Albondigas Meatball Soup

Albondigas Meatball Soup

This one is a keeper. I used the recipe from Simply Recipes and altered it to fit into our cleanse and with the ingredients I had on hand. Here is my version (we used all organic ingredients):



  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 3 quarts water
  • ½ cup tomato sauce (I make my own tomato sauce using fresh tomatoes and an immersion blender)
  • 3 large carrots
  • 4 bok choy leaves
  • 1 tsp dried oregano


  • 1/3 cup cooked rice
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • dash of black pepper
  1. Heat oil in large soup pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender. Add the garlic and cook for about a minute more. Add water and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Add carrots and bok choy.
  2. Prepare the meatballs. Mix rice into meat, adding parsley, salt and pepper. Form mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
  3. Add the meatballs to the simmering soup, one at a time. Cover and let simmer for ½ hour. Add the oregano.

Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro and joila! Albondigas Meatball Soup!

Bon Appetit!
