Easy Coconut Lemongrass Soup w/ Veggies & Tofu

Lemongrass is such a unique and gorgeous flavor, but it can be an intimidating ingredient. I recently discovered finely chopped lemongrass in frozen paste form in my local Asian market, which has been a game changer. Just toss a spoonful of it into the soup and you’re done!
