    Didn’t use lemongrass, but lots of ginger, julienned carrots and courgettes. Delish!

    It was delicious! Couldn’t find lime leaves so omitted them.

    Fantastic. Wonderful rich flavours. More of a meal than a soup. I’m cooking it again tonight but using prawns instead of chicken, and less noodles.

    Really easy & turned out great. Even the kids loved it. I was missing s few ingredients, but it didn’t seem to effect the quality, I just did subs and I added fresh spinach to it, as well as hemp seed.

    Noodles absorbed most of the liquid but it was very tasty and a hit with the family.

    I liked this recipe a lot, it was fairly easy to make and tasty. It benefits from more spice rather than less.

    It is packed with flavors. I did not have fish oil and substituted lemon grass paste for the stalks. This is better than any I have tried in the past.

    A little bland I think it needed something spicy but delic all the same

    I converted it to an instant pot version and it was fine. Probably amp up the curry a bit and drop and of the cans of coconut milk and add more veggies.

    omg that is amazing.
    I made this for my roommate and I and it turned out great! I added some chilli garlic sauce for an extra kick, nixed the sprouts and added mushrooms. fantastic winter recipe!

    This was very good, but it was thanks to some adjustments I made based on some previous reviews. I only used the juice of one lime initially & then added a bit more at the end to my liking. I think the zest & juice of 2 limes is too much (and I didn’t even have or use lime leaves). I also only added enough noodles so that there was a good balance of noodles & broth.

    it is amazing! We can't have noodles so I replaced the noodles with wild rice that I had already had in the fridge cooked... And I added some chicken. I am definitely going to make this again

    I only used 1-1/2 of the limes and that was wayyyy too much. Next time only one lime.

    Loved the flavor and very creamy which is what I was aiming for.

    Very tasty! Next time I'll cook the rice noodles separately as they absorbed all my broth.

    Anazing!! Add lots of coconut milk for a creamier soup
    Jon Nowicki 3 years ago
    The flavors are perfect. You can add your favorite vegetables decrease the stock and serve over rice or make as published as I did.

    Delicious! We love Thai food and the noodles make it kid friendly. I like that it can also be vegetarian if need be, and it's still so full of flavor even without the chicken.

    Used yellow curry to create a very tasty family pleasing dinner. Had to double the amount of curry because the coconut milk mellowed it out too much. I added red pepper at the end rather than sprouts and it was great!
