Greeting you old friend with one of my favourite types of recipes – a clean out the fridge recipe. Perfect for the mildly uncomfortable time between Christmas and New Years where buying groceries feels excessive and you’ve been including chocolate as a food group for two days too long.
This soup is the fix for getting loads of vitamin-chocked veggies and fibre into your diet after a deliciously-luxurious Christmas season. It comes together in less than 30 minutes (for real) and will clear out the nostrils of any sniffling loved ones.
This Red Thai Chickpea Noodle Soup is:
-1 part any unloved vegetables you have hanging about your crisper.
-1 part pantry stapes like chickpeas, curry paste, tamari and garlic.
– bonus points for a squeeze of citrus and glug of creamy plant milk.

- 2 tbsp tamari

- In a large pot, heat a drizzle of oil over medium high until hot.

- Stir in the garlic, ginger and curry paste. Cook for 2-3 min over medium heat, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper.
