Ingredients

    2 cups chicken broth (or water or vegetable broth)
    2 inch piece of fresh ginger unpeeled, but chopped
    6 green onions, finely chopped
    4 small red chilies, seeded finely chopped (I like it hot so I leave the seeds in)
    2 lemon grass stalks, chopped
    1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
    1 bunch cilantro, leaves reserved, stalks and roots finely chopped
    juice of 1 lime
    3 Tbsp fish sauce - it was a little salty for me but my hubby loved it
    1 can (14 oz) light coconut milk
    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

Heat together the broth, ginger, onions, chilies, lemongrass and garlic. Simmer gently for 30 minutes. Add cilantro roots and stalks, lime juice, fish sauce, and coconut milk. Simmer gently for 5 minutes. Strain (this is very important!) and return to the pan. Finely chop the cilantro leaves and add them to the soup with the cream. Warm through and serve over 1/2 package Trader Joe's thai style lime pilaf. Garnish with 7 shrimp on the top. For those of you who don't do carbs its easy to leave out the rice. Yum Yum!!
