Chinese Bok Choy Soup and many Asian style soups are easy to prepare and require a minimum of ingredients.
Although this soup sounds much like one of our favorite Chinese soups, the ingredients are somewhat different.
Different mushrooms, different broth, different way to prepare the meat.
Keep your pantry stocked with basic ingredients for Chinese recipes:
Ginger Grater. Perfect for peeling, slicing, grating and juicing fresh gingerSweese 3602 Porcelain Grater Plate – for Ginger, Garlic and Onion, 4 inches & WhiteFood Grater for Ginger, Mini Ginger Grater for Garlic, Fruits and Root Vegetables
I always have these fresh ingredients on hand for all recipes but they are very commonly used in Chinese food.
I only buy the large bok choy as needed. For soups, I slice the green part of the napa cabbage or bok choy, not the stringy white stems. Baby bok choy (easy to grow in a veggie garden) is not as stringy and, once steamed, can be eaten whole. I love them braised then sautéed in butter until golden.
This quick and easy soup can be prepared with any broth. I found mushroom broth and figured it would only intensify the flavors.
It did but you can all select the Mushroom & Chicken bone broth from Kettle & Fire® (want to think they had that one made just for my recipe!) for extra protein or an organic chicken broth or straight up
Mushroom Broth adds flavor to soups with savory mushrooms, garlic and sea salt.Sample Pack, Keto Diet, Paleo Friendly, Whole 30 Approved, Gluten Free, with CollagenOrganic Chicken Bone Broth; Gluten-free, Dairy-free, no MSG. No salt or sugar added.
Why do I focus on organic? It’s gluten-free and vegan for Mom’s special diet. Many come in low-sodium choices. Bone broth in recipes adds much-needed protein.
The Organic mushroom broth had 460 mg of sodium per carton. If you want to lower the sodium level, use low-sodium chicken broth. I've used broth with as little as 95 mg. of sodium per 32 oz. carton. Use extra pepper to season or a dash of hot sesame or spicy Szechuan oil.
