gingered-turkey meatball soup

Gingered-Turkey Meatball Soup is just right for the cold, grey, rainy stuff that’s going on where I live right now. It’s not quite as speedy as some of these “everyday” recipes we’ve been making, but if you have a bit of extra time, or if you can make the meatballs in advance, you’ll wind up with a pot full of super satisfying soup– healthy, filling and warm.

I had read comments that the recipe calls for more broth than is really needed, but I was only cooking up two portions’ worth, so I just eyeballed what I needed to cook and serve everything up for that smaller amount.  I did make the full recipe of the meatballs though, which are cooked right in the broth, and what I didn’t use for soup, I used in a rice and veg bowl with Korean BBQ sauce another night.

I added lots of veggies to my soup…baby bok choy, choy sum, sweet potatoes and shimeji mushrooms, plus green chili and cilantro. Rather than the rice noodles called for in the recipe, I sliced into noodle-ish strips some egg wonton wrappers I’d had in the freezer for longer than I can remember. I liked a big glug of rice vinegar and sesame oil at the end.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan (it’s also here), and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. My husband and son would have loved that addition of the peppers you have in yours! I will have to remember that next time 🙂

  2. SO SMART not to add red cabbage!

  3. I did something similar while using the extra meatballs: I used gochujang and loved it. Green chili sounds wonderful too.

  4. I did a freezer dive and threw some dumplings in mine 🙂

    This is definitely soup weather – between the rain and the snow, all I want to eat are hot foods.

  5. Really intrigued by how innovative you were. This is already a healthy soup but you made it even healthier. Good idea about making all the meatballs for other uses. I think they would freeze well also.

  6. Beautiful bowl of soup! I like your addition of green chillies!
