3 parsnips, peeled and cut into batons
450g Co-op noodles
2 tbsp Ownsworth’s Rapeseed Oil 
1 leek, trimmed and finely sliced
1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks

  1. Cook the potatoes and parsnips in a large pan of boiling water until tender. Put the noodles in a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and set aside for 10 minutes.

  3. Stir in the curry paste, cinnamon and star anise (if using) and fry for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add the coconut milk, stock, soy sauce, sugar and orange zest. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 5 minutes. 
  4. Drain the noodles and transfer to 6 warm bowls. Drain the potatoes and parsnips and serve on top of the noodles, then ladle over the soup. Serve scattered with fresh coriander, if using.
