Notes
*To use fresh lemongrass, follow these instructions:
1 - Chop off the ends of the lemongrass, and peel off the outer layers of skin until you reach the more fleshy layers inside.
2 - Finely chop the lemongrass into rounds, working from the bottom up, and stopping when you get ⅔ of the way up.
3 - Place these rounds into a food processor and pulse until fine
4 - Use this in place of essential oils, but make sure to to add in with the rest of the soup ingredients so it has time to cook and soften up.
