DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add coconut milk and lime, and taste for salt. Heat through and serve with fresh herbs and other accoutrement.
