Instructions

  1. Place the sliced shallot, garlic cloves, sliced lemongrass, sliced ginger, and ½ a seeded jalapeno, and  kefir lime leaves in a food processor, and pulse until combined into a paste, scraping down sides.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a heavy bottom pot, over medium high heat. Add the paste and fry it, stirring often. It will smell heavenly. Let it get golden, about 3-4 minutes, turning heat down if it gets too dark. This will give the soup its great flavor, so be patient and allow it to get golden.
  3. Add the water, salt and sweet potato and bring to boil. Boil 2-3 minutes covered, then add the broccoli, pressing down into the liquid. ( it’s OK if the broccoli isn’t all submerged, it will still steam) Bring this to a simmer, cover, and cook 10-12 minutes, or until broccoli is tender.
  4. Add 1 cup coconut milk (solids and liquid) and if using kale, add it now and cook a couple minutes until it wilts. ( If using other tender greens like spinach or arugula- these are fine to add directly to the blender without wilting first.)
  5. Blend in batches until smooth and creamy adding the fresh cilantro and greens.
  6. Return to the pot, simmer on low heat, add fish sauce and lime juice to taste. Find the balance.
  7. If not using fish sauce, add another ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste.
  8. Divide among bowls, garnish with lime zest, cilantro or mint ( or both), optional crispy shallots, toasted coconut or peanuts, chili threads ( or flakes) and an extra drizzle of coconut milk, if you like.
  9. Notes- Crispy Shallots, Kefir lime leaves and Chili threads can all be found at Asian markets– and no, these are not essential, but add a nice touch. 🙂
