Weeknight Coconut Curry Noodle Soup with Turmeric Turkey Meatballs

Whoa. That title is a mouthful, huh? Well, so is this super easy, super delicious soup that is sure to become a mainstay on your weekly menu lineup. It's one of those amazing dishes that is both rich and healthy, filling but not heavy, comforting but not boring. In other words, it's kind of perfect. If you're not a fan of turkey or meatballs (or turkey meatballs), you can easily substitute chicken or shrimp or even make it vegetarian by using mushrooms or tofu (don't forget to sub veggie broth for the chicken broth if you're really trying to ditch the animal products). If you make one of these substitutions, I still highly recommend incorporating the recipe's meatball seasonings, as they really do add flavor and depth to the overall dish.

Now get those chopsticks ready, and let's get cooking!
