Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 1 hr 5 mins
Total: 1 hr 10 mins


  • 2 tsp sesame oil, (or peanut oil)
  • 8 cup chicken broth

  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 2 large carrots, cut into chunks
  • 2 fresh ginger, inch piece, sliced
  • 4 whole scallions, chopped
  • 10 button mushrooms, sliced thin

  1. Place a large 8-quart stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the oil and place the onion, garlic, carrots, and ginger in the pot. Sear the veggies on all sides to caramelize, making sure not to burn the garlic.
