Zaynab Makes Gingery Chicken Noodle Soup | From The Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

Join Zaynab Issa in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she prepares her Gingery Chicken Noodle Soup recipe. Taking inspiration from Zaynab’s favorite instant noodles, Maggi masala noodles, this chicken noodle soup gets a heavy hand of aromatic curry powder and ginger for depth. The spice blend, along with a few alliums, provide tons of flavor while keeping things speedy, especially if you’re working with a prepared stock.

  1. If youre not buying organic ginger without any treatment you should peel your ginger

  2. No one will every convince that literally 7 “pinches” (aka handfuls) of salt is necessary for a bowl of soup. Having too much sodium is not chill

  3. seeing her not peel the carrots/ginger made me feel very validated – v – thanks zaynab~

  4. I love that I have just been given permission to skip peeling ginger. Best thing that's happened to me in 2023, and possibly also 2022.

  5. I love anything zaynab makes. Her recipes are usually so simple but super flavorful and pleasant.

  6. I would like the video more if she didn’t talk like Kylie Jenner with the up talk.

  7. Easy, relatively inexpensive, and looking incredibly delicious! I’m all in!!
