Coconut-Coriander Noodle Jars (Vegan) Coconut-Coriander Noodle Jars (Vegan)

A vibrant coriander paste, fresh with ginger and peas, is used to flavour the broth in these homemade instant noodle jars. With thin rice noodles, fresh veggies and coconut butter – this is a lunch that’s packed with flavour and only takes 3 minutes to cook! I’ve included tempeh, fried simply in coconut oil and soy sauce, but feel free to swap in your favourite protein source (tofu, chickpeas, vegan ‘chicken’ pieces) instead if you prefer.

  • 1

    Blend all the coconut coriander paste ingredients until smooth – you can do this in a jug with a hand blender or in a food processor/blender.

  • 2

    Add the baby corn to a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium heat with 100ml water – cover with a lid and leave to steam for 4 minutes until tender. Remove the corn from the pan and set aside. Pour any excess water out of the pan, wipe dry and return it to the heat.

  • 3

    Cut the tempeh into 1cm cubes. Heat the coconut oil in the same frying pan as before over a high heat. Add the tempeh cubes and fry, stirring occasionally, until they’re starting to turn golden. Pour in the soy sauce and stir to coat the tempeh then remove from the heat.

  • 4

    To assemble the jars, add ¼ of the paste to the bottom of 4 medium heat proof glass jars. Add a nest of rice noodles, ¼ of the corn, tempeh cubes, mangetout, edamame and carrots. Cover with the lid and keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

  • 5

    When you’re ready to eat: Pour 250ml boiling water into the jar, making sure the noodles are submerged. Cover with the lid and set aside for 3-5 minutes (or according to the time on the rice noodle packet). Uncover and stir to combine everything then eat (or pour into a large bowl and serve).
