Mushroom Bok Choy Soup


I thought of this healthy and delicious recipe when my wife was sick and craving a nice flavorful brothy soup to help make her feel better. It really did the trick! She's asked me to make it several times since then.

Prep Time:

Cook Time:
7 mins
Total Time:
22 mins
6 cups


  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

  • 1 head bok choy, chopped

  • 1 pound white and crimini mushrooms, cut into quarters

  • 4 green onions, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic, or more to taste

  • 8 slices fresh ginger, quartered

  • ¼ cup lime juice

  • 7 cups chicken broth

  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Heat butter in a stock pot over medium heat; add bok choy, mushrooms, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Sprinkle mushroom mixture with lime juice; cook and stir just until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, pour in chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Serve with cilantro.

Cook's Notes:

My wife and I like the mushrooms in a little bigger chunks but you can cut or slice them any size you like or leave them whole. Portobello mushrooms would work well for this recipe, too.

If you want a thinner, less robust soup, try adding a little water. My wife and I however felt it took away from the great flavor of this soup.
