Tasty Tuesday, Back With A Bang!

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

Toady sees the return of Tasty Tuesday, my magnificent recipe day where I show how easy it is to prepare tasty and healthy food proving as always that if I can do it, anyone can do it!

I must first start by apologising to those of you who like to tune in for a recipe on this day because I can only assume it completely slipped my mind, honestly never even entering my consciousness to write a recipe because it was a Tuesday. Hopefully today’s offering will remedy this so lets see shall we.

So what’s on the menu today then Magnet? (That was the constant monologue in my brain asking that… 😉 )

Well I’m glad you asked because today we have Thai Chicken and Noodle soup and it is LOVELY!

Let me show you how to make it.

Ingredients:

  1. 200gms x Clearsprung Japanese Udon Noodles.
  2. 3 x Large Chicken Breast Fillets.
  3. 2 Inch block Ginger – finely sliced
  4. 3 Garlic Cloves – finely sliced
  5. 3 x Kaffir Lime Leaves – Dried, Frozen or Fresh.
  6. 1 x Bunch Coriander.
  7. 1 x Bunch Spring/Salad Onions – finely sliced.
  8. 1 Large Lemon Grass Stalk – finely sliced and chopped.
  9. 2 Fresh Limes for juicing.
  10. 2 Red Chilli’s – Deseeded and finely chopped.
  11. 1 Pint of Chicken Stock – Halve this if you do not use the Noodles.

    That does sound great. Tis the season for the desire to make soups and stews. Last weekend the high here didn’t even hit 20 degrees! I think this is one that the family would like too!
