Thai food is all about balance: spicy, sweet, salty and sour. This quick and easy meal combines Thai spicing and flavours with healthy stir-fried vegetables for an impressive-looking but oh-so-easy soup. You can add any vegetables you like, so long as you cook the harder ones for longer. It's also especially good with potatoes, either simmered in the soup until soft or use up left-over potatoes and just heat them through in the soup at the very end.

Ingredients

  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2tsp peanut (groundnut) oil (optional)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1tsp chilli powder
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • Ĺtsp turmeric
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1tsp brown sugar
  • Ĺ tsp salt
