Thai Coconut Soup

It’s cold again here, and we’re taking a night off from tacos. This is a delicious recipe, adapted from The Little Ferraro Kitchen. On the side, we had a salad with peanut-ginger dressing and then an awesome vegan cherry pie. Full disclosure, the pie is not homemade.

1.5 c mushrooms, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 small (Roma) tomato, chopped
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 full stalk lemongrass, cut into pieces and halved lengthwise
1 piece dried kombu or other sea vegetable
1 TBL Siracha
4 faux chicken stock
1 half can (full-fat) coconut milk (or 1 can light)
1/2 block firm tofu, cut into 1-inch pieces and lightly pan fried
2-3 green onions, sliced
1 lime, sliced
cilantro

Heat oil in a dutch oven and cook ginger, garlic, bell pepper, and tomato for 5-6 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook 3-4 more minutes. Add lemon grass, stock, Siracha, kombu, and tofu. Simmer on low for 20 minutes. Stir in green onions and coconut milk. Serve with fresh squeezed lime and cilantro.
