Sweet Potato and Bok Choy Soup

I wanted a bok choy recipe because bok choy is one of the most nutrient-dense foods out there. I first tried a bok choy stir-fry with a ginger vinaigrette–yuck. This soup recipe is courtesy of a new friend in my Vegan Support Group, and beautifully highlights the bok choy flavor without being in-your-face. I think the red pepper flakes make a big difference. Thanks, Laura!
