Big Phat Veggie Noodle Soup

Ahh yes the go-to meal on those days when the cold surf has done you in, when your body aches a little and your nose is full of seawater. The wind is howling outside, so put the TV on, grab your warmest socks, whip this up in 10 minutes and slurp away. This hearty warming recipe is from Surf Cafe Living on page 150.

Big Phat Veggie Noodle Soup 

Serves 2

You need a wok

1 packet ramen noodles

2 thumb-size pieces of ginger, finely sliced into sticks

3 cloves garlic, sliced

1 small onion, sliced

½ stick celery

1 red chilli (seeds in if you need to sweat it out), sliced

1 pepper, sliced (any colour)

2 scallions (green onions), sliced

1 portion veg, like broccoli, spinach, beans – preferably something green for health

50g (½ cup) coriander, chopped

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

750ml (3½ cups) veg stock (hot water from the kettle and organic veg cube)

Coriander to garnish

To begin, slice everything down nice and thin. Prep the work area and get organised because things are going to cook fast.

Put the kettle on as you need boiling water.

Grab the wok and heat it up with vegetable oil and sesame oil until it’s just smoking.
