This has to be one of my favourite recipes. It’s great as a soup but I often add some cooked chicken and serve with rice.  The recipe is from one of the Avoca cookbooks. Anyway give it a try and let me know what you think.

Ingredients

15g/1/2 oz butter

2 spring onions, chopped

1 medium carrot cut into fine strips

2 teaspoons of finely chopped lemongrass

2 garlic cloves peeled and crushed

1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon of ground turmeric

2 teaspoons of ground coriander

2 green chillies, chopped

12 green beans, roughly chopped

2 x 400 ml cans of coconut milk

½ vegetable stock cube crumbled or 2 tbsp of liquid stock

110g/4oz bean sprouts

2 tablespoons of chopped fresh coriander

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan.
  2. Add the spring onions, carrot, lemongrass, garlic and ginger and stir over a medium heat for 1 minute.
  3. Add the turmeric, coriander, chillies, green beans, coconut milk and stock cube and mix well.
  4. Bring to the boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the bean sprouts and fresh coriander, season to taste and serve.
