I absolutely loved this recipe. This was the best soup I ever eat!

This turned out much better than I expected. Easy and quick t omake and very tasty. I'd run out of vegie red curry paste so used another Thai curry paste. Had no Cherry tomatoes either! Added some fresh finely chopped chilli both to the broth and when serving and used wide rice noodles instead of egg noodles.

Sadly, I was very disappointed by this recipe. Followed it and found it too acidic and bland. Too much lime and too little thai paste. Will unfortunately not be doing this again, unless I tweak it a fair bit, but then I'm probably better off using a different recipe.

Delish! I made a few modifications though. Used one carrot, half a red capsicum, small bits of bok choi and gai lan. A small packet of vermicelli instead of egg noodles. Will make again!

This is delicious! I changed the veg a bit using up what I had in the fridge, and added a chilli for extra heat (we like it hot). Also excellent for a cold remedy! Yummy!

Made this for my husband & I but added large prawns to the broth, worked very well & was enjoyed very much, will make this again, did not add as much stock as the recipe states, making the broth a bit thicker & the dish was more substantial

Made this according to the recipe and it was absolutely delicious. I was a little hesitant that the veg would all cook in the given times but providing your chopping is fine enough then the times work out perfectly. I thoroughly recommend.

Delicious!! I used green curry paste as I had no red. It's really filling. Easy to make. I'll definitely be having it again . Wife loved it too!

So delicious, I added some finely chopped chillis to add some extra heat and the spicy/sweet combination is perfect! Would definitely recommend this!

The taste was good but I would have to disagree with previous comments recommending the use of less stock. This resulted in a thick sauce, rather than "broth" and ruined the dish somewhat. I will stick to the recipe next time.

Taste was amazing! Better then any noodle soups Ive tried in restaurants! Will be making this again, maybe with some added chicken although it was great with just the veg!

Very nice. I use 400ml coconut milk and 500ml stock as well. I also used a pack of stir fry veg (was being lazy). Very good.

I used 400 ml coconut milk and 500 ml stock. That was perfect. You might want to try that instead.

Very nice, tasty, quick and easy! May use slightly less stock less time though, but definately on the repeat list ;-)
