Timut pepper gives this dish a warm glow and an incredible depth of flavour like nothing else I’ve cooked with before.

Serves: 2



  • 8 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup julienned carrots
  • ½ red capsicum, julienned
  • ½ cup julienned celery
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, quartered
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 300g brown rice noodles

  • Soup Paste
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp sambal oelek
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • ¼ onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped coriander root + leaves to serve
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp timut pepper
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  1. Heat broth in pot.
  2. Make soup paste by combining garlic, ginger, sambal oelek, tomato, onion, coriander root, cumin, turmeric, timut pepper and 2 tbsp lime juice in blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Heat pan on high heat, add soup paste and fry for about 30 secs. Add to broth and mix well. Bring to boil and reduce heat to low.
