Thai Noodle Soup

If you’re looking for something warming, filling, packed full of nutrients and calorie friendly, then this is the recipe for you.

The warming of the lightly spiced soup, with the protein packed tofu and nutrient rich veggies makes this a great all rounder recipe. I use the low calorie protein rice noodles by Bare Naked and it comes out at around 250 calories for a huge portion, that sounds like a total win to me!

I often like to use the quorn vegan chicken pieces instead of tofu in this, I love the texture they bring and the way they absorb the flavours. If I’m using the chicken pieces instead of tofu, sometimes I fry them off before adding to give a little bit of colour, but this isn't necessary if you’re a little short on time and want to keep the washing up to one pan.

Whilst on the subject of washing up, can I just make a quick shout out to one pot recipes? One pot to wash for an entire meal sounds like a pretty good win to me, and if you’re only making half the amount for just yourself, you can even eat it straight out the pan with a set of chopsticks and a soup spoon. 

If you haven’t got any spinach to hand, you can swap that out for some shredded cabbage or bok choy, which both make for a delicious and nutritious meal.ww
