Turmeric Vermicelli Soup – Vegan & Gluten free

In India, Turmeric / Haldi has been used as the most powerful spice and a wonder ingredient since ages. It is a staple in most of all Indian cooking which gives a lovely yellow tinge to any delectable dishes. The incredible list of healing properties of this root include antioxidant, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-carcinogenic, anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory and many more as well. I particularly like to include the fresh turmeric in the diet chart for my family.

Fresh turmeric is less bitter than its dried form. Just wash and scrub the turmeric root for any dirt and then grate to use. It’s that simple 😊 Here I have come up with a soup again using fresh turmeric although I have shared previously one soup as Carrot and Turmeric Soup, but this time its a kind of clear soup using some rice vermicelli which is named as Turmeric Vermicelli Soup.

Rice vermicelli is a type of rice noodle used in many Asian cuisines like Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and other Southeast Asian dishes. Nutritionally, the rice vermicelli is calorie-dense and high in carbohydrates, but fat-free and low in sodium particularly. These are prepared from ground rice. Rice vermicelli cooks really fast in about 2 minutes and are totally gluten-free and lactose free. They only need to be soaked in hot water to be used in any dish.

In this soup, but I have added the rice vermicelli directly to the boiled stock and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes or till they become al dente. The whole method of preparation is simple and easy. Although here i have not added any other vegetables (only Celery Stalk is used as I have that in my pantry) still one can surely add any other quickly cooked vegetables like spinach, kale or any other greens or even frozen veggies. The soup is completely vegan and gluten free as well. Also the addition of onion garlic can be skipped 😊
