Oh my, its cold outside. To combat this there are lots of soups going on in our house at the moment. Over the weekend I made this on Saturday and Sunday night as it was so delicious and both time required us to take of a jumper as it had warmed us so well.
200g fresh rice noodles
1/2 can coconut milk
200g chicken breast sliced into this strips
2 tsp oil
fresh baby sweet corn, halved
1 onion thinly sliced
1 pack of mange tout, halved
Half a courgette, thinly sliced
2 tblsp Red Thai Curry paste
600ml chicken stock
1 red fresh chilli, sliced for garnish if desired.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the chicken, add the onion and continue for a few minutes until translucent. Tip in the mange tout, courgette & baby corn and stir in the curry paste.
Add the stock and coconut milk then bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Tip in the noodles and heat through for another few minutes.
Dish out into two bowls and sprinkle with the chilli.
Such a warming dish, you can make it as hot or mild as you like. Next time I will use half fat coconut milk and jumbo prawns to reduce the pro points value and maybe decide on a totally veggie version with carrots and other veg added, really this is so versatile.
Welcome to my cooking diary. I am a fairly good cook willing to try most things, I hope to continue to expand my repertoire and cook healthy (ish) dishes. I use this blog as a aide memoire so I don't forget what I have cooked!
