Thai-inspired chicken soup


Well, I looked at my garden this morning and thought, “what exotic lunch could I make with you?” The answer that I came up with as Thai-inspired soup.

Thai-Inspired Chicken Soup

From the garden:  Lemon grass, capsicum, chili, spinach, spring onion, young celery, chives and coriander. Other ingredients:  cooked chicken, noodles, white onion, water, mystery-Asian stock cube, palm sugar, shrimp paste, fish sauce and mushrooms.

The time (all 5 minutes of it) was in the chopping of the vege and bringing the pot to boil. If you are like me and a bit unsure of how to prepare fresh lemon grass, watch this great vid.

Hot, sweet, sour and spicy! Delicious and great food for the soul!

  1. Sounds very exotic! I’m making chicken veg soup tomorrow since it’s going to be a rainy cool day here in Canada.
    Thanks for visiting my blog. Come again soon!

  2. Looks good. Love these sorts of recipes – fresh, tasty, healthy and delicious… most of it from withing arms-length of your back door.

  3. I should add that I found the soup quite satisfying, which says a lot since a good friend had emailed a detailed description of her yummy fish and chips dinner just prior to preparation!
