Instructions

Turkey Meatballs

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking pan with parchment paper or baking mat.

Noodles and Curry Soup

  • Remove veggies from salted water with a slotted spoon. Set aside.
  • Remove pan with water from heat and use to cook rice noodles according to package directions.
  • To make soup broth, heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add garlic and ginger powder and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Then add the remaining 6 ingredients. Whisk together well. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • To serve, place noodles in bowl. Pour curry broth over noodles. Top with veggies and meatballs. May also top with peanuts, cilantro, and lime juice if desired.
