Healthy also means delicious in this super easy-to-make Vegan Mushroom Bok Choy Soup. Who knew just a handful of ingredients could taste so good?


  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 lb shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 lb portobello mushrooms, destemmed & sliced
  • 2 medium bok choy, cleaned and chopped
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbs white miso (optional but recommended)


  1. Dice the onion and add it to a large soup pan over med-low heat.  You can add a tablespoon of water or veg broth to prevent sticking. 
  2. While the onion is cooking, clean and destem the mushrooms and slice them into thin pieces.  Add them to the pan and continue to simmer over med-low heat.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce, occasionally stirring
  4. Cut 1/2" to 1" off the end of each Bok Choy plant and rinse them thoroughly.  Then slice the leaves into bite-sized pieces and add to the soup pan. 
  5. Add 4 cups (1 qt carton) low sodium vegetable broth and increase heat to high.
  6. Once soup begins to boil, reduce heat to low and cover. 
  7. Simmer soup for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  8. Season with salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon of white miso before serving.  Stir well to ensure the miso dissolves into the soup. 
  9. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onion if desired.
