Ingredients to Make Meatball Soup

For the meatballs:

  • Ground Meat: I like to use a combination of pork and ground beef. Feel free to use ground turkey, ground chicken, or ground lamb.
  • Eggs: Eggs help hold the meatballs together and keep them nice, tender, and juicy.

  • Minced parsley for flavor.
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Salt and Black Pepper

For the soup, You’ll need:

  • Olive oil or oil avocado.

How to Make Soup

Make meatballs. Place all meatball ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well with your hands.

Then, roll the meat into 1-inch balls.

Heat oil over medium heat in a pan. Brown the meatballs for 2-3 minutes. The inside of meatballs will finish cooking in the soup. Remove the meatballs and set them aside.

Cook vegetables. Heat oil over medium heat in a pot, and then add the onions, carrots, and potatoes. Cover and let the veggies sweat, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.

Add the chicken broth and water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes. Then add the meatballs and rice.

Cook until rice is cooked through, refer to package for cooking time. Transfer to serving bowls. Garnish with the fresh parsley.
