I bought some bok choy at the Farmer’s market last Saturday. Although I had a number of salad recipes I actually looked at a bunch of conventional recipes to find something I could adapt to a raw soup.
This soup is a wonderful cool weather treat. The bouillon is key to developing a depth of flavor. I used dried mushrooms because that was what I had in the cupboard, but fresh ones would be great too. They could be marinated and dehydrated with the bok choy to give a “cooked” texture.
