Bit of Flavor Curry Noodle Soup

Bit of Flavor Curry Noodle Soup
Ingedient List is at the end

Doesn't this look delicious??  It was, and it was very easy to make!

Start out with a few fresh veggies. 
I used one white onion, one zucchini, one yellow squash, and
a bit of a butternut squash I had left from an earlier recipe.
You could also use a sweet potato, or whatever you enjoy and have on hand.

Chop your onion well.
Dice or chop your other veggies to your preferred size.

Heat some Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large heavy pot over medium high heat.

As the onion begins to cook, add your other veggies.
I chopped up my zucchini first, so it went in first.
Continue adding your veggies.

Heat all until somewhat softened.

Reduce heat to medium. 
Add your broth.
I used some of my homemade turkey broth, which is my Day-after Thanksgiving tradition.
I also did not get my frozen turkey broth out a day early, so it was still slightly frozen. 
No worries, though - I just plopped it into the pot and let it thaw over the heat.

Next, add your curry powder and other favorite seasonings.
I added my usual - Sea salt, black pepper, garlic, and Butt Rub -
along with two types of curry powder.

Add one can of Coconut Milk and one can of Diced Tomotoes.
Stir well, and continue heating over medium.

Optional: Add some chopped pre-cooked chicken.

While the soup is heating and blending, cook some noodles.
A nice choice is to use rice noodles. 
I was out of these, so I used spaghetti noodles,
which I broke in half before adding to the pot of boiling water.

I'd also recommend prepping some toppings.
I offered green onion, cilantro, and sour cream.

When everything is ready, offer bowls and let everyone fix their own!
Scoop some noodles into the bowl, and spoon the soup over top.
Add toppings as desired, and enjoy!!

Feel free to slurp if you want to!
