I totally made this fantastic quick soup up two weeks ago when I sneezed my way into the kitchen. Starving and opening lots of cupboard doors I found myself reaching out to these simple ingredients that created this fast immune boosting soup. I can tell you that I managed to finish the pot all by myself! I must have been really hungry or it is just too delicious to share! This soup is so light yet filing it’s amazing.
Bok Choy is a Chinese cabbage that I usually find in stir-fry but it is wonderful in soups. It is packed with vitamin C and K, Iron and Potassium. It antioxidants and immune boosting properties are so high it is seen as one of the super vegetables. Just don’t over cook it and lose all of its goodness, plus you cook the entire vegetable so you don’t waste anything.
I wanted some carbohydrates so I added the potato and I threw in the mushrooms because I love them. You can leave them out if you like. Since the key ingredients are Bok Choy and turmeric.
I don’t need to tell you how important turmeric is. Come on we all know about this super root right?
Have fun making this super quick soup and the wonderful thing about this is you can add whatever you want, just do not over pack the soup with ingredients, otherwise you will lose a lot of flavour and goodness in Bok-Choy.
