PREP: 15 min. ACTIVE: 15 min. PASSIVE: 5 min. DIFFICULTY Easy

Ingredients:

Meatballs:
  • 1 lb. of Pre 80% Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 2 tsp red chili flake
  • 2 tsp salt
Soup:
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2-3 ribs of celery, diced
  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • 1 large zucchini, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, red, yellow or orange, diced
  • 5 oz baby spinach
  • 2 cups frozen cauliflower rice or your favorite cooked grain (rice or farro would also work!)
  • 4 cups of vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh lemon juice, to taste
  1. Favoring the tips of your finger, gently mix together all the meatball ingredients until evenly distributed. Form meatballs into small 1 inch balls.
  2. Preheat about 2 tsp of olive oil in a large soup pot. Brown meatballs in batches, but don’t worry about cooking all the way through. Reserve partly-cooked meatballs on the lid of your pan.
  3. In the same pan, sweat the carrots, onions, and celery until soft and translucent, about 5-10 minutes. Add in zucchini and bell pepper and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in broth, add the meatballs back in and bring to a gentle simmer. After about 5 minutes simmering, the meatballs will have cooked through, add in cauliflower rice (or grain of your choice) and spinach. Stir until the spinach has wilted.
  5. Season with cracked black pepper, salt, and lemon juice. Enjoy!
