This has to be one of my go to dinners if and when I’m cooking for friends (but not in 2020 clearly). It’s thick, comforting and packed with flavour taking the humble cauliflower and transforming it into a key ingredient for this curried soup.

For a thinner texture, or for more stock feel free to add a little more water to this dish.

Which noodes? I used Amoy medium noodles as they’re delicious and thick, perfect for this recipe. You can swap for thicker udon noodles.

What coconut milk? I use full fat however you can use the ‘lighter’ tinned milk but the consistency might be a little thicker.

How much stock? I like to add around 700ml of stock (made with boiling water and a stock cube) however If you like a thinner soup add around 1l, or if you are looking for a thicker texture, keep to around 500ml of stock (you want enough for the noodles to soak up).

What Broccoli?I’ve used tenderstem as the stalks work perfectly for crunch in this dish. You can use normal florets but I definitely recommend tenderstem instead. A good swap would be fine green beans for texture.

What if I like spice?Go on! Get generous with the chilli flakes when serving up, or go one step further and drizzle on that sriracha for extra FLAMES!

Is the ginger essential? Yes! The ginger, garlic, chilli and onion are what give this dish the flavour! The spices give depth too but the first ingredients are essential to making a delicious stock.

Notes

Which noodes? I used Amoy medium noodles as they're delicious and thick, perfect for this recipe. You can swap for thicker udon noodles.
What coconut milk? I use full fat however you can use the 'lighter' tinned milk but the consistency might be a little thicker
How much stock? Again I like to add around 700ml however you can add a little more to the dish if the noodles soak it all up, just remember to leave a few more minutes for the stock to absorb the flavours of the soup before serving
What Broccoli? I've used tenderstem as the stalks work perfectly for crunch in this dish. You can use normal florets but I definitely recommend tenderstem instead. A good swap would be fine green beans for texture.
What if I like spice? Go on! Get generous with the chilli flakes for serving, or go one step further and drizzle on that sriracha for FLAMES!

    I liked the idea, but this was very bland, even when doubling the spices.

      Oh no Jane! Sorry to hear that. I’ve had lots of people tag me in their remakes at home so I’m not too sure what to reply! All I can ask is if you used all of the ingredients listed, the lime, chilli, ginger, garlic, turmeric and cumin? This recipe needs to full 3-4 garlic cloves and a good thumb sized piece of ginger. A good tip is to grate 1/2 of the ginger into the soup once it’s all together and simmering away.

      Hey Matt, I use 1/2 lime squeezed into the soup. I also place 1/4 slice in each bowl whilst serving in case anyone wants an extra hit!

    Absolutely loved this! I used red peppers instead of broccolli just because I had some I needed using up and it was so delicious. I also used ramen noodles as they were the only ones I had. Thank you so much for such a simple and delicious recipe. Will definitely be making it a staple in our house.
