Why order takeaway when this fabulous soup is so quick to whip up at home? Prawns are a filling source of protein, while the zucchini noodles, or “zoodles”, are a more easily digestible alternative to wheat and white rice noodles, which can send your blood sugar on a rollercoaster. Enjoy as a light lunch or dinner.
