Cut your tofu into cubes and if you are using chicken or beef, do the same. Season to taste and saute until cooked through. Add in your mushrooms, onions and garlic and sprinkle a bit of soy sauce in the pan. Cook until onions are wilted and mushrooms are soft and pliable.
In a large pot, pour your stock in and bring to a boil, then add in your coconut cream and milk. Bring to a second boil and then add in your tofu, mushrooms, onions & garlic mix. Simmer and stir occasionally. Pour in your soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger, peppers and lemongrass.
Once the soup simmers for 20 minutes, add in your cilantro & you can either boil your noodles separately or add the hard noodles into your boiling soup.
Sit down with your chopsticks and a spoon to slurp your soup & enjoy!

So to celebrate that greatness, we put together this list of the most defining Black pop culture moments of 2015. And don’t worry: <a href="http://hellobeautiful.com/2015/12/08/rachel-dolezal-interview/" target="_blank">Rachel Dolezal </a>is nowhere to be seen.
