Accepted Answer

Answer for MacOS and Meteor > v1.1

The node binary resides in the dev_bundle of the meteor-tool:

~/.meteor/packages/meteor-tool/1.1.3/mt-os.osx.x86_64/dev_bundle/bin

$ cd ~/.meteor/packages/meteor-tool/1.1.3/mt-os.osx.x86_64/dev_bundle/bin
$ ./node -v
v0.10.36

Note: The meteor-tool version does not match the version of Meteor, but in 99% of the cases you can assume that the latest version is used for your current Meteor.

At least in Meteor >= 1.5 you can also directly access the NodeJS bundled with Meteor and find out the version:

meteor node -v

I just typed meteor node -v while in a meteor application and got v0.10.43 back on the CLI.

When I just type node -v I get v5.5.0 as a return value.
