Raw Coconut Bok Choy Spicy Soup

It started raining late last night. Liquid silver falling from the sky. Some would say, liquid gold when you take into account the drought we have been having in California. It has been unseasonably warm, and horribly dry. Hills that are normally emerald green this time of year are a dusty brown. People who make their living from the land are in dire straights while every day we look at azure blue skies without a cloud in sight. . .until last night. 

The rain finally started to fall. The fresh smelling air drifted in through the windows and a long, soaking rain delighted our ears. It rained all night and we awoke to grey skies, fog, and moisture. The eucalyptus grove that yesterday only offered shade, smelled like nature’s spa as we walked through this morning. It is cold and wet and we are happy.  

With the rest of the country still seeing frigid temperatures and snow, while we have damp, cold weather in the Bay area, a batch of soup is just the thing to chase away the chill. You will love this warm, hearty, delicious, healthy raw soup.

Bok choy is the heart of this savory soup. I love bok choy. It is full of nutrients. Wonder where to get calcium? Bok choy has 110 mg per cup. It is also loaded with vitamins C, A and K, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron. And did I mention it tastes great?

For this recipe I used baby bok choy. It is tender and has a light sweetness to it. But I didn’t just chop it up and throw it in the soup…I marinated it and tossed it in the dehydrator for a bit. It provided the perfect touch. Marinated mushrooms and a wonderful coconut broth combined with cumin, ginger, turmeric and the bok choy make a healthy soup perfect for this weather. I suggest warming the soup gently on the stove or in the dehydrator to take off the winter chill.

I have to say this soup was absolutely fabulous! We loved it and can’t wait to make it again. It was easy, and so full of flavor. We love Bok Choy so much that I doubled that and the mushrooms too. Thank you for such a wonderful website you are Amazing!

What can I substitute the Thai coconut meat and milk with. Not available in stores. Can’t wait to make this soup?

This Bok Choy and Coconut soup was to die for! Even my non-raw husband loved it. Thank you!

This looked so good that I had to try it. I don’t prescribe to a raw diet so I modified it to be a more traditional cooked soup. Still super yummy! It has a very hearty, healthy feel to it – must be all that ginger and turmeric!
