Tom yum soup HERO

Put the stock and tom yum paste in a pan and add the lemongrass and ginger. Bring slowly to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chilli, fish sauce and prawns and cook for 2 minutes.

Remove from the heat and ladle into bowls, scatter over the herbs and serve with some lime wedges, if you like.

Tip Stir in coconut milk to give a thicker, richer tom yum soup
