*From Pamela’s new cookbook “Quicker Than Quick”

serves 6

  • 2 tsp unrefined cold-pressed olive oil
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated or thinly sliced
  • 4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1/8 tsp coriander 
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne or to taste
  • 1 tsp sea salt + more to taste (depending on saltiness of the stock)
  • A few grinds of black pepper or to taste 
  • 8 c chicken stock, vegetable broth, or miso-based stock, preferably homemade
  • (optional) cooked, shredded chicken, preferably poached ½ cup per person
  • (optional)cooked noodles (1/2 cup per person or as you prefer) or raw butternut squash noodles
  • fresh herbs like dill, parsley, or cilantro

 Heat the oil in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat. Add the carrots and celery and sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in the ginger and garlic and all the ground spices and cook until fragrant, about 60 seconds. Add salt and stock and stir to combine.  

Bring to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and cook partially covered until the vegetables are tender, about 18 to 20 minutes. If using chicken, add the cooked chicken to the pot after the soup has been simmering for 15 minutes (essentially, you are warming the chicken in the soup for 3 to 5 minutes). If you are using butternut squash noodles, add them with the chicken as well, and cook them 3 to 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning.

For those who want pasta noodles, place the cooked noodles in each individual bowl and ladle soup on top. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired. Store leftover soup and cooked noodles separately.
