Once the ingredients have been prepared, it only takes a few minutes to make this soup. Lemongrass lends a tangy citrus taste.
In medium saucepan, heat vegetable broth to a simmer with lemongrass and lime leaves if desired.
In small skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring often, about 30 seconds. When broth has simmered for 5 minutes, remove lemongrass and lime leaves and discard. Add cooked garlic and ginger to broth. Return broth to a boil, and stir in chile paste and mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms have wilted, about 30 seconds, then stir in lime juice and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and ladle soup into small bowls.
Top each bowl with chopped tomatoes, cilantro and a pinch of hot green chiles if desired. Alternatively, tomatoes and chiles can be mixed together and placed in small serving bowl for people to help themselves.
