shredded carrots, and added very thinly sliced onion. I also added a heaping teaspoon of dried basil instead of fresh. I had fresh, I just thought dried would infuse better. It was fast too. I love good food and this really put me beside myself.
