I bought bok choy with no idea how to use it. Threw it in a simple chicken and veggie soup, and the family loved it! 4 cans low-sodium chicken broth can be substituted for the 6 cups water and chicken base.

Very good! I kept thinking I needed to add pepper or something but I didn't and it turned out great. My husband added sriracha to his though. Read More

Everyone in the family loved this soup. It has more flavor than I expected. I made a half batch but wish I made a full one for leftovers. I used 32 oz of chicken broth for the half batch instead of the water and bouillon. I kept everything else the same. Will definitely be making this again soon. Read More

I had some smaller heads of Pak Choi growing in a raised bed that was free but I had no idea what to do with it. I substituted 3 small heads of that used 4 large Idaho potatoes cubed about 5 chives diced and the onion bulbs from the chives as a substitute for the full sized onion. The rest I did double but the same for carrots/celery/garlic and chicken. Boy did it turn out delicious and since most of the stuff was growing in my garden cheap! My boyfriend gave it a rave review as well. Read More

Ok so this was super easy to make and I had some Bok Choy that I was dying to get rid of as well as other veggies so I decided to give it a whirl. I added mushrooms and bought a whole chicken already prepared from the market (3month old keeps me VERY busy lol) and all I had to do was shred it off the bone and throw in the pot. I really enjoyed the soup and def is worth making. A little on the sweet side for some reason I think I would throw in a little squeeze of fresh lemon just for a little zing. So all in all very good. Not 5 star good but def woth the 4 stars. My husband says the same thing. Happy Eating people!!!! xoxo Read More

We had some bok choy that needed to be eaten so we gave this a try. It was amazing. Even my picky 16-month old loved it. Only downside is it's a lot of veggies to chop when you have a toddler hanging on your leg! Read More
