Tofu and Bok Choy Soup is my recipe of the day with Soup Swappers. We post monthly with our favorite new soup recipes. This month the topic is on cabbage soups, which includes, of course, cabbage. But also  other forms, such as kale, bok choy, napa,  Brussels Sprouts, kimchi and even sauerkraut.

Tofu and Bok Choy Soup

I decided  to post my recipe for tofu and bok choy soup. It’s vegan and can be used as a light vegan lunch.

Often I will serve this as a first course in a Chinese meal. It’s light and brothy, which can help offset any heavier fried  foods, or meaty stir-fries.

The tofu is  light and silky with a smooth texture that picks up the flavors of the other ingredients.

  1. This may be my first course come Chinese New Year….that is if the world opens up and we can celebrate Chinese New Year come February.

  2. I have been reading about Chinese pickled vegetables lately, it seems there is some rivalry with kimchi over them. It all looks so delicious!

  3. I’ll definitely have to try out this soup recipe. It’s still a little chilly where I’m at, so it will be nice to have some soup on hand when I’m looking to warm up.
