Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

With the evenings now crisp and the promise of winter in the air, soup is on the menu. This Thai-inspired soup is full of flavour and freshness and is perfect to ward off the tickle you think you feel in your throat.

This recipe yields two small serves or one mammoth serve – I am still suffering the consequences of eating it all. So. Very. Full.

  • splash of olive oil
  • 1 long red chilli, cut finely
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 500mL chicken stock

  • juice of one lime
  • tablespoon fish sauce
  • bok choy leaves

  3. Add in the ginger, noodles, lime juice, fish sauce and bok choy and simmer for another 3 or so minutes.
