Coconut Broth

Yield Makes 2 1/2 cups


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon yellow or white miso (soybean paste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

How to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add lime zest, green onions, shallots, and crushed red pepper, and mix well. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until shallots are translucent, stirring frequently to prevent browning. Reduce heat to low.

  2. Stir in coconut milk and next 3 ingredients. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes. Add cilantro just before serving.
