This soup smells heavenly. It is easy and healthy. I am sure it would have been excellent without the changes I made. However, I added about 1/2 c of fresh flat leaf parsley into the meat and did not bake the meat balls. I heated up the broth, then put everything, including the raw meat balls, except the pasta, into a crockpot on high for about 3 hours. I cooked whole wheat pasta and served on the side with slices of fresh lemons as garnish. Just so when we have leftovers the pasta would not bloat up from being in the broth too long. Although I am allergic to coconut, next time I may substitute 1 cup of broth with a cup of coconut milk. Because it smells like Tom Yum soup and it seems like it would enhance the flavor and richness of this soup. But that means I cannot eat it. Oh Well! I will have to rely on other people's feedback. THANK YOU.
I must add my vioce to others who say this soup is great! I really like the dill in the broth. I will keep this soup in my lst of things to make again!
This is great soup. I have a houseful of sickies and this soup was just perfect for them all last night.The dill flavour really makes this so be sure to use it. I also made sure to cut my vegies very small. The soup was ready in no time and very tasty.
Outstanding! The ginger is the secret ingredient and adds so much to this soup. To the meatballs I used Italian bread crumbs for a little more flavor. This recipe is so easy to make and tastes so gourmet. Iâ€™m lovin this dish!
This is an AWESOME soup! I used onions instead of leeks, and ground turkey instead of chicken, but everything turned out great. It is a perfect soup for the fall, and I have lots in the freezer as well. The only issue I ran into is with the gingerroot. I have never used it before, so I wasn't sure how exactly to use it in this soup, but I basically threw it in the pot...
The broth of this soup is outstanding! The flavor the ginger and dill together bring to it is fantastic. In my never ending quest to try and "lighten" things up, I banned the noodles and added more veggies...2 small chopped zucchini, about 1/2 c. chopped mushrooms and 1c. of chopped baby spinach. The spinach I added at the very end. My only disappoinment was the meatballs. I loved the fact that they turned out very moist, but the only flavor they had was of bread crumbs, but that can be easily remedied by adding herbs and seasonings of choice will making them. Just be careful not to over season as you don't want them to voerpower this delightful broth. Thanks for sharing this great little recipe!
You did it again, Dotty2, ANOTHER great recipe that is sure to please everyone. Superb just about sums up this soup. I couldn't find ground chicken so I used ground turkey. The flavor is outstanding with the ginger and dill and it makes a very comforting soup. This will make a "repeat performance" in this household . . . for sure. Thanks again!
Love your recipes Dotty2! I made this excellent soup last week and simmered another pot for lunch today. Perfect lunch for the chilly wet day we are having. Followed the recipe exactly, used leeks and picked up fresh dill which makes for a wonderful touch. This is filed under my favorite soups and will be made again ... and again. Thank you Dotty2!
