A warming bowl of noodle soup is one of my winter favourites. Ginger, garlic, spring onions and coriander all combine to make a comforting and flavoursome soup base. It's a great recipe for using up leftover chicken.

Method
  1. Pour the stock into a large saucepan and add the noodles, ginger, garlic, sweetcorn, mushrooms, half the spring onion and the soy sauce. Simmer for 3–4 minutes or until the noodles are tender. Add the cooked chicken and heat through until piping hot.
  2. Ladle into two bowls, making sure the noodles are split evenly between the two servings. Sprinkle the chopped coriander and remaining spring onion over the top and serve.
Fresh coriander has a citrusy taste. The stems can also be used for extra crunch and aroma.
