  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Rinse shrimp and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. Diagonally slice the whole green onions into 1-inch-long pieces, keeping white parts separate from green tops. Set green tops aside.
  2. In a large nonstick saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add white parts of the green onions, carrot and mushrooms; cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add ginger and garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Add chicken broth, water, soybeans, soy sauce and, if desired, crushed red pepper to mushroom mixture. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes or just until carrot is tender.
  3. Add shrimp and pea pods and/or bok choy to saucepan. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Stir in green onion tops just before serving. If desired, garnish with slivered green onions.
