1 garlic bulb smashed
1 chilli pepper roughly chopped (with seeds)
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger roughly chopped (with skin)

A bunch of fresh corriander or other herb of your choice

Simply add everything to a large pot. Bring to a boil then simmer, with the lid on, for about an hour.
Once everything has been cooked down, strain the liquid into a large bowl.
Serve immediately with some fresh herbs, for decoration or cool for later. It also freezes well.
*Coconut aminos can be very salty, depending on what brand you use so taste before adding any additional salt.
