Thai Chicken & Coconut Soup

This recipe has been taken and adapted from a Carol Vorderman detox book. It is a wonderfully light and refreshing soup that is perfect on a sunny but cool day. When buying the stock for this recipe please check the ingredients to ensure it is Low FODMAP and Gluten Free. If you do struggle to find a stock in the supermarket, one we have found is Massel's, which is an Australian make and is available to buy on Amazon. Alternatively you can just substitute the stock for water, flavoured with a splash of Soy Sauce (GF) and a squeeze of lemon juice.
