Meatball and Escarole Soup

Meatball and Escarole Soup created by breezermom

We like to change the taste of this by using different types greens (we have supped spinach and mustard greens both in the past). The taste also changes with the type of meatballs you use. My family’s favorite is Italian flavored meatballs. We serve with French bread and fresh fruit for dessert.

    I really liked this! I did have to add more chicken broth than was initially called for in the recipe, otherwise I'd have a really thick stew instead of a soup! I sauteed the onions and carrots in a little bit of olive oil, then after a minute or two, threw in my minced garlic. Then I added the chicken broth and my greens (had to substitute kale because I couldn't find escarole). I think the escarole would have cooked down more and put out more liquid, so I had to add more chicken broth....I actually added turkey stock that I made from my Thanksgiving turkey. This was a deliciously warming soup on an unusually cold day here in NW Florida! Thanks so much for sharing your yummy recipe!
