Chinese mushroom soup

    22 min

    This soothing soup is packed with mushrooms, pak choi, garlic, lime, ginger and coriander. I like the mushrooms in big chunks but you can cut or slice them any size you like or leave them whole. Portobello mushrooms would work well for this recipe, too.

    1. Heat butter in a stock pot over medium heat; add pak choi, mushrooms, spring onions, garlic and ginger. Sprinkle mushroom mixture with lime juice; cook and stir just until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, pour in chicken stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Serve with freshly chopped coriander.

    Loved the flavor combo of ginger root and lime. I halved the recipe and added the juice of 1/2 juicy lime. Still added 5 slices ginger that I julienned. Almost tossed in some red pepper flakes before tasting. Glad I didn't. The ginger root was just right. Made homemade chicken broth and added 1 chicken thigh, chopped, to make it a main dish. Had a couple of little packets of soy sauce from take out. Put those in. Will make again. I try to incorporate different veggies every week. This recipe fit the bill. Thanks for a good recipe.  -  08 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This soup is absolutely delicious and very easy to make! The only change I would make is to add more vegetables. I had to send this recipe to my friends who raved about it when I made it for a quick lunch on a cold day.  -  08 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was an absolutely delicious recipe! I would definitely make it again. If you wanted to add a little more to the soup, I think tofu would be a nice touch.  -  27 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
