2 tablespoons nama shoyu
2 cups water
handful of enoki mushrooms
4 grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
1 stalk lemongrass, sliced into ½ inch pieces
small knob of ginger, peeled and sliced into four thick slices
1 red chili, seeded and sliced thin
handful of wakame seaweed
handful of garlic cress

Asparagus are incredibly refreshing in the heat of summer, and this soup is great hot for lunch or cold for a picnic at the beach.
