This easy-to-make dish is the ultimate midweek comfort food, and full of fragrant Asian flavours.

1. Bring the stock to boil in a large saucepan then reduce to a simmer. Separate the bok choy leaves, rinse them and add to the stock together with the prawns, spring onions, lemongrass and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes, until the prawns have turned pink and the bok choy has wilted. Divide the vermicelli between 4 bowls and ladle over the soup. Scatter the chilli and coriander on top and season with soy and lime juice.
