Vegan MoFo Day #6 

Here is a quick meal idea for a busy Monday. I threw this together for a late breakfast (yes, I’m weird) a few days ago as a let’s-use-up-what’s-in-the-fridge kinda meal and ended up marveling over it’s deliciousness. I am now obsessed with garam masala and putting it in everything. You have been warned.

Saucy Garam Masala Noodles


  • 2 servings of noodles shells are totally the best, but use what you like ;- )
  • whatever veggies you want I used broccoli , red onion and red pepper
  • 2-3 Tbsp. margarine
  • 1 clove garlic shopped
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala or more, but start with that
  • 2-3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice optional
  • salt pepper and red chili flakes, to taste


  • Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan and add the noodles, a pinch of salt and a squirt of oil.
  • While the noodles are cooking, chop your veggies.
  • Cook noodles until almost ready, then throw in the broccoli, if using.
  • When that's done, strain and set aside in a bowl.
  • Take the same now empty saucepan, put back on the heat and add the margarine, other veggies and garlic.
  • Cover and simmer until the veggies are cooked or as soft as you want.
  • Remove from heat, add the garam masala, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt, pepper and chili flakes.
  • Stir together, then add the noodles and stir to combine.
  • Put back on the heat to warm everything up, then pour back into the bowl.
  • Eat.

Easy peasy, that took less than 15 minutes all together!

Seriously…it may sound weird, but the garam masala and margarine combination is SO GOOD.

What’s your secret noodle ingredient?!
