Bok Choy Noodle Soup

My husband has brought two bok choy bunches as he want to try these leafy vegetable from many days.This Bok choy also known as Chinese cabbage is a good source of vitamin A and C. On go-ogling  for its recipes I found this recipe interesting and has made soup with it.It is not only comforting soup in cold weather but also acts as good natural remedy against cold flu or bug.

Vegetable stock-2cups
Rice noodles-120gm
Ginger grated-1tsp
Soft tofu-Nearly 1/4 package  made into medium sized cubes
Bok choy-1bunch chopped into bite sized pieces and vegetables of your choice(I have used red capsicum and snow peas)
Soy sauce-2tbsp
Coconut milk-1/2 cup
Fresh Basil-1/4 cup
Chilly sauce-2tbsp
Salt to taste


  1. Cook noodles according to instructions and keep them aside
  2. Place stock in soup pan together with bok choy, ginger and all the vegetables.
  3. Brig it to boil and simmer it till all the vegetables are cooked.
  4. Now add coconut  milk and stir it well 
  5. Add  the tofu.gently stirring so that tofu does not fall apart.
  6. Now add chilly sauce.
  7. Finally add salt and do the taste test.
  8. For serving pour several ladles of soup over each bowl of noodles.Sprinkle fresh basil leaves over each bowl.

Be careful while adding salt because soy sauce also contains salt. If the soup has become salty add some lime juice.
Pad thai noodles are the best noodles for this soup.
