Lemongrass Chicken Soup
Cut trimmed and peeled lemongrass stalks into 3 to 4 inch pieces. Cut each piece in half lengthwise. Tie the lemongrass into a bundle with cotton twine. Combine broth, lemongrass, sliced shiitake mushrooms and pepper in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat immediately and simmer, uncover for ten minutes.
Remove the lemongrass bundle from the broth. Add the asparagus and chicken. Simm for another 3 minutes or until heated through. Asparagus should be crisp but tender. Remove from heat, add green onions. Divide among four bowls and garnish with fresh chopped basil. (optional)
* Button mushrooms may be substituted for the shiitake mushrooms.
