Turkey Albondiga Soup


You guys it's a little chilly outside and I really like it!  I made a quick trip to Trader Joes last night after work and the only thing my taste buds were craving was some sort of soup.  The real me wanted to grab a Top Ramen packet but the health freak in me opted for Turkey Albondiga.  I'm so happy I made this choice because this might be one of my favorite soups ever, not to mention it's really easy to make and basically just requires a little bit of prep and patience.  Let's go over all ingredients (purchased from Trader Joes) and steps!

You'll Need

1 Pack of Lean Ground Turkey
1 Quartz Organic Beef Broth
Small Bunch of Cilantro
4 Organic Red Potatoes
1 Organic Zucchini
1 Onion
2 Teaspoons of Olive Oil
Salt to Taste - I use Himalayan Pink Salt


Steps

1. Begin by mixing just a little bit of pink salt over your ground turkey and then start creating small to medium sized meatballs.
2.  Turn your heat up to medium high and pour in two teaspoons of olive oil. 
3. Once your oil heats up, drop your meatballs into the pot to start cooking.  Cook the meatballs until all sides are golden brown.
4. Meanwhile, start chopping up your vegetables however you'd like.  I chopped my onion and cilantro together and diced my potatoes and zucchini.
5. Drop the cilantro and onions directly over the meatballs followed by the potatoes and zucchini.  Let that simmer for about 30 seconds.


6. Finally, pour 3/4 of the beef broth carton into the pot and add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of water to dilute the broth a bit.  If it tastes too watered down, you can definitely add salt to taste or more beef broth.  Totally up to your taste buds!  Lower the heat to medium and let it simmer for about 10 minutes making sure to check in every so often. 

That's all it takes!  I would say the whole prep and cook time takes about a half an hour, but the best part of making soup is you literally just have to toss all ingredients in and it basically cooks itself.  I like my Turkey Albondiga spicy, so I always add hot sauce into my bowl along with diced avocado.  Aside from these additions, you can also add white or brown rice for an extra filling taste.  Hope you guys like this soup, talk to you all later!
