Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Cooking Time 20 min


  • Cooking oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp medium gluten-free curry powder
  • 396g pack firm tofu, drained and cut into chunks
  • 400g can light coconut milk (we used East End)

  • 1 tbsp cornflour 
  • 500g frozen mixed vegetables 
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh coriander, plus extra to garnish

  • Lime wedges, to serve


  1. Spray a frying pan that has a lid with oil and set over a medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened and lightly golden.
  2. Stir in the curry powder and cook for a further 2 min. Add the tofu, toss to coat in the spicy onions, then cook for 2 min.
  3. Add the coconut milk and chickpeas to the pan and cover, then simmer for 5 min. Mix the cornflour with a little of the sauce to make a paste, then stir into the pan. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Add the mixed vegetables and coriander and cook for a final 5 min, stirring occasionally.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the pack instructions.
  6. To serve, divide the noodles and curry among 4 bowls. Sprinkle with extra coriander and serve with lime wedges to squeeze over.
