imageSoups are a hearty and healthy meal. It’s always great when you find a soup that includes protein, vegetables and carbs all in one. My children’s  nana introduced them to this soup a long time ago and they begged me to make it for them. My version is a little different but just as good.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound of minced chicken
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp fresh parmesan
  • 2 tsp fresh basil
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion sautéed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 cups organic chicken broth
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup small pasta
  • 1/2 cup carrots chopped

DIRECTIONS

In a bowl combine minced chicken, eggs, bread crumbs, parmesan, basil, parsley, onion, salt and pepper. Form tiny chicken balls 3/4″ in size. Place chicken broth in a pot. Bring the broth to a boil and place the chicken balls in the pot gently. Add pasta, spinach and carrots into the pot. Lower the temperature to a simmer and cook for approximately 1/2 hour. Serve and enjoy!
