For a while now I have been trying to experiment with recipes that aren’t packed with so many ingredients, and I think I am starting to create some good dishes! I am a major flavor girl, so a lot of my recipes list a whole slew of ingredients and spices. Now that I think of it, a lot of clients get intimidated by large ingredient lists, so I am going to keep experimenting with even simpler healthy recipes for the Balanced Babe community. I created a 7 ingredient bok choy soup.
I know that I have been sharing a lot of soup and stew recipes this season, but I mean come on it is so cold in Chicago that it seems to be the only meal that really warms me up. So this is my last soup recipe for the season (I promise!). I chose bok choy as the star of the show and for good reason. Bok choy is extremely low in calories, contains antioxidants that may protect against certain cancers, contains Vitamin A, C, K, iron, calcium, and potassium. Combine all these benefits with the fact that it is a cruciferous veggie (helps with weight loss), has flavonoids and selenium (help with immunity), it makes sense why this veggie is on my radar lately.
- 10 baby bok choy, bottoms slightly cut off
- 2 cups of low sodium veggie stock
- 2 cups of water
- 1 tbsp red miso paste
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 1 yellow onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- Dice the onion and garlic
- Heat up the coconut oil in a soup pan and saute the onion and garlic
- Add the broth and water, add the bok choy
- Add the miso paste and ginger
- Bring soup to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes
- Transfer to bowl and serve!
With only 7 ingredients, this recipe can be created on the fly. Even better is that there is still an abundance of flavor. Enjoy your bok choy soup!
