Bok Choy & Tofu Soup

  • 1 large head bok choy, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 Tbs fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • 1 block tofu, cubed & steamed
  • 1 cup rice, cooked (optional)
  • Toppings: sliced jalapeƱo, cilantro, chopped scallions


  1. Begin by preparing your vegetables and tofu. We decided to cook rice to add to the soup and used a steamer basket to steam the tofu that way.
  2. Another option to steam tofu is a double boiler on the stove.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large pot, set heat to medium-high and add the sesame oil.
  4. Once hot, add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook together for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Then, add the soy sauce, a splash of vegetable broth, and the seasonings. Stir together for another 4 minutes.
  6. Add in the mushrooms and stir for 2 minutes.
  7. Next, add the remainder of the vegetable broth.
  8. Bring the soup to a low boil, then add the bok choy and broccoli. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid, and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Once your tofu has been steamed, add it to the soup.
  10. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. After the bok choy has wilted, your soup is ready.
  11. Serve with desired toppings and enjoy!
