Here’s another recipe from Real Simple. Betcha never knew there were so many things you could do with meatballs, right? 😉 This soup was so easy to make, and it was really good! The kids didn’t like the escarole, but they liked everything else.
Lemony “Meatball” and Escarole Soup
(Real Simple, Sept. 2012)
time needed: 30 min.
20 meatballs (I used 1 box of Morningstar Farms veggie meatballs)
6 cups chicken broth (I used vegetarian “chicken” broth)
1 14.5 ounce can cannellini beans
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 small head escarole, torn
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the meatballs. Combine the broth, beans, garlic, and meatballs in a large pot and bring to a boil. Stir in escarole, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 8-10 min. Add lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
