Turmeric and Coconut Chicken Soup

Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 30 minutes   Rated:

This brilliantly coloured vibrant soup is so delicious you will seriously feel as though you have swallowed sunshine! I LOVE the Vietnamese mint, you should try and get some if you can. I grow it, so it is showing up in lots of my recipes as a result. I love it that much.

When you are looking to combat the winter blues, flus and head colds, turmeric curcumin should be on your shopping list regularly. Eat this and be comforted (and start feeling better immediately)!
