Wash produce before use


Cook the rice noodles

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water, then return to the pot and set aside. While the water is heating and the noodles are cooking, start preparing the rest of the meal.


Prep the bok choy; start the curry

  • Trim the root end from the bok choy; cut the bok choy in half lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise, keeping the light and dark green parts separate.

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the panang curry paste and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the cashew butter, 1¼ cups [2½ cups] water, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] sugar (from your pantry), if using. Season with salt and pepper and stir until incorporated. 

Add the yuba noodles and light parts of the bok choy and bring to a boil, then reduce a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the bok choy starts to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.


Finish the curry

To the pan with the yuba noodles, add the rice noodles, carrots, and dark green parts of the bok choy. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice noodles are heated through and the carrots and bok choy start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the curry to individual bowls, garnish with the sesame seeds, and serve.
