Bok Choy Hot Pot Soup

June 22, 2017

from EatingWell.com

  • 5¼ cups vegetable broth, or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4¼-inch-thick slices fresh ginger, peeled
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1¾ cups shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, wiped clean and sliced (4 ounces)
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • 1 small bok choy, cut into ½-inch pieces, stems and greens separated
  • 3½ ounces Chinese wheat noodles, or rice sticks (see Ingredient note)
  • 1 14-ounce package firm tofu, drained, patted dry and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 cup grated carrots, (2 large)
  • 4-6 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Combine broth, ginger and garlic in a Dutch oven; bring to a simmer. Simmer, partially covered, over medium-low heat for 15 minutes. Discard the ginger and garlic.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add bok choy stems; cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the mushroom mixture to the broth. Add noodles, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 3 minutes. Add bok choy greens and tofu; simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in carrots, vinegar to taste, soy sauce and sesame oil. Serve garnished with scallions.
  • Ingredient Note: Chinese wheat noodles and rice sticks (dried rice noodles) are quick-cooking and can be found in the Asian-food section of your supermarket.
