Thai Coconut Chicken Soup


  • 2 quarts broth – 1 quart vegetable stock and 1 quart coconut broth. You could substitute chicken broth as well.
  • 1 stalk lemongrass
  • 3 inch piece ginger root, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and halved. If you want to bring more heat, leave the seeds. If you want even more heat, add or substitute hotter peppers.
  • 3 limes halved
  • 1 lb boneless chicken thighs cubed
  • 1 14.5 oz can coconut milk
  • 3 cups Cremini or Button mushrooms, quartered (cut to bite size pieces)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and cut into ¼ inch coins
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into ¼ inch coins
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped



In a large pot, bring the broth, lemongrass, ginger, shallot, jalapeno, and the lime halves to a boil.


Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes.


Strain the mixture and return to the pot. Add the chicken, coconut milk, mushrooms, bell pepper, parsnip, carrot, and salt to the pot.


Cook on medium-high heat until the root vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.


Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the cilantro.


Variations include substituting the chicken with shrimp and/or scallops.
