This does make a great main meal when you are under the weather! It`ll clear out those sinuses and chest congestion.

A very good clear soup, the tumeric not only lends flavor but also gives the broth a golden color for a very attractive presentation. While the seasonings probably make this a bit strong for large servings as a family meal main course, I would definitely use it as an appetizer soup for a multi-course meal.

The seasonings definitley give this soup a unique flavor, but I felt it was missing something. I think maybe using broth instead of water? The color was beautiful from the tumeric, but I had to add lots of tamari to get the soup not to taste like it was just well-seasoned water. Thanks for the tip to use the food processor for the onions... it made this soup come together much more easily.
