  • 4 oz bean thread noodles
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 14–15 oz can light coconut milk
  • 1 15 oz can baby corn, drained (cut in half if you'd like)
  • 1 cup snow peas trimmed
  • 1 medium zucchini cut into eighths lengthwise, then into 2-inch strips
  • 1 medium red bell pepper cut into narrow 2-inch strips
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms optional
  • 3 scallions cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 2 tsp good-quality curry powder
  • Sriracha or other hot sauce to taste
  • salt to taste


  • Cover the noodles with boiling water in a heatproof container. Cover and let stand for 6 to 8 minutes, or according to package directions, until al dente.
  • Drain the noodles, rinse briefly with cool water, then use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut here and there into shorter lengths.
  • While the noodles are soaking, heat the oil in a stir-fry pan. Add the garlic and sauté over medium-low heat until golden.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except salt; bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat and simmer gently for 3 minutes.
  • Add the cooked noodles and season with salt. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes, until the noodles have absorbed much of the coconut milk, then serve.
