  • 4 spring onions (scallions) roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 red chilis deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger chopped
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1000 ml (4 cups) vegetable stock/broth
  • 1 can coconut milk (400ml/15oz can)
  • 100 g (1 cup) bean sprouts
  • 10 baby corn halved
  • 100 g (1 cup) mangetout beans

To serve

  • 150 g (5 oz) rice noodles
  • 1 lime
  • handful cilantro/coriander


  • Add the spring onions, garlic, chilli, ginger and turmeric to a mini food processor and whiz until it forms a rough paste.
  • In a large pot over a medium heat, add the oil and spice paste and fry, stirring, for 3 minutes. 
  • Add the stock and coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce the temperature to low and add the bean sprouts, baby corn and mangetout. Cook for 5 minutes.
