Soup Sunday Curry Bowl

It is off season for me. A chance to rest from racing and intense training. It is a time to give my body a chance to recover and repair from injuries that build up over the season. Part of that recovery is eating really healthy food.

Today's recipe features an Asian inspired soup with turkey bone broth as the base. You can use chicken bone broth or stock.  I made the broth base a month ago and froze it.  The broth is simple to make. I roast turkey parts and then simmer with water and a little apple cider vinegar in a crock pot for about 24 hours.  Bone broth is the latest foodie craze, It has been shown to have many health benefits.

When I want to make soup I take my broth out of the freezer and I have a great start on dinner. This recipe only took about 15 minutes to put together.

Turkey Curry Bowl

4 cups turkey bone broth (can use commercial chicken or turkey broth)
1 1/2 cups shredded turkey
1 bunch green onions
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 carrot cut into matchsticks
2 stalks of celery finely chopped
2 eggs soft boiled, Sliced
1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
4 ounces Chinese egg noodles prepared according to package directions

Put the broth in a stockpot and heat to a simmer. Add the onions and turkey.  Add the curry, five spice powder and fish sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes.  Add the sugar snap peas and cook for another 2 minutes.  Add the egg noodles.  Ladle soup into bowls and top with carrots and egg slices.

Serves 4
