  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely sliced
  • 1 red finger chilli, finely sliced
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 stalks of lemongrass
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 400ml coconut milk
  • The juice of 1 lime

How to make Thai Parsnip & Lime Soup

1. Prepare the vegetables, and with the flat edge of the knife, crush the lemongrass stalks so that they release their flavour but stay in one piece.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then add the onions, ginger, chilli and two of the spring onions. Fry until softening.

3. Place the parsnips, lemongrass and onion mix into a large pot, and pour over the Herbamare® Bouillon.

4. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

5. Stir in the fish sauce, coconut milk and lime juice, and season with black pepper, turmeric and Herbamare® Original seasoning salt.

6. Continue to simmer until the parsnips are soft, approximately 10 minutes, adding more water if the soup is too thick.

7. 2 minutes before serving, remove the lemongrass stalks, and add the noodles.

8. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and the remaining spring onion.
