It does not get more satisfying and yummy than this soup! The flavors are simple yet delicious and there’s no need for pasta or rice because the whole and fresh ingredients will fill you up.
The mushrooms are a must for extra veggies and the ground meat is substitutable with whatever you have on hand. I love to make this with lamb or pork, but turkey or chicken are also amazing here.
For the meatballs, the ingredient list is short and powerful. You don’t need a lot to make these delectable and poppable. You can fry them in the pot before you make the soup but I prefer baking them. Quick and painless, no need to stand over the pot for double the time.
