Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Cold, snowy winter days are a nice time for a hot bowl of soup.  A hearty homemade chicken noodle soup is wonderful in wintertime.   In order to be able to whip this together, I always try to have cooked chicken available. When I roast chicken (or turkey), I freeze leftovers so I have chicken available in order to whip together this tasty soup.  My kids all love it, veggies included!   We eat it on it's own, or with fresh bread, toasted.  Enjoy!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Serves ~6

Saute about 7 minutes over medium-high heat, until carrots are softening (you want to make sure your carrots are diced very finely because they will be the last vegetable to soften, if they're nice and small they'll be mostly cooked during the saute and then finish up during the boiling):
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
2-3 carrots, diced very small
1/2 - 1 onion, diced very small
2-3 gloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup small turnips, diced very small (I had mini ones that I finely diced - leave them out if you don't have any on hand)
~2-3 stalks celery, diced (I used a handful of very thin purple celery stalks)

Add and bring to a boil:
~7 cups homemade chicken broth/stock (or GF chicken bouillon)
1-2 Tbsp fresh parsley, diced
1-2 Tbsp fresh dill, diced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
dash turmeric

Add and boil soup 13-15 minutes, until pasta is cooked:
1 1/2 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken
1/2 package GoGo Quinoa vegetable noodles (they're tiny and circular, perfect for this soup, or you can use small GF noodles of your choice)

Adjust salt & pepper, as desired.  Serve and enjoy!
