Delicious Chicken Turmeric Soup

DELICIOUS CHICKEN TURMERIC SOUP

With it being so cold lately I’ve been craving homemade chicken turmeric soup, but decided to change up my usual recipe. I have to say that I was not disappointed! This soup itself is awesome, I decided to top mine with rice, a little fresh coriander, and a wedge of lime.

Ingredients
 1 Onion
 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
 1 tbsp Ginger, Grated
 2 tbsp Olive Oil
 ½ tbsp Turmeric
 ½ tsp Cumin
 1 Pinch Chilli Flakes
 225 g Carrots (about 4)

 1 Handful fresh coriander
 1 Lime

Method
1

Chop the onion, mince the garlic, and grate the ginger.

2

Add the onion, garlic, and ginger to a large soup pot with the olive oil and sauté until the onions are soft.

3

While the onion, garlic, and ginger are sautéing, peel and chop the carrots, and chop the celery.

4

Once the onions are soft, add the turmeric, cumin, and chilli flakes. Sauté for approximately a minute to just toast the spices.

5

Add the carrots and celery and cook until they begin to soften.

6

Add the chicken breast to the pot along with the chicken stock.

7

Place the lid on the pot, turn the heat up to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium-low, and let it simmer for 30 minutes.

8

Once simmered for 30 minutes, remove the chicken breast and shred it with two forks. Return the shredded chicken to the soup and add the coconut milk.

9

Stir to combine and heat through over a low heat.
