Chicken Soup with Baby Bok Choy

This is a variation of my standard chicken soup recipe with baby Bok Choy added at the end. I make large batches of soup and freeze it for future use. Makes a quick and nourishing meal when I don’t have time to cook.

Other variations of this soup: 1) omit bok choy and sdd 2 cups of peeled tomatoes, 1 chopped green pepper, and 2 or 3 cups of sliced okra.

2) Same as variation 1, but substitute chunks of zuccini and yellow squash for Okra.

Serves: 4-6

2 qt filtered water
2 lb bony organic chicken pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1/3 to 1/2 organic brown rice, rinsed
2 or more cups chopped organic celery
2 or more cups chopped organic carrots
2 or more cups chopped baby Bok Choy
Salt and pepper to taste

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Bring water to boil and add chicken parts, onion, about 2 tsp salt and a bit of black pepper. Simmer for hours. I let it cook overnight.
  2. Strain out chicken and bones and return broth to pot. Optional: if you want pieces of chicken in your soup, add a couple of meaty pieces now. Cook about 30 min. at simmer before adding rice and vegetables.
  3. Add brown rice and bring to simmer, then add carrots and celery. Cook on low heat for about 45 min to 1 hour, until rice is becoming tender.
  4. Add bok choy and adjust salt and pepper to taste. Simmer until greens are tender.

Another delicious variation of this soup is to substitute green beans and snap peas for the green vegetable and to add a large bunch of chopped cilantro leaves just before turning off the heat.
