Curries are warm and comforting meals. Shrimp curry served over soba (or buckwheat) noodles is a flavorful meal that comes together in a flash! This curry is packed with protein from shrimp, nutrients from all the vegetables, and grains from the soba noodles. One great thing about this recipe is that you can switch out vegetables for whichever ones you have on hand. And for the mixed vegetables, you can grab one from the freezer section with your favorite combination.

We hear a lot about people not wanting to consume too much shrimp, due to their cholesterol content. However, this does not necessarily mean that it negatively impacts your blood cholesterol, especially when consumed in moderation. Just like any food, you probably don’t want to have it every day, for every meal anyways.

This meal comes together super quickly, too! This recipe serves two people, however it’s super easy to scale it up for a whole family meal, or scale it down just for yourself.
