Kellyann Petrucci, the author of a new cookbook, "Dr. Kellyann's Bone Broth Cookbook," shared her green soup recipe. Petrucci says it's a "great go-to soup when you’re in a hurry and want a big surge of energy."

"And if anyone in your family is under the weather, this is the very best medicine," Petrucci added.


  • 4–6 cups Chicken Bone Broth (see recipe here) or chicken stock
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1–2 large leeks, white parts only, washed thoroughly and thinly sliced
  • 3 heads baby bok choy, each cut into 6–8 wedges
  • ¼ teaspoon Celtic or pink Himalayan salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    In a 2-quart pot, bring the broth to a simmer over medium heat. Add the turmeric, garlic, and leeks and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the bok choy and season with salt and pepper; stir. Simmer for about 2 minutes more.

    Once the bok choy is tender and bright green, serve immediately.
