- 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
- 3 shallots, chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 2 (14 ounce) cans coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- 1 (8 ounce) package crimini mushrooms, sliced
- 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 pound thinly sliced chicken breast meat
- 2 teaspoons red curry paste
- 3 tablespoons lime juice
- 3 tablespoons fish sauce
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 serrano chile peppers, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- 8 lime wedges
Heat the grapeseed oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the shallots and 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro in the hot pan until the shallot has softened and turned translucent, about 4 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock, coconut milk, and agave nectar; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Once the broth reaches a simmer, strain through a mesh strainer into a clean saucepan; discard the shallot and cilantro.
Return the broth to a simmer; stir in the mushrooms and broccoli and cook until the broccoli becomes tender, about 4 minutes. Add the chicken and cook until no longer pink, stirring constantly. Stir the curry paste, lime juice, and fish sauce in a small bowl to dissolve the curry paste; mix into the simmering soup.
Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with 1/2 cup cilantro, serrano peppers, green onions, and lime wedges to serve.
