  • 2 cups (500ml) coconut milk (canned variety)
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 stalk lemongrass
  • 6-8 peppercorns
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tbs fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 carrot, peeled, diced
  • 300g can baby corn, drained, thinly sliced

Method

  1. Pour the So Good™ milk, coconut milk and vegetable stock into a saucepan. Add the kaffir lime leaf, lemon grass and peppercorns. Heat on a medium heat and bring to a simmer - do not boil rapidly.
  2. In another saucepan, heat the oil over a medium heat. Fry the onion and garlic for about 2-3 minutes until tender. Add carrot and cook for 5 minutes. Then add corn and tofu. Remove the kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass from the liquids before adding to the vegetables. Simmer for 5 minutes, but do not boil. Add spinach and lime juice and season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the noodles. Heat a pan of water and bring to the boil before dropping in the noodles. Boil until tender or as per packet instructions. Drain, set aside.
