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

1/21 tsp fish sauce

24 tsp coconut aminos (not SCD legal- see notes)

salt/pepper to taste


  1. Heat 1/2 Tbsp olive oil in a large pot.
  2. Cut chicken thighs into bite sized pieces and saute.
  3. Remove chicken from pot and set aside in a bowl.
  4. 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.
  5. Add a Tbsp olive oil to the same pot.
  6. Saute garlic and green onion for 60 seconds.
  7. Add carrots, celery and mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes until they begin to soften.
  8. 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)
  9. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes until all of the veggies have reached your desired level of doneness.
  10. Taste broth and add more sauces, salt and pepper if necessary.
  11. 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!
