    Love this recipe! One of our family favourites. I make the paste and freeze half in a snap lock bag for another time.

    Made this last night – fabulous – and having the “second-half-of-the-first-batch” tonight! Popped back to post this tip on how to quickly prep the fresh ingredients: throw the tomatoes (quartered) and the cucumber (cut into 5cm or so sticks), the spring onions and any other veg you want to add as fresh (eg: asparagus stems, zucchini) and chop at speed 4 for 10 seconds (or less if you want more chunky). Do this before making the paste or the soup – or before you reheat – and no need to wash out the mixing bowl, plus everything is ready once… Read more »

    seriously the flavour in this is awesome! I love the time saving aspect of the double batch of paste. Way to go Bec thank you for sharing 🙂


    Hi can the noodles be found at a regular shop? Cheers Jo


    Stunning, my 3 kids 7, 4.75 and my lil lady whose 2nd birthday dinner I made this for tonight devoured it to my utter surprise! My mum couldn’t stop raving how I have out done myself, I did remind her it wasn’t my recipe 😉 Thx again Bec just beautiful, can’t wait to use the left over past xxx oh and ps I made a zillion mistakes through distraction so if I followed it to a tee OMG I can’t even imagine!


    Made this for the first time tonight and the whole family loved it. I reduced the chilli to one, and added a dish of extra chilli on the table for those who like more heat to add to their own bowl. Also increased the lime juice and added some fish sauce (so not technically vegetarian any more). My paste didn’t really grind up smooth so I ended up straining the laksa into the serving bowls as my kids are funny about ‘bits’. Aside from being delicious you could really feel this soup doing you good. Very comforting.

    I just wanted to add that my fifteen year old daughter was coming down with a cold the night I made this. She said it felt really good on her sore throat as she ate it, and actually asked if I would make her some more with the leftover paste to take to school in a thermos the next day. I did so, sending the fresh bits in a container for her to add at the time of eating. She has recovered much more quickly from her cold than usual and I actually wonder if all the anti- inflammatory properties… Read more »

    Delicious! Will definitely be making this again, whole family loved it, Thanks Bec


    Love this recipe. I added Lamyong vegan “prawns” to this dish along with the tofu the first time I made it and added smoked tofu the second time. Great flavour palette. I love a good hot laksa so added more chilli the second time. I also steamed some bok Choy and some fresh garlic shoots in the varoma during the last 8 minutes of cooking.

    Cooked this tonight for the first time and LOVED it! Very tasty and authentic. Will be making it again next week with the remaining paste. I also added zucchini and capsicum 🙂

    We thought this laksa was delicious, with the added plus that it was quite easy to make. I omitted the tofu and added some chicken tenderloins. Looking forward to using the spare paste next week.
    I agree with the comment above about putting the basket on the top during the cooking of the water and coconut cream.
    thanks for another great , healthy recipe
