Chicken Vegetable Turmeric SoupEven though it is still cold here in the North, Spring is just around the corner; I promise! Soups are still in order in my kitchen but one that is detoxifying is screaming to be made! My Chicken Vegetable Turmeric Soup is just the ticket! The warming spices in this soup still keep us comforted but also cleanse and detoxify us! The added organic chicken and vegetables with udon, soba or quinoa make my Chicken Vegetable Turmeric Soup a main entrée to segue into spring! Feel free to make it vegan by omitting the chicken or use tofu as a protein substitute. 

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or ghee(I use a combination of both)

1 organic onion, peeled and cut up

2 tablespoons minced garlic or fresh cloves, minced

1&1/2 tablespoons ginger paste

1 teaspoon Thai red curry paste

1 teaspoon each whole cumin seed and cumin powder

1 teaspoon coriander powder

1 teaspoon whole mustard seed

1/2-3/4 teaspoon Kashmiri red pepper powder or cayenne

3-4 tablespoons turmeric powder

Himalayan salt to taste

Organic chicken wings, cubed breast or thigh pieces(use  as much as you like)

3+ cups water

4 cups unsalted chicken or vegetable broth

4-5 organic carrots, scrubbed and cut up

3/4 bunch organic celery, chopped

1/2 organic green cabbage, sliced

1 cup dry mushroom medley or fresh shiitake, sliced

2 organic green onions, chopped

1 bunch organic flat parsley, roughly chopped

2 bundles organic udon or soba noodles, broken in half or 1 cup quinoa 

In a large stock pot heat the oil to medium high

Add onion and garlic, stir fry for a minute or so

Stir in the ginger and curry pastes

Add in all the spices and stir until fragrant, about a minute

Add in the chicken, brown a bit

Now stir in both the water and broth

Add the carrots, celery, cabbage, mushrooms and green onion

Reduce to low simmer and cook for 35-40 minutes

Finally add the parsley and broken noodles(or quinoa)

Remove from heat as the noodles will cook in the hot broth

Ladle the Chicken Vegetable Turmeric Soup in deep bowls and enjoy!!
