Absolutely beautiful soups, and so easy to make. This has become one of our weekly favs!

I was making this to take to my dad and ended up having to make double once my partner smelled it! It was really tastey while not being overly complicated. I added chillies to the broth to give it an extra kick and that worked really well. I do think it is meant to serve 2 though - one chicken breast wouldnt go near serving 4 in my house!

I have made this many times with great success.
My only adjustment to the recipe is that I blend the garlic and ginger with a little water to make a paste rather than chopping it up.

Fantastic, easy, healthy. To cut down on carbs (I'm on a diet) I used angel hair sized tofu noodles and added baby bok choy and omitted sweet corn. In the future I'll probably add the corn back in :-)

This soup tastes like a real treat and only 6 propoints a bowl.

Really enjoyed this, low fat yet filling. I added a small amount of chopped chilli when adding the noodles, gave the broth a nice little kick.

This is simply beautiful. Mary is my favourite on here. Her recipes are mainly easy enough for me and the results are always fantastic. I made a schoolboy errror and added 1 tbsp of fresh ginger instead of 1 tsp. I love ginger and prefer it with the extra pow!

10/10!! Thank you Mary.

ridiculously easy to make. tripled all ingredients so that it'd last a couple of days..had to add lots of salt and chilli to make it flavoursome though. will add pak choi next time.

Wow, this was delicious! Used tiger prawns instead of chicken and replaced the mushrooms and spring onions with mangetout and half a red chilli. Ready within 15 mins.
