Last week I mentioned that I’ve been working with Belvoir to create some deliciously warming autumnal recipes. One of the things I really enjoy about recipe development is playing with flavours. I put something in, cook the recipe, taste it, then maybe I’ll cook it again without it, just to see if it really does enhance the finished dish. This lime and lemongrass noodle soup is a classic example. The Lime and Lemongrass Cordial is a summer favourite in this house – it’s fresh and aromatic and we love it splashed into fizzy water with a load of ice cubes. We thought the flavour would work well in something Asian-inspired, but I wasn’t prepared for the difference the relatively small amount of cordial made to the end result. I find now that whenever I’m cooking anything that needs a citrussy, herbal lift, I reach for this cordial, which pleases me as it turns a summer favourite into an all-year-rounder. This gorgeous, flavoursome noodle soup is just perfect for autumnal days and as it’s really quick to make, it’s great for a warming, after work supper.
