Made this last night. Turned out great. Was so quick , easy and full of flavor. Added some chilli paste for extra spicy kick. Shall make it again.

Added some chicken, fresh coriander leaves & soy sauce - which made a filling and tasty meal - will definitely be cooking again

Really tasty -wanted it as a pot noodle for work but decided against as quite watery and likely to splash it on work clothes! Quick, tasty and healthy so ticks all my boxes!

Turned out more of a noodle soup than a pot noodle, but nice tasting. Due to an interruption during lunch, I can also confirm that it's nice reheated in the microwave.

I tried this as a lunch for work. I tried using dried noodles to see if it would work - it was ok but next time I will boil the noodles in the morning first then whack in the veg then take a stock cube and the thai curry paste to work to be able to add them just before lunch so I can have like a pot noodle at work which will actually be better for me and alot more tasty

Easy recipe, but not to my taste at all.

It may have been the quality of my chicken stock, but this other than thai fieriness lacked taste. It was a healthy lunch though and easy to prepare.

Lovely quick meal, I may add some chilli flakes next time as I would have liked it to have more of a kick - was very good though!

this has become a firm favourite for me when I'm juist cooking for myself! If you like fresh veg and spicy food, it is perfect for a winter evening.
