Thai Curried Noodles with Tofu

I saw this in an old issue of Vegetarian Times last week and figured my son would LOVE it.  He loves spicy and he loves tofu so it seemed the perfect fit.  I was right, the only complaint that he had was that it "needed a little more spice!"  It was super quick and easy to make so it was perfect for after our long day spent at the Grand Beach <3

Thai Curried Noodles with Tofu and Broccoli
1/2 box of fettuccine noodles, cooked according to package instructions
2 diced shallots
2 cloves minced garlic
1 inch grated ginger
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tbsp curry paste
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1-15 oz can coconut milk
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1 package of tofu, drained and dry fried
4 cups chopped lightly steamed broccoli
