These tofu mushroom curry noodles keep well, but they will thicken up over time as the noodles soak up the liquid. You can either just add more water or stock when you reheat, or alternatively just skip the step where you cook the noodles and just prepare the rest of the soup. Then you can just cook the noodles as you reheat the soup each time. If I know I’m going to be having it as leftovers I keep the tofu separate as well and reheat it in a pan so it stay crispy, but it’s delicious either way!
