Spicy Noodle Soup

This high protein soup is packed with rice noodles, bean sprouts and juicy king prawns in a spicy, coconut sauce.

I am always looking for ways to make new high protein soups, and this one is a belter! It’s a twist on the popular laksa soup, with fewer calories. Extremely easy to make, this is definitely a top pick for the weekend’s prep work. You can then take the soup to work with you and it’s tasty whether it’s hot or cold.

Serves: 2


  • 500g rice noodles
  • 8-10 sprays light cooking oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 340g raw king prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 500ml boiling chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp laksa paste
  • 1 x 400ml tin light coconut milk
  • handful of beansprouts
  • 2 tsbsp fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped


  1. Place the rice noodles in a bowl of boiling water and leave them to soften.

  2. Heat a pan over a medium heat and spray with cooking oil. Add the garlic and prawns and cook for 2 minutes.

  3. Add the stock, laksa paste and coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
