Make Your Own: Bok Choy Soup

I can only handle so much stir-fry every week, so after the third week in a row of receiving bok choy in our CSA pickup, I decided it was time to branch out and make something else.


I made this awesome soup and separately boiled some ramen noodles to add to each bowl. Mmmmm!



Bok Choy Chicken Soup

This easy Chinese recipe allows you to get all the nutritional benefits of bok choy in a simple, flavorful soup. Feel free to increase the nutritional value by using homemade chicken broth, or adding cooked chicken or raw, peeled shrimp.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 10 leaves bok choy, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled, chopped

Preparation:

Bring the chicken broth to boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the seasonings (the red pepper flakes, soy sauce, Asian sesame oil), and the chopped garlic.

Add the bok choy. Simmer for up to 10 minutes, until the bok choy leaves turn dark green and are wilted and tender. Serves 4 to 5.
