  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.

I made it at a soup kitchen I volunteer at . Everyone loved it! I will make again!

Loved this soup. I had to add 1tsp more fresh ginger to the soup as it wasn't strong enough. But overall a good result and very easy to make.

Very tasty, comforting soup, perfect on a cold winter day or if you're feeling under the weather. I followed the recipe exactly, except for using more carrots in place of the celery. Next time I...

Delicious! The ginger and white pepper give this a subtle, pleasing bite and the turmeric provides a rich, beautiful color. Perfect soup if you are a little under the weather. I made two small c...

Made it for the first time last week and it came out awesome! I added some more ingredients for more flavor:

I decided to simplify a few steps. Once the veggies were sauted, and before the cover and cook step, I added both the water AND broth, along with uncooked noodles. Then covers and simmered unti...

Very good. I substituted coconut oil for olive oil, fresh turmeric instead of ground, and added parsnips and cashews. I parboiled the carrots, parsnips, and potatoes just because I prefer softer...
