Soups: Tom Yum Soup

Slight hiccup - forgot to include the chicken stock needed to finish off the soup.

The ingredients should include:
4 to 5 cups hot chicken stock
After adding the Udon Noodles, the recipe should read:

Add the Udon noodles, combine, and then add enough hot chicken stock to make up the desired amount of liquid you like in your soup. Bring the soup to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 mins or until the vetegables are cooked to your taste. If using prawns, don’t add them until the last couple of minutes, just to heat through.


Breakfast: Bubble & Squeak
