Easy Laksa Curry

Along with Indian food, Thai is up there with my favourites. It’s always full of flavour and tastes fresh and healthy! This is an easy recipe for making veggie or adding chicken, prawns or tofu if you wish. As with all the recipes I share, the more variety of veg you use, the more fiber points you get. 

Laksa Curry Fiber Points 17+

2 stalks of lemongrass (white part only), chopped

3 shallots or spring onions, peeled and chopped

4 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped

Red Thai curry paste

2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Soup:

400 ml (1 can) coconut milk

1 litre chicken or vegetable broth

200g rice vermicelli or flat noodles
