    I made this delicious noodle soup at home with chicken after tasting something similar at a Thai restaurant. I just kept playing around with ingredients until I got it right. I think it's pretty authentic. Hope you enjoy it!

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Mince the lower 2/3 of lemongrass stalk. Bruise the remaining upper portion of lemongrass stalk by hitting it with the back of a knife.
    2. Pour chicken stock into a large pot; add minced lemongrass, bruised lemongrass stalk, 1/2 the ginger, lime leaves, garlic and chilli sauce. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer. Add chicken to simmering stock; cook until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove lemongrass stalk and lime leaves using a slotted spoon; discard.
    3. Place coriander bundle in the stock and simmer for 2 minutes. Add coconut milk, remaining ginger, brown sugar, lime juice and fish sauce. Remove coriander bundle using a slotted spoon; discard. Continue to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
    4. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a rolling boil. Add noodles and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Drain and portion noodles into serving bowls.
    5. Mix carrots, tomatoes and spring onions into stock. Ladle stock over noodles; garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

    Didn't have lime leaves and did use tomatoes & less fresh ginger (personal taste). Added some baby bok choy and used ramen from my chineese grocery store. Loved the Cook's Footnotes. Awesome.  -  18 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I like Thai soups with lemongrass, so I thought I'd try this recipe. I personally liked it and my son did, too, but my daughter and husband weren't really fans. I couldn't find the lime leaves in the store, so I omitted them.  -  04 Mar 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
