  • 6 ounces egg noodles

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 (2 inch) piece ginger root, minced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 leek, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 2 carrots, cut into cubes

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups water

  • 2 cups vegetable broth


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add egg noodles; cook, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 3 minutes. Drain. Rinse with cool tap water until cooled, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in leeks and cook until slightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add carrots and celery; cook and stir, about 2 minutes. Add potatoes; cook and stir, about 2 minutes.

  3. Cover skillet and cook until vegetables release some moisture, about 5 minutes. Stir in turmeric, white pepper, and salt. Pour in water and bring soup to a boil.

  4. Bring vegetable broth to a boil in a separate pot. Remove from heat and pour in soup. Stir in egg noodles. Return to heat and simmer until flavors combine, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth if desired.
