About this recipe: A delicious broth-like soup, made by simmering together garlic, ginger, courgettes, chicken, noodles and fresh spinach. Serve with a dash of soy sauce, if desired.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh root ginger
  • 125g courgette, chopped
  • 280g cooked chicken, cubed
  • 60g bean thread noodles
  • 120g fresh spinach

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Bring the chicken stock, garlic and ginger to the boil in a large saucepan; reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the courgette and cook until the courgette is tender, about 10 minutes more. Stir in the chicken and bean thread noodles; cook until the chicken is hot and the noodles are soft and transparent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the spinach until wilted.


Bean thread noodles are also known as cellophane noodles. If your local supermarket doesn't stock them, you can find them in Chinese speciality stores.
