Deliver Ingredients


  • 1 package shirataki spaghetti noodles, such as Nasoya Pasta Zero
  • 8 fresh Thai chiles
  • 8 stalks scallions, chopped, green and white parts separated
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 4 Tablespoons hot sesame oil
  • 4 Cups reduced sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 Tablespoons red curry paste
  • 15 leaves fresh Chinese basil or Italian basil, chopped
  • ½ thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps
  • Soy sauce


Preheat the broiler.

Prepare the noodles according to package directions and set aside.

Place the chiles onto foil and coat with 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil. Close foil loosely and broil until soft, about 10 minutes.

In a pot, bring the broth to a boil. Add the green parts of the scallions and half of the garlic to the broth. Keep at a simmer.

Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons sesame oil in a wok or large cast-iron sauté pan to medium-high heat. Remove the stems of chiles and place into the pan with the remaining garlic, the curry paste, and the white parts of the scallions, basil, and mushrooms. Sauté for 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the noodles and sauté for 3 more minutes, adding soy sauce to taste. Place the contents of the wok into four bowls. Ladle 2 scoops of the broth into each bowl. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve.

Noodle Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Noodle Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
