  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 stalks lemongrass
  • 2 tablespoon sliced ginger peeled
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms use a mix of your favorite mushrooms
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 and ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • teaspoon ground black pepper
  • chopped cilantro for serving


  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cut off the green part of the lemongrass stalks and discard. Mince one stalk and cut the others in half.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the minced lemongrass, sliced ginger, and sautée for about 1 minute. Next, add the mushrooms and sautée for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Slightly crush the halved lemongrass stalks. Add them to the saucepan with the salt, maple syrup, and water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, stir in the lime juice and adjust seasonings if needed. Divide into serving bowls and serve warm top with chopped cilantro and a sprinkle of ground black pepper.
  • This soup will keep for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. I found it tastes even better the next day as the lemongrass has time to infuse the broth.


For a spicy version, sautée one minced chili with the lemongrass and ginger.
