Recipe Redux - Spicy Bok Choy Soup

Spicy Bok Choy Soup is fast and easy.

This month for Recipe Redux we were given the challenge to show a healthy dish we are heating up with smoke and/or spiciness. I choose spiciness. It is perfect for lunch or dinner on a cold, winter day

This is an fast and easy soup that goes to together in no time. You can add as mush or as little sriracha sauce as you like.

Spicy Bok Choy Soup

3 cups bok choy
6 cups chicken broth                
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or sherry  
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
3 cloves minced garlic
3 green onions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (use both white and green parts)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sriracha sauce, or to taste
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
6 to 8 ounces dry Chinese egg noodles or soba noodles

Cut off the stem end of bok choy; separate leaves. Wash and dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces.

Combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, rice wine, ginger, garlic, and green onions in a large pot.  Season with pepper and sriracha sauce; stir the ingredients until well mixed.  Heat over medium-high heat. Once the mixture has reached a boil, add bok choy , sesame oil, and noodles. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 3 minutes or until the noodles are tender. Ladle soup into bowls.
