Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot.
Add the shallot and saute until tender.
Add the fresh lemongrass and garlic.
Let it saute until fragrant.
Add the red curry paste and mix.
Place everything in a food processor or blender and puree until it's a paste, then put it back in the pot.

Simmer until the vegetables soften.
Add the broccoli and cauliflower.
Cover and simmer until everything softens, adding water if necessary to cover the vegetables.
