Curried Lentil Chicken Noodle Soup

Serves 5-6

Total cook time…50 minutes

Ingredients:

 

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 1” piece ginger root (peeled and halved)
  • 1 ½ cups dried green lentils
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery stalks
  • 2 teaspoons good quality garam masala (I know it’s not Canadian, but I love Trader Joe’s spice blend)
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 cups cooked fusilli pasta
  • 1 ½ cups cooked chicken meat (roughly chopped)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Directions:

 

  1. Place the first two ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce to medium heat and let simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes.
  2. Next, remove aromatics (cloves and ginger), add lentils, celery, spices, maple syrup and vinegar and cook until lentils are al dente, approximately 12-14 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir until spinach has wilted completely. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
