Melissa’s Modifications:
This easy-to-make Curry Noodle Bowl can have added vegetables such as sliced broccoli or even thinly sliced green beans. 
Adding extra protein to the bowl such as tofu, shrimp or chicken take this to a whole other level of deliciousness. Each of these proteins can be added directly to the bowl  and cooked in the broth. 
  • Shrimp takes 2-4 minutes to cook, until opaque and pink.
  • Chicken strips takes 20-30 minutes to fully cook in the broth.
  • For tofu cubes, if you use a firm block, press all the excess liquid out of it with a kitchen towel, then dice to the size pieces you want in your broth, then add to the broth. Cooks in 5-8 minutes.
