Vegan Khow Suey Recipe

Vegan Khow Suey

Hi, friends! I veganized Burmese Khow Suey for dinner and it was awesome.

Khow Suey is a spiced noodle soup with a delicious coconutty flavor (if you don’t like dishes with an overpowering taste of coconut milk in them, don’t worry – this is super mild).

Perfect as a full-meal idea as it’s full of carbs, protein, and fats.

I made the soup extra spicy by adding chili oil at the end. Squeeze fresh lime/lemon wedges right before serving and you’re in for something special.

Let’s go!

  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 2 green chilies
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kashmiri red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 1 medium carrot (chopped)
  • 1 large bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green beans
  • 150 gm. (5.2 oz.) firm tofu (cut into cubes)
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
  • Fried onions (to garnish)
  • Toasted and chopped peanuts (to garnish)
  • Chili oil (to garnish)
  • Lime wedges (to garnish)
  • Boiled noodles (I used whole wheat noodles - you can use any vegan noodle of your choice)


  • Add garlic + ginger + green chilies + black peppercorns + salt in a mortar & pestle. Crush and grind them into a fine paste. Set aside.
  • Set a large saute pan / cooking pot over medium heat. Add olive oil.
  • Once it's hot, add the garlic-ginger-chilies paste we made earlier.
  • Stir-saute for 3-4 minutes, or until they're fragrant.
  • Add turmeric powder + Kashmiri red chili powder + coriander powder and stir-saute for 1 minute.
  • Next, add chopped onion + carrot + bell pepper + green beans. Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the veggies start to soften.
  • Add tofu + veggie stock + coconut milk + soy sauce + brown sugar. Stir and mix well. Turn up the heat to high and bring it to a boil.
  • Turn down the heat to medium and let it simmer. Cover the pan/pot and continue to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • *After 10 minutes* Uncover the pan/pot and add freshly chopped green onions + cilantro. Turn off the heat and give everything a quick stir.
  • Using a ladle, pour this 'soup' over cooked noodles. Garnish with fried onions + toasted and chopped peanuts + chili oil + lime wedges.
  • Vegan Khow Suey is ready. Enjoy!

  1. Hello Neelam! Is there a way to buy a signed print copy of your book? I also have the link to Amazon. XX, Molly

      Hi Molly. I’m humbled you’re asking for a signed copy ????, but I really haven’t had anyone make a similar request before…and I’m not sure how to make that happen (I’m just a small recipe creator from India and the cookbook is actually self-published print-on-demand book handled by Amazon USA). But thank you so much for such an amazing request. It really means a lot!
