For a vegetarian version, omit the cooked chicken and use a vegetable stock instead of the chicken stock. You could also vary the vegetables, but be sure to allow for their different cooking times. Try shredded white cabbage instead of bok choy and snow peas instead of thin green beans. Sliced zucchini, Swiss chard, a small quantity of com kernels, or even a little diced eggplant would also be good in this soup.
