Curated by Keir (Lead Guide)


100g noodles

¼ cup of peas (optional)

½ tsp Vegetable flavour Better than Bouillon

½ tbsp curry powder


Prep Time: 5 - 10 minutes depending on optional ingredients

Cook Time: 5 minutes


1 large serving or 2 small


Would store well in a container in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 days


Boil. Heat approx one litre of water in a saucepan on the stove-top, once it comes to a rolling boil, add the noodles. Cook the noodles for 3 minutes, or until the noodles reach desired texture, if you are adding the peas, add them in the final minute of cooking.

Mix. In a separate vessel (I use a ramekin) dissolve the Better than Bouillon in approx ¼ cup of water taken from the boiling pot, and stir in the curry powder.

Drain, and Combine. Completely drain the water from the noodles (option to save the stock water and re-add later), then stir in the curry stock mix.

Notes: You can definitely add to this recipe by including carrot, mushrooms (like shiitake), green onions, tofu pieces, roast chicken pieces etc... the opportunities are endless.

This delicious recipe is already 100% plant-based depending on your choice of stock and added extras. We recommend Better Than Bouillon's No Beef or No Chicken bouillon if you're looking for a particular meat flavour, otherwise any vegetable flavoured stock.
Look for noodles that don't contain egg. Tuf Brand Stir Fry Chow Mein noodles (found at Creekside Market, Whistler) contain just three simple ingredients- wheat flour, water and salt.
To reduce your reliance on plastic for this meal, you can buy the plain noodles in bulk packets like Tuf Brand Stir Fry Chow Mein noodles from Creekside Market, which come in 400 gram packets. That's the equivalent of buying 8 individual instant noodle packs which each would come with other sachets inside which makes for a lot of waste!
If adding vegetables such as carrot, mushroom, green onions and other vegetables you can opt for unwrapped and plastic-free fresh vegetables from markets, CSA programs and even some supermarkets.
Support your local farmers by looking to your local Farmers' Market and stockists of locally farmed vegetables and products.

Another great way to ensure you're using seasonal produce is to subscribe to a CSA Box with a local farm and structure your meals around the seasonal produce you've received that week!
