This needs at least double the stock, I would also suggest adding sweet potato to this (cooked in the stock). Was so nice, really delicious. I added full fat coconut milk and two chillis as I like spicy dishes. Will be making this again very soon.

Very good soup for winter. However I recommend slightly more than 200ml for the vegetable stock to look like a soup.

Really tasty, I found Thai red curry paste worked really well, plus added a chili while frying the veg at the start. Gave it a good kick! No fish stock - used chicken with a dash of fish sauce. Also served with a squeeze of lime. Awesome!
