Often found in Asian cuisine, bok choy is low-calorie, easy to handle and rich in antioxidants. Packed with vitamins A, C and K, this leafy ‘Chinese cabbage‘ is available in most grocery stores year-round (although some say it’s best in the winter), as well as optimally nutritious and adds a hearty consistency to foods like soup. Let’s take a look at what the best recipes of bok choy soup are:
This is a gorgeous soup incorporating golden turmeric, lots of garlic, ginger and five full stalks of bok choy (or the full package of the recommended pre-sorted blend). You’ll want to serve this in pretty bowls.
This one’s simple as well, especially if you’ve got any leftover ramen packages around. A spicy and fragrant broth simmers while you sautee your bok choy – and you can feel free to substitute egg noodles (or homemade ramen) if you’d prefer them over store-bought processed ramen (some don’t consider processed ramen ‘healthy’ regardless of what it’s served alongside.) Enjoy!
Get a good, heavy dose of your dark leafy greens here! Another beautiful soup to serve in nice-looking bowls (this one’s pureed until it’s a smooth and brilliant green.) You can probably leave the halloumi (sheep cheese) out of this one to keep it vegan, though – or use a different type of cheese if you prefer.
Simple to assemble, good for either vegetarians or vegans, and this site walks you through each step with pictures of the ingredients used along the way. Flavorful with a variety of textures, this tasty blend is best when served together.
