MetPro Serving Breakdown:
Veggie Carbs = 2.5 (Basic: 37.5g veggie carbs)
Protein = .5 (Basic: 7.5g protein)
Protein comes to 1.5 (22.5g) if shrimp or chicken is added
Fat = .5 (Basic: 7.5g fat)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 leek, diced
- 1 cup bok choy, chopped
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 scallions, chopped
- 8 oz pack of shiitake mushrooms
- 16.9 oz carton of chicken bone broth*
- 1 cup regular broth or water
- 1 package of zucchini noodle spirals or 2 spiralized zucchinis
- Optional: 4 oz of cooked chicken or 6 oz of cooked shrimp
1.) Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add leeks, bok choy, garlic and half of the scallions, saute until fragrant (about 2-4 minutes). Add mushrooms and saute another 5-10 minutes, until soft and tender. Add broth and 1 cup water to the pot, lower heat to a simmer.
2.) Cover and let sit for 10 minutes or until heated through.
3.) Once the soup is heated, separate zucchini spirals into two bowls and then add half the soup to each bowl along with shrimp or chicken, if adding to the recipe. Let sit for 2-3 minutes to soften the zucchini spirals before eating.
If you do not add chicken or shrimp, pair this with your favorite protein (and carb if you have it) to make it a complete meal!
*If you don’t like bone broth, you can sub for regular broth but you will have to subtract the ½ protein. You will also lose some of the nutrient density of this soup that comes from the bone broth
