Singapore Hot Pot

A simple vegetable or chicken broth can be turned into a flavorful soup with the addition of your favorite vegetables or protein. If serving to multiple tastes, have cooked, thinly sliced beef, chicken or shrimp in small bowls so that each person can add their own. This soup is perfect for anyone following a Whole30, Paleo, Gluten free or Keto diet.

  • 2 quarts chicken broth (or vegetable)
  • zest and juice of one or two lemons or limes
  • 2-3 cloves of minced or sliced garlic (more if desired)
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger or more
  • 2 Tablespoons Asian sesame oil
  • Any combination of vegetables you choose such as:
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 stalks celery thinly sliced diagonally
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 head Baby bok choy (or spinach)
  • 4 ounces snow peas sliced diagonally (add last)
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced diagonally (add last)
  • 4 ounces bean sprouts (add last)
  • Thai Fish sauce to taste
  • Sesame oil
  • Shirataki noodles


  • Bring broth to a boil in a large sauce pan. Season broth with juice and zest of lemon or lime, fresh ginger and minced or sliced onions. Then add vegetables from firm to soft, starting with onions, carrots, celery, bok choy and mushrooms. Simmer gently until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • If serving protein separately, (beef, chicken, shrimp or tofu) cook and place in separate bowls. If not, feel free to add to the soup, cooking until meat is done. 
  • 5 minutes before serving add sliced snow peas, green onions and bean sprouts.
  • Serve soup in large bowls with condiments on the side so that each person can season to his or her liking. Condiments can include: Asian or shirataki noodles, hot chili oil, extra lime wedges, additional sesame oil, chopped peanuts or cashews, cilantro, extra bean sprouts, fish sauce, rice vinegar, coconut aminos or soy sauce.
