An amazing New Year Noodle Soup from Greg & Lucy Malouf’s beautiful book, Saraban. It’s a bean and noodle soup at its core featuring thin egg noodles swimming in a fragrant broth spiced with turmeric, cumin, chiles, and black pepper. You use a medley of lentils, chickpeas, and borlotti beans which makes the soup heart and filling without being heavy. You add spinach, dill, and cilantro. You add lime juice for a bit of sour at the end. And then you’ve got a number of toppings to add when you serve the soup – chopped walnuts, caramelized onions, and sour cream. Amazing.
