Andrea’s Magical Healing Broth

healing brothThis morning’s soup is what I call my Magical Healing Broth:
Into 16 oz of low sodium chicken broth, drop a thumbsized piece of ginger sliced thin (will remove later), one stalk of lemongrass chopped into one inch pieces (will remove later), 2 keffir lime leaves chopped and a tsp of tamarind paste. Heat to a rolling simmer for 20 minutes, then drain the liquid into another pot to remove all the sticks and grasses.  It’s just the broth you’re making here. After straining you can add veggies and carcass.
Before serving, add:
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 capful rice wine vinegar
1 capful low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp chili garlic sauce

A pinch of sugar if it’s too sour.
