Lemongrass laksa

Lemongrass laksa

I was going to call this “lemongrass rainbow laksa” because it is so beautiful with all it’s lovely shiny veggie colours 🙂

This recipe is primarily from Vegan Sparkles and I’m so glad I found it. We love laksa! And to make your own plant based version without commercial pastes is divine 😉 I actually had made the kids something different for dinner because I didn’t think they’d be into laksa but they both ended up eating ours instead! Wow. Will know for next time!

Paste Ingredients

4 cloves garlic

2 stalks lemongrass (white part)

2 cm knob of ginger

1 red chilli (or more if you like extra heat!)

1 tsp tumeric

5 kaffir lime leaves

Blend/puree/process these together (I use a mini food processor) into a divine yellow laksa paste!

Laksa ingredients

1 tin coconut cream

4 cups water or vegetable stock

1 T tamarind paste

2 T tamari sauce

1 T coconut palm sugar

Juice of 1 lime

1 T sesame oil

200g rice vermicelli noodles

3 cups vegetables : julienned carrot/capsicum/bean sprouts/broccoli florets/ julienned snow peas/ spanish onion



Soak the noodles to soften.

Fry the spice paste in oil for a couple of minutes and add remaining ingredients to simmer for 5 minutes.

Spoon into bowls and top with bean sprouts and coriander. Enjoy!
