About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Golden Turmeric Chicken Noodle Soup


chicken noodle soup
Ingredients for 6 servings

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1lb Rotisserie chicken, meat only with NO skin
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot flour (optional)
  • 1 cup pinot grigio (optional)
  • 64oz no salt added chicken broth
  • 1 chicken stock bouillon cube (optional)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 10 oz egg noodles
  • sea salt & cracked pepper to taste
  1. Set a heavy pot (dutch oven) on medium high heat.  Once hot add oil and onions and saute for 2 – 3 minutes until the onions begin to lightly brown and turn translucent.  Then add garlic, turmeric, cumin, celery, carrots and chicken.  “Bloom” the spices (or cook everything together) for 2 minutes until fragrant.  If you would like a thicker soup, add the arrowroot as well.
  2. Add the chicken broth – and bouillon cube if you prefer a richer flavor – and bring to a light simmer.  If you would like, add the pinot as well at this point.  Once it is simmering, add the bay leaves.  Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot (with a heavy lid) and cook for 35 – 40 minutes.
  3. Add the egg noodles and cook for 6 – 8 minutes, or until the noodles are completely cooked.
  4. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper.  Serve immediately while hot but save some for the next day since “day old” soup is even better because the flavors have more time to meld together!
