  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.

I made this as directed, only doubled it. I really liked it, but my husband didn't finish his bowl and said "I'm glad you like it- you have lots of leftovers to eat." He said he didn't like the ...

This was excellent. I only omitted the cilantro and put the green onions on top when it was done. I am on a keto diet so I added some heavy cream at the end. Will definitely make this again.

I made the soup for six serving when it’s only for me and my delicious! All the flavors come together very well. Highly recommend.

Overall a good recipe with a nice flavor profile (although my wife found it a bit too spicy). I added a few tablespoons of soy sauce because (a) I thought it needed some salt and (b) it seemed l...

Loved the flavor combo of ginger root and lime. I halved the recipe and added the juice of 1/2 juicy lime. Still added 5 slices ginger that I julienned. Almost tossed in some red pepper flake...

This soup is absolutely delicious and very easy to make! The only change I would make is to add more vegetables. I had to send this recipe to my friends who raved about it when I made it for ...

This was an absolutely delicious recipe! I would definitely make it again. If you wanted to add a little more to the soup, I think tofu would be a nice touch.

I used two limes and may of had to much, after I got past the pucker of the lime juice, it was great! I didn't have green onions, was not going out to get more. But it was real good and filling!

One of my favorite soups to make! And you can't really mess it up!
