Feeling under the weather? Your throat soothing, immune boosting answer is here! This delicious soup is similar to a restaurant wonton soup but packed with nutrients. Homemade broth and vitamin filled Asian veggies unite to create this light, healing meal!
1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs (optional)
2 garlic cloves- minced
2 green onions- chopped
2 carrots- thin coin sized slices
1 large celery stalk- thin sliced
1 cup (4 oz) mushrooms- shitake, baby portabella, oyster, whichever you prefer
2 cups bok choy- rough chopped stems and leaves
2 cups napa cabbage- rough chopped
4 cups homemade Immune Boosting Bone Broth
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1/2 – 1 tsp fish sauce
2 –4 tsp coconut aminos (not SCD legal- see notes)
salt/pepper to taste
- Heat 1/2 Tbsp olive oil in a large pot.
- Cut chicken thighs into bite sized pieces and saute.
- Remove chicken from pot and set aside in a bowl.
- Deglaze with a little chicken broth. (Don’t throw away that yummy flavor!). Save the liquid and yummy chicken bits in the bowl with chicken for later.
- Add a Tbsp olive oil to the same pot.
- Saute garlic and green onion for 60 seconds.
- Add carrots, celery and mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes until they begin to soften.
- Add chicken and deglazing liquid, bok choy, napa cabbage, bone broth, sesame oil, fish sauce and coconut aminos to the pot. (See note on coconut aminos if following strict SCD)
- Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes until all of the veggies have reached your desired level of doneness.
- Taste broth and add more sauces, salt and pepper if necessary.
- Garnish with parsley and enjoy!
If following a strict SCD diet, do not use coconut aminos. Instead, add a little extra salt and a bit (1 tsp) of honey if you desire that bit of sweetness that coconut aminos provides.
Because all broths are different, start with only 1/2 tsp fish sauce and 2 tsp coconut aminos as they are very salty. You can always add more!
