Texas weather is wacky. It can be a real treat . . . or a total trick with hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, thunderstorms and flooding. But, today we got a real treat as the highs dropped down from nearly 90 degrees yesterday to a predicted 65 today.

Finally, it feels like fall and I’m suddenly in the mood for soup. However, less in the mood for heading to the grocery store on a Friday afternoon before Halloween. No need to fight the monster shopping crowd, my Turmeric Egg Drop Soup with Noodles comes together in mere minutes with simple items from my pantry and produce bin scraps. Read on to get the recipe.

Turmeric Egg Drop Soup with Noodles might sound like a bit of everything . . . and it is! The beauty of a soup is that you can dump a bunch of stuff in a pot, and 95% of the time it turns out fabulous! It’s a smart way to use up all those little bits and pieces of veggies leftover from the week’s meals, I had a handful of spinach, onions and carrots on hand. From the pantry I grabbed a true melting pot of spices including turmeric, ginger, garlic and Tajin – a Mexican chile-lime seasoning. Also, a carton of broth, soy sauce and pasta – use any shape ‘ya got! Turmeric & Noodle Egg Drop Soup is a quick and easy meal for busy nights!

And, don’t forget the eggs, they add texture and a boost in protein! I always have a stash of eggs in my fridge to add those signature threads to “egg drop.” The trick to getting your egg drop smooth and silky is to not skip the cornstarch step and to also stream and stir the whisked eggs into the broth very slowing.

The ground turmeric in the recipe gives this simple soup a vibrant color and welcomed rich, lightly earthy flavor. This spice is a favorite and I’ve shared lots of turmeric recipes in the past, not just for the taste but the wellness reasons – like the powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Another righteous riff on egg drop soup is my Tex-Mex Egg Drop Soup. Try it today, ole!
