Asian broth

As the cooler nights set in, soups are becoming more and more enticing to eat. This asian broth is a light soup and is filled with many nutrients from all the vegetables. It requires little cooking time so it is ideal for any night of the week.


The ginger and chili provide the broth with heat that really warms you up! I love the vegetables a little crunchy as it keeps this broth fresh and full of texture.

Winter warming

This broth will keep in the fridge in a sealed container for 1 day. Great to enjoy for lunch the next day!

  1. Loved this soup Emma – light yet so filling and warming. I stuck exactly to the recipe – which is unusual for me and it was perfect. Reheated well for lunch the next day as well.
