Bring the water to the boil in a large saucepan and dissolve the stock cube in the water. Add the laksa paste and coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
Add the noodles and stir for 2–3 minutes then add all the vegetables. Bring to a simmer and allow the flavours to marry for a few minutes before dividing among large bowls.
Scatter the chilli over each serving along with a little chopped coriander.
Grate some apple over each serving and finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
+ Swap the brown rice noodles for white rice noodles or other noodles you have on hand (bearing in mind that they might take less or more time to cook).
+ Try grating other vegetables like celeriac, parsnip or even beetroot for a delicious earthy twist.
