Spicy Noodle Soup

by Fraser Reynolds from Tasty High Protein

This high protein soup is packed with rice noodles, bean sprouts and juicy king prawns in a spicy, coconut sauce.


I am always looking for ways to make new high protein soups, and this one is a belter! It’s a twist on the popular laksa soup, with fewer calories. Extremely easy to make, this is definitely a top pick for the weekend’s prep work. You can then take the soup to work with you and it’s tasty whether it’s hot or cold.

500g rice noodles
8-10 sprays light cooking oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
340g raw king prawns, peeled and deveined
500ml boiling chicken stock
3 tbsp laksa paste
1 x 400ml tin light coconut milk
handful of beansprouts
2 tbsp fresh coriander, roughly chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped


Place the rice noodles in a bowl of boiling water and leave them to soften.

Heat a pan over a medium heat and spray with cooking oil. Add the garlic and prawns and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the stock, laksa paste and coconut milk and bring to a simmer.

Add the beansprouts and bring back to the boil, then remove from the heat.

Drain the noodles and divide between two deep soup bowls. Ladle the soup on top and sprinkle with the fresh coriander and chilli.
