[Food Series] Bok Choy and Shiitake Mushroom Soup

Last month we took the baby to Underwood Family Farms and came back with a bounty of bok choy, so I went online in search of a new recipe and stumbled upon a 10 minute soup recipe that is bursting with flavor and loaded with nutrition! I took some creative cooking liberties by adding fresh cilantro and cutting down on the stock by half. I have to say that it is now one of my top 5 favorite soups of all time!! Enjoy!

2 cups of sodium free chicken stock
2 cups of beef stock
4 cups of water
6 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms (about 10 large), stemmed, caps sliced
2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
1/3 cup of fresh cilantro (de-stemmed)
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon chili oil
3 cups roughly chopped bok choy
4 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 chopped green onions

In a large pot, bring broth, water, mushrooms and ginger to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.
Add fish sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and chili oil and simmer 2 minutes.
Add bok choy and simmer until bok choy is tender, about 3 minutes.
Stir in rice vinegar.
Ladle soup into bowls.
Sprinkle with green onions and cilantro and devour!


  1. This sounds great, thanks! Soup is my favorite food.

    1. My pleasure Summer! I'm slightly obsessed with soup! haha I actually used this same base (sans stocks) to do a mahi mahi thai fish stew last night. It was sooooo yummy!
