1Heat the oil in your largest pan, add the onion and fry for 3 mins to soften. Add the chicken and garlic, and cook until the chicken changes colour.
3Add the curry paste, coconut milk, stock, lime leaves and fish sauce, then simmer for 12 mins.
5Add the chopped onion tops, green beans and bamboo shoots and cook for 4-6 mins, until the beans are just tender.
7Meanwhile, put the lime juice and basil in a narrow jug and blitz with a hand blender to make a smooth green paste. Pour into the soup with the sliced spring onion and heat through. Serve with lime wedges.
