  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup white (shiro) miso
  • 2 tbsp liquid aminos
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small russet potato, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 3 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 2 small celery ribs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 oz dried mushrooms (about 1 cup loosely packed)
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
  • 12 garlic gloves, crushed and peeled
  • 2 tbsp loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, thick outer layer and tops removed, tender inner bulb coarsely chopped


1. Combine all of the ingredients in a very large stockpot and add 5 quarts water. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.


2. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the broth has reduced to approximately 4 quarts, about 2 1/2 hours. Strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl. Let cool until tepid. 


3. Transfer to covered containers. Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat before serving.
