“This gem comes from the Food Network Kitchens. It's simple, very quick to prepare and has the authentic flavors of Thai cooking. I hope you enjoy this simple, flavorful soup! *For the lemongrass stalk: Remove the tough outer layers of the lemongrass stalk (usually 2 or 3 pieces) ; cut off the root end; place your knife flat against the root end and trim stalk; slice the stalk starting at the bottom and moving up until it becomes too tough and woody.*”
