Green Curry Noodle Bowl with Poached Egg and Spinach | Naturally Ella

It's no secret that I love a good noodle bowl, especially when it's topped with an egg. However, I realized I've never shared one of my favorite ways to eat noodles: bathed in a delicious broth. These noodles get help from my favorite green curry sauce (where you've seen in this potato curry and this green bean curry). Best of all, if you prep the curry sauce ahead of time, these noodles are a perfect 15-minute meal. Plus, if you're feeling like you want to make everything from scratch, a homemade green curry paste is the perfect addition.

Curry Noodle Bowl


Greens: swap out the spinach for chard, kale, or collards. For any other variety, you may need to cook the greens for a bit longer to ensure they aren't overly crisp.

Heat level: Add red chili flakes to the curry base or do as I did and the top the bowl with a sprinkle of chili flakes.

Noodles: swap out the udon noodles for your favorite noodle. If you're looking to make this meal gluten-free, swap out the udon noodles for brown rice noodles or your favorite veg noodle.
