Prawn and vegetable laksa (for kids and adults)



4 portion(s)

Prawn and vegetable laksa

  • 60 g laksa paste, (I use linghams)
  • 400g can coconut milk
  • 800 g chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp kaffir lime leaves jar, (or 2 fresh)
  • 200 g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 250 g Rice Vermicelli Noodles
  • 400 raw green prawns, (I prefer tails on)

To serve

  • dash fish sauce
  • lime wedges
  • coriander leaves, chopped
  • fresh bean sprouts
  • sambal oelek, (optional)
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • fresh red chilli, sliced thinly

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place laksa paste and a spoonful of the coconut milk into the TM bowl and cook 2 min, 90 degrees, speed 2.
    (If you are cooking this for children as well, set the majority of the paste aside, to then be put back in after you have made your children's serves.)
    Add remaining coconut milk and chicken stock and heat 10 mins, 90 degress, speed 1.
    Add kaffir lime leaves (if using), broccoli and vermicelli noodles and cook 3 mins 90 degrees, speed 1.
    Add prawns and cook for a further 2 min, 90 degrees, speed 1 or until the prawns are cooked to your liking.
    Transfer ingredients evenly into to bowls and serve with the fresh "to serve" ingredients. These are a very important part of the dish, adjust serves to your liking!

For those with specific dietry requirements (ie gluten free / dairy free) check the ingredients on the jar of the laksa paste you use to ensure it suits your needs. You can always make your own if necessary.

I based this on the laksa from the book something for everyone by louise fulton keats but made so many alterations that I decided to record the changes for my own use.
