Try our version of a great Italian Wedding Soup using Topline Foods’ organic grass fed beef mini-meatballs and kale!

Ingredients:

1 lb Topline Foods organic grass fed ground beef

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1 egg

1 tsp Topline Foods Italian Sausage Signature Seasoning

————————-

4-6 cups beef stock

4 celery stalks, chopped

3 portobello mushroom caps, chopped

1 red or yellow onion, chopped

8 small sweet peppers (or, use a couple jalapenos for heat!)

4 carrots, chopped

1 bunch kale, chopped (or 2 if you prefer lots of kale)

1/2 tsp Topline Foods Signature Seasoning Salt, or to taste

1/2 tsp black pepper, ground, or to taste

1 bay leaf

1/2 tsp hot chili flakes

1 tsp Topline Foods Italian Style Signature Seasoning

Directions:

To make the meatballs, first preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper. In a bowl, gently combine the organic grass fed ground beef with the next 3 ingredients. You don’t want to over mix or the meatballs will be tough instead of light and savory! Make tiny, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch meatballs and arrange on the sheet pan. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until browned on top. (If they aren’t cooked all the way through, that is ok because they will get to cook more in the broth.)

While the meatballs are cooking, add everything but the kale and stock to a soup pot and saute until softened.

Once the kale has wilted down, add the browned meatballs and stock to the pot. Stir gently so the tender little meatballs don’t break apart.
