This chicken noodle soup is one of the quickest easiest suppers to prepare. It’s so filling and keeps great for a couple of days in the fridge. For a vegetarian version, just exclude the chicken and substitute the chicken stock for vegetable stock. In relation to the optional ingredients, its good to put them in but is not the end of the world if you don’t have them. Tesco sell the kaffir lime leaves and because they’re dried the one box lasts for ages. The fish sauce really does make a difference again I know Tesco sell it. Also if you want a low fat version just use the reduced fat coconut milk. If when the next day you go to reheat it, some times the noodles absorb the liquid, don’t worry just add in some milk or water and it’ll be perfect. Enjoy and let me know what you think. As usual any questions – just ask !! Next time its white chocolate and raspberry muffins…
