  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 leeks, washed and chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 ounce dried mushrooms, rinsed
  • 1 head garlic, peeled and halved
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 3-inch strip lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup white miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander


Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.

Add the leeks, carrots, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add 1½ gallons water, then add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook for 2½ hours. 

Strain into a large bowl and discard the solids.
