A fragrant, spicy soup , which is quick and easy to prepare. Perfect for a midweek meal. You can you use all sorts of different vegetables too.
First, chop up all the veggies because the cooking takes only 15-20 minutes so you can’t prepare the ingredients as you go. So grate the ginger, mince the garlic, chop the vegetables. Separate the green, leafy pieces of the pak choi from the stalk pieces as the leaves are going into the soup only at the end. Prepare the stock.
Take a large casserole dish or soup pot and add the olive oil, the garlic, the ginger and the curry paste and on low heat simmer them together for two minutes until they are fragrant.
Add the sweet potato cubes, the broccoli, and any other veg you use. Add the pak choi stalks and simmer for another minute or two before adding the stock. Turn the heat up to medium, cover with a lid and bring the soup to boil. After about 10 minutes, all the veggies should be tender.
At this point, add the leafy pieces of the pak choi, half of the coriander and the coconut milk. Turn the heat down to slow and cook without the lid for another 3 minutes. During this time, remove the Konjac noodles from the packaging and rinse them with warm water. In the microwave, heat it for 2 minutes.
Serve it immediately ladling the soup into bowls. Tip the noodles in, sprinkle with fresh coriander, the sliced red onion and some extra chilli slices if you like it hot. Juice a quarter of like over the bowl.
