Description

I love Noodles and Co, and I really love Thai food. It’s so fresh and exotic. I came home one night after two bowls at the restaurant thinking there’s got to be a way to make this stuff. Here’s my go at it. My brainchild of that night.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces, weight Rice Noodles (If They're Hard To Find, Buy The Box Of Pad Thai And Only Use The Noodles)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Lemon Grass ( If You Can't Find It, Don't Sweat It, Just Add Two More Tablespoons Lime Juice!)
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Fresh(or Ground Powder) Ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Red Curry Paste
  • 6 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon White Sugar
  • 1 can (14 Oz. Size) Reduced Fat Coconut Milk
  • ½ cups Peeled And Deveined Shrimp ( Can Substitute Chicken)
  • 4 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
  • ¼ cups Snipped Cilantro
  • ½ cups Fresh Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1 bag Baby Spinach Leaves, 6 Ounce Bag

Preparation

Heat oil in saucepan. Stir in garlic, lemon grass and ginger until aromatic — about 1 minute. Add the curry paste and stir. Pour in 1/2 of the chicken broth and stir until curry paste is dissolved. Pour in the rest of the broth along with soy sauce and sugar. Let it simmer for 20 minutes, covered to let the flavors meld.

Stir in the noodles, coconut milk, shrimp, and lime juice. Cook until shrimp is pink and done. Stir in cilantro, mushrooms and spinach until softened. Ladle into bowls and serve with eggrolls or rice. Yum!

Great tasting soup, almost dead on Noodles & Co. I added the red onions and red cabbage as another mentioned on here and it was almost spot on. Only thing missing was that little bit of heat at the end of each bite. Added a little extra red curry paste and still didn’t get the “kick,” but delicious none the less. Will try and add a little Thai Dragon pepper next time for some bite!

This soup was delicious with a few additions. I didn’t have lemongrass, so I left it out and used the juice of 3 limes and it was perfect. At the very end I added sliced red cabbage, red onions and 1 roma tomato like the original Noodles & Company soup. Next time I’m going to make sure to add the spinach after I take the soup off from the heat because it shrivels up pretty quick and I like it real fresh.

This was amazing! So easy and so tasty. We don’t live near a Noodles anymore and this was my favorite soup. Thank you for posting! We will definitely be making this again… and again and again.
