Turmeric Detox  Broth



For 4 servings

Turmeric Broth:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 white onions – diced

  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely grated

  • 5 garlic cloves, finely grated

  • 1 tbsp fresh turmeric, finely grated (or 2 teaspoons turmeric powder – or a little bit of both)

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp coriander

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups water

  • 4 cups veggie stock

  • Juice from 1 lime


Additional ingredients (Optional – or can be changed):

  • 1 large sweet potato

  • 80g rice noodles (can add more)

  • 2 handfuls spinach

  • 250g tofu

  • Toppings: coriander, chilli flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (C) fan-force and roast the tofu with some olive oil for 20 minutes.

  2. In a large heavy bottom pot, sauté the onions in 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes until fragrant and golden. Add ginger, garlic, and fresh turmeric and sauté 2-3 minutes until the garlic is fragrant and golden.  Add the cumin, coriander, and optional turmeric power and sauté 1-2 more minutes.

  3. Add water, stock and salt. Bring to a simmer. Add lime juice. Taste and adjust salt, lime and spice level to your liking. At this point you will have a flavourful base to add what you like. 

  4. At this point I added the sweet potato and let it cook at a medium heat for 10 minutes until it softened.  Once the sweet potato was nearly cooked I added the rice noodles and let them cook (NOTE: if you’re going to add more than 80g rice noodles cook them in a separate pot and then add them as they will soak up all of the liquid and turn the broth into a stew).

  5. Once the rice noodles are cooked add the baked tofu and spinach. Once the spinach has wilted it is ready for serving! Top with preferred toppings and enjoy!
