Turkey Noodle Soup fresh Ingredients in a bowl

Sweating the Veggies

In a large soup pot over medium heat add the butter. Once it melts, add the onion, celery, and carrot and let these vegetables sweat in the pot, stirring frequently so they don’t burn.

Cook and Simmer

After around ten minutes or so, add the garlic, herbs and azafran. Cook for another few minutes. Add the turkey meat and broth. Turn up the heat and bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.

Adding the Noodles

After around 20 minutes, the vegetables should be just about tender. Add the dried noodles and cook for 20 more minutes. Add salt and pepper as needed. Garnish with sliced spring onions if you want to add a bit of bright green vegetable crunch.
