Teresa Cutter's laksa

all details

A typical bowl of laksa will set you back about 2520 kilojoules (and 40 grams of fat). I've adjusted the ingredients to be kinder to the waistline, opting for more stock and vegetables and less coconut and refined carbs, resulting in around 966 kilojoules and seven grams of fat. It still tastes great.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp laksa paste
  • 600ml vegetable stock
  • 125ml light evaporated skim milk or coconut milk

  • 100g bean sprouts
  • Juice from ½ lime

  • Sliced chilli optional

Method

Combine paste, stock and milk and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, add the fish then simmer for 5 minutes.

Add green vegetables and heat through for 3 minutes.

Divide the bean sprouts between serving bowls and ladle in the hot soup.

Squeeze over lime, garnish with coriander and enjoy.

    The photo appears to be of something more like a Thai green curry. Most of the vegetables pictured are not listed in the recipe and basil, typical of a green curry, is visible whereas coriander is listed. And what are "asian greens" anyway? Could the recipe be less specific?

    Quantities of bean sprouts should be referred to by volume not weight.

    No laksa recipe that lists "laksa paste" as a main ingredient is worth publishing, given the wide range of commercial laksa pastes available. Either state which paste or provide a recipe for the paste.

    Anyway, I will think it looks like a thai green curry and far to many hard crunchy greens unless it is a vegetarian laksa.

    With all do respect to Teresa Cutter being a health chef, this recipe is NOT a Laksa recipe because:

    1. Where are the noodles in this recipe? Laksa is a noodle soup, not just a soup.
    2. Laksa must ALWAYS include coconut milk...some people add evaporated milk to increase the creaminess, but one shouldn't completely substitute coconut milk with normal milk.
