This was a wonderful light soup for our March snowfall today! I used ground bison, 10oz bag of frozen spinach and just the whites of the eggs. I didn't include the extra bouillon. I was worried the meatballs wouldn't stay together but they held together great. I seasoned the meat with freshly ground pepper... if I hadn't it may have been too bland, but its Swedish, so that can be expected I guess. Because of its huge serving size and large protein amount while still being low calorie, I plan to keep this one around! Made for Stone Soup Game.
