100 g shiitake  

2 bell peppers 

300 g marinated tofu or smoked tofu 

1 onion 

Lemongrass (about 2 tbsp chopped) 

Foodin Extra Virgin olive oil 

2 tsp Foodin ginger powder 

2 tsp Foodin mild curry powder

1 package (330 ml) Foodin coconut milk

Slice the shiitake and chop the bell pepper and tofu into bite-size pieces. Dice the onion. 

Prepare the lemongrass by cutting off the dry ends and peeling a couple of layers. Slice the softer part into small pieces until you have about 2 tbsp chopped. 

Warm up olive oil in a saucepan and sautee the onions for a few minutes. Add the spices (including the lemongrass), mushrooms, bell peppers and tofu and mix everything together. 

Pour the vegetable broth and the coconut milk into the saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low-medium heat under a lid for about 10 minutes. Add the lemon juice and umami sauce, give the soup a stir and then taste. Add salt or other spices to taste if necessary. 

Enjoy the soup with chopped spring onion, fresh chili and curry-lemon cashews.
