Try this easy oriental-style soup – made in just a few minutes! It’s low calorie, healthy and sustaining.

Prep time: 10 minutes / Cook time: 15 minutes

Heat the vegetable stock or miso stock in a large saucepan until simmering, then add the mushrooms, spring onions, broccoli and chilli.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes, then add the coriander.

Season to taste with soy sauce (or use a little salt and pepper), then serve.

Cook’s tip: To make the soup more filling, add a sachet of pre-cooked (ready-to-wok) noodles just before serving. You can buy miso* soup paste at most supermarkets – just follow the pack guidelines to make up 1 litre.
