Mushroom Miso Soup With Grilled Bok Choy

Though many people think I’m the only cook in the house, my mom actually makes dinner most nights because I am usually busy doing work in my room around that time. Most of my cooking is done during the daytime simply because the sunlight is more optimal for filming and photography. A few weeks ago, I walked into the kitchen at dinner time to a deep savory scent wafting up into my nose, and my mouth instantly began to water. My mom told me she was playing around in the kitchen with some ingredients we had on hand and whipped up this rich miso soup in under an hour. We sat down, and all devoured our bows of soup. Not only was it packed with flavor but super filling from the noodles, chicken, and bok choy.
I knew I had to share this creation with you all, so I wrote down her process then Eitan’ized it by adding in the wild mushrooms and sriracha. The result is a soup that is just flavorful and filling as it is beautiful to look at! It’s perfect for a busy weeknight that’s literally a meal in a bowl that comes together in an hour!
