I’ve had a terrible week experiencing the flu. This soup is an amazing cold and flu busting bowl of comfort food. Once you taste it, you will love this delicious turmeric chicken soup recipe. In Indian homes it’s a must to have some turmeric for the cooking. However it’s often forgotten the healing benefits that it has. Turmeric:
* Reduces inflammation
* Fights free radicals
* Helps relieve arthritis
* Can help control diabetes and cholesterol
* Can help with depression
Turmeric Healing Chicken Soup
1 tsp of tumeric
2 cloves of garlic
1 small stem of ginger sliced in thick chunks
2 carrots thickly chopped
1 whole onion
1 tsp of peppercorns
1 tsp cumin
2 pieces cinnamon
1 chicken cut chopped and cleaned
2 tsp salt
4 cups of water
Place all ingredients in a large stock pot.
Allow the soup to come to a rocking boil. Then lower the temperature to a simmer. The longer the soup is allowed to cook, the more opportunity there is for the wonderful nutrients to be disseminated into the soup. I left mine to simmer for 2 hours. Once, the meat is falling off the chicken. Either remove the chicken from the pot. De boning the chicken or keep the chicken pieces as is. Now skim the fat off the top. Correct the seasoning. ( this means basically, taste the soup and see if you would need to add salt or pepper or any other seasonings. Allow the soup to simmer with the lid on.
Made too much? That’s okay. Laddle the soup into mason jars and freeze.
