If you’re a meat eater, chances are high that you love meatballs. After all, what’s there not to love? Meat and spices are rolled into balls of deliciousness and usually added to yet another tasty dish, like a pasta or a sub sandwich.
And now there’s another tasty meatball dish to try: my Meatball Soup, powered by Bone Broth Protein.
This isn’t just any kind of soup. It’s made with protein powder from bone broth so that just sipping on the benefit-rich bone broth will provide support for your gut, joints and more. It’s also really easy to make. Seriously! So let’s get cooking.
This is one the most protein-rich soups you can consume, as it's got 45 grams protein per serving, along with 16 grams of carbs and 19 grams of fat. It will keep you going the rest of the day.
It also includes some outstanding nutrients:
- Vitamin A: 13521 IU (580% DV*)
- Vitamin C: 15.8 mg (21% DV*)
- Iron: 4.7mg (26% DV*)
- Potassium: 985mg (28.1% DV*)
*Percentages are based on a diet of 2000 calories a day.
How to Make Meatball Soup
Start by mixing together the ground beef, eggs, sea salt and paprika or cayenne together. Roll the mixture into small meatballs. Then, in a large pot, heat the coconut oil and add the meatballs. Let them cook until they’re just browned, turning them so they color evenly.
Then, in the same pot, add the water, Bone Broth Protein, water, bay leaves, carrots and sweet potatoes. Bring everything to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Finally, add in the remaining ingredients and let the whole pot of meatball soup simmer for the next 20 minutes or so, or until the meatballs are cooked through. That’s all there is to this simple soup. I love serving it with a side of gluten-free crackers. It works equally well as a lunch or dinner and makes a great take-to-work lunch.
