  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 heaped tbsp tom yum paste (we like Thai Taste, from Waitrose)
  • 2cm piece of fresh ginger, diced
  • 160g Clearspring Organic udon noodles (from Ocado and Waitrose), or similar
  • 120g pack Rannoch smoked duck (from Ocado and Waitrose), or similar
  • 260g pack Waitrose Crunchy Oriental Stir-fry, or similar
  • 2 spring onions, shredded
  • ½ red chilli, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • Juice of ½ lime, plus wedges to serve


  1. Pour the stock into a saucepan with 750ml water, cover and bring to the boil. Stir through the tom yum paste, then add the ginger and noodles. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the duck slices and cook for 2 minutes more.
  2. Finally, stir through the crunchy veg mix, spring onions and chilli. Cook for another 2 minutes until the veg are just tender, but still retain some bite. Add the sugar and squeeze over the juice of ½ lime. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Spoon between bowls and serve with lime wedges.
