500 g

Salt reduced chicken stock

4 cup(s), (1L)

Fresh lemongrass

Fresh ginger

1 tbs, 3cm piece, thinly sliced

Tom yum paste

2 tbs

  1. Place chicken, stock, lemongrass and ginger in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  2. Strain mixture through a fine sieve. Transfer chicken to a plate. Discard remaining solids and reserve stock. Using 2 forks, shred chicken and return to same saucepan with stock.
  3. Add paste, fish sauce, zucchini, mushrooms, corn, pumpkin and lime leaf to stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 2 minutes or until combined and heated through. Serve.


TIPS: • Use a vegetable peeler to cut pumpkin into thin ribbons. • You could use 2 teaspoons finely grated lime rind instead of kaffir lime leaves. • Add it: Fresh Thai basil or coriander leaves, lime wedges and 1 long fresh red chilli (thinly sliced) to serve. • Swap it: Tom yum paste for Thai red curry paste.
