This recipe came from a Moosewood recipe book. This flavored broth needs only some tender young bok choy or snow peas, sliced seasoned tofu, and a splash of soy sauce to become a delightful soothing, and light soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large soup pot, cover, and bring to a boil.
  2. Lower the heat simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Strain the stock and use it right away, or refrigerate in a covered container for up to 4 days, or freeze it for up to 6 months.

Simple and tasty. I served it right away with some chopped bok choy and udon noodles. Thanks for sharing!

This broth was delicious. It had so many delicate flavors and lots of umami. I cooked it for 2 hours and then added some shrimp and chicken wontons and an extra pinch of salt. I highly recommend this broth.
