READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ceezie

Another great and easy recipe to use up the frozen meatballs - I buy them for DH to eat when I am not home but sometimes they sound good to me too and this is a great way to use them

This is a really great idea and allows for a lot of diversity! I had some fancy cranberry-jalapeno meatballs left over from Christmas brunch, and used them...and added frozen okra. It made the soup kind of like a meatball gumbo! But without my amendments, the meatballs and brown rice make a satisfying soup that comes together in a jiffy. Thank You, Ceezie!
