Summer Bok Choy and Lentil Soup

Whether in a salad, soup or stir-fry, bok choy is just the bomb!  Plus it's high in folate, vitamin C, potassium and vitamin B-6 making it a hearty healthy superfood!  I love this soup because it takes less than 15 minutes to make and my kids devour it!  Feel free to swap out the veggies in this recipe with anything you might already have on hand!
