  1. Heat the ghee or oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and salt and sauté until the shallots are soft, about 4-6 minutes.
  2. Add in the green curry paste with 2 tablespoons of the coconut milk. Sauté for 1-2 minutes, then stir in the zucchini, mushrooms and lemongrass and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining coconut milk and the broth and let everything come up to a boil, then lower heat to the lowest setting and cook for five additional minutes. Remove from heat, and if using tofu add to the dish now. Add in lime juice.
  4. Add a scoop of rice in each serving bowl and ladle soup over it. Sprinkle with fresh basil and nuts and enjoy!
