Asian Lemongrass Soup

Why not try an Asian soup for lunch to change things up a little bit? Personally, I love all Asian flavours, and we use them every week at home. If you don’t have the vegetables listed below, feel free to substitute them with anything you have!

 4 servings


20 ml (1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon) olive oil
250 g (2 large) portobello mushrooms, sliced
360 g (2) chicken breasts, halved lengthwise
3 garlic cloves, chopped
10 ml (2 teaspoons) ginger, chopped
30 ml (2 tablespoons) lemongrass, chopped
2 l (8 cups) low-sodium chicken broth
30 ml (2 tablespoons) soy sauce
15 ml (1 tablespoon) lime or lemon juice
7.5 ml (1/2 tablespoon) fish sauce
450 g (4 cups) bok choy, sliced
450 g (4 cups) Chinese cabbage, sliced
114 g (1/4 package) rice noodles
20 ml (4 teaspoons) sambal oelek (to taste)
60 ml (1/4 cup) unsalted peanuts, chopped


  1. In a non-stick pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Cook the mushrooms over high heat for about 2 minutes on each side. Add salt and pepper, and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, add the remaining olive oil (2 teaspoons), and cook the chicken breasts for about 5 minutes on each side. Add salt and pepper, and set aside.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger, and lemongrass. Cook for 30 seconds while mixing with a spatula. Add the chicken broth, soy sauce, lime juice, and fish sauce. Bring to a boil before adding the bok choy and Chinese cabbage. Cook for about 8 minutes, and then add the noodles. Resume cooking for another 3 minutes.
  4. Garnish with sambal oelek and peanuts before serving.
