Tonight I wanted soup and I wanted it easy, with stuff I had on hand. So I sautéed some onions, swiss chard, and added the other easy ingredients. If you don’t have chard you could easily add spinach or kale. I bet you could even just add a package of frozen spinach! Here are the ingredients:
One onion diced
About a pound of swiss Chard, coarsely chopped
Two thinly sliced carrots
One pound bag of pre cooked meatballs, whatever kind you like
A squeeze of garlic from one of those pre done garlic tube things
I pulled a few leaves off my basil, rosemary and marjoram plants… chopped em up..
six cups of water
two tablespoons of caldo de pollo… chicken boullion granules
one 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Instructions: sauté onions and Chard in some butter or olive oil…. then add all the other ingredients, and allow to simmer for about an hour on low heat. No need to defrost the meatballs first if they are frozen…Adjust seasonings to taste. Would be great with a grilled cheese sammich!
