1 each  whole roasting chicken, without skin
1 each  medium onions
2 each  medium carrots
1 each  medium russet potato
2 cup  kohlrabi
4 each  medium zucchini
4 each  medium celery stalks
1 1/2 cup  fresh cubed pumpkin
2 each  bay leaves
0 1/2 cup  fresh cilantro
0 1/2 cup  unsalted tomato juice
1 tsp  Hawaij spice
1 pinch  salt
  1. Boil chicken in a 6-quart soup pot. Clean the fat from the soup. If you have poured off the water, refill pot halfway and bring poultry to a boil again.
  2. Add vegetables, cut into very large chunks, bay leaves, cilantro and the tomato juice (this will make soup darker than the original).
  3. Season with salt and Hawaij (blend of turmeric, cumin, black pepper, and cardamom). (The correct amount of hawaij will make soup golden, but not too dark.)
  4. Simmer for about an hour, or until chicken is soft. Add salt to taste.
  5. Remove cilantro and bay leaves before serving.
