Prawn Tom Yum Soup


Prawn Tom Yum soup is a Thai soup with a hot and sour flavour, Tom Kha is similar but has a coconut milk base.  This recipe is perfect if you want a healthy lunch but are short on prep time as it only takes 15 minutes. 

I kept it simple by using stir fry veg, prepped prawns and tom yum paste which I picked up in Tesco. 

As with most of my recipes you can customise this to suit your own tastes – pick what veggies you want to use and you can swap the prawns for chicken or extra vegetables.
