Really nice soup. Added some bok choy.

Delicious, but i think it needs more soy sauce. instead of putting basil or mint in I favour coriander and also a dash of lime juice.

So good! Really impressed with this recipe, I think it will be a regular now in our house! Followed the recipe exactly, just doubled it so that I could have some to freeze for those coldy days, and it was great. Reminded me so much of the delicious soups I used to get from our local chinese restaurant, but without the guilt! I used Kallo stock cubes and Kikkoman Tamari to make it Gluten Free. Next time I think i'll try homemade stock too, just to make it a bit healthier. But this was a quick week day night meal which was delicious! Just don't make my mistake and add a regular amount of noodles per person- the recipe calls for just 50g so you don't swamp the soup!

Great recipe which I'm sure I will make often. Tasty, easy, and quick. I followed the recipe for the first bowl, and for the second bowl I added a bit of spinach (just to increase the veg content) before pouring the soup over the top.

After reading some of the comments I was really hoping it was going to be as good as all the comments said it would, And it didn't disappointed. This recipe is so tasty and filling. You can have a it big pot made up in no time at all, and i doubled up on all the ingredients to make a big pot. I will definitely make it again. It has become a firm favourite.

This has been the most well-received dish I think I've ever made. Followed the recipe exactly and both my husband and Mum said it was easily as good as any from a Chinese restaurant, if not better. Another major plus is that my extremely fussy children demolished their servings then went looking for more! A win all round!! Will be a regular feature in our weekly meal plans from now on ☺

Made this for the first time tonight. Added more chicken and more noodles for my teenage boys. It was a hit!
