Made with turkey meatballs and Swiss chard, my rendition of this classic soup is both light and comforting.
For the meatballs:
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Use a fork to mix so that the meat doesn’t get too mashed up. Scoop teaspoon-sized amounts of the meat mixture and use your hands to roll them into balls. Lay on a sheet pan that has been lined with oil and sprayed with nonstick spray.
Place the tray of meatballs into the preheated oven and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
For the soup:
Heat your pot over medium heat. Add the oil and let that get hot. Add the onions, celery, carrots and parsley and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the Swiss chard and cook another 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the chicken stock and then add the meatballs to the pot. Stir the pot and then turn heat to medium-low. Let slowly cook for 1 1/2 hours.
After the soup has cooked for 1 1/2 hours, turn the heat back to medium and add your pasta. Since this is a small pasta shape, it will cook quickly and not need to boil. Plus, I like to let it cook a little slower so it will absorb more flavor. Once the pasta is cooked, you can serve your soup and enjoy!
Perfect rainy day soup and quick enough for mid-week supper! Great as a first course or as an entree with a nice spring mix salad and some wonderful crusty bread. And don’t forget about the rest of the bottle of white wine.
Collards, black-eyed peas and smoky bacon make this delicious take on Hopping John soup.
Loaded with light and fresh flavors, Chicken Pho is a fun twist on the same-old-same-old bowl of chicken noodle soup. The broth is best made ahead of time, in either a slow cooker, or on the stove top. Then allow it to cool completely and skim off any congealed fat. The poached chicken and rice noodles can also be made ahead for time saving purposes.
