Lebanese Lamb Meatball and Rice Soup

Lebanese Lamb Meatball and Rice Soup created by katew

I don't know what the real name for this soup is, it was passed on to me by my mother who learned it from my Lebanese grandfather on my dad's side. It is made with Kafta; we used to purchase it at a Lebanese store, but here is a recipe to make your own: Kafta (Meatball Shish Kabobs) Recipe #238833. For the clarified butter you may use your own, but this how I make it-- Rendered/Clarified Butter (Samneh) Middle East, Palestine Recipe #322377. The soup is rich and fulfilling.

    This was fantastic, tasty and easy to do for our Saturday lunch on a winter's day !! I loved it and could not stop at one bowl. I reduced the amount of water and used a cup of tomato pasta sauce as I had no puree. I also added a sprinkle of Moroccan spice blend to the soup as it cooked. When I serve it I gave it a little drizzle of chilli sauce. Made for ZWT6.
