At it’s most basic, this is just a really delicious soup that will warm you right up.The only necessary serving suggestions are the fresh herbs, everything else is up to you in terms of what you have time for, how many people you’re serving and how hungry everyone is. You don’t actually have to have a fondue pot or anything. You can just place the pot on a trivet in the middle of the table. It won’t have a chance to get cold! by Isa Chandra at Post Punk Kitchen.

Directions

  1. Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Mix the cornstarch into the broth and set aside (this is easiest if you just mix it into about a cup of broth, then pour the rest of the broth in). Saute onion and pepper in the oil with a big pinch of salt, until onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic, lemongrass, ginger and red pepper flakes and mix inches Cook until fragrant, about a minute, then stream in the broth/cornstarch mixture and add most of the other ingredients: star anise, cinnamon, shiitakes, soy sauce, tomatoes and fresh black pepper. Stir often for the first 10 minutes or so, until the cornstarch has thickened the broth a bit. Now cover pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to simmer and cook covered for a good half hour, until mushrooms are completely softened.
  3. Add coconut milk and lime, and taste for salt. Heat through and serve with fresh herbs and other accoutrement.
