|A clear soup of mini turkey meatballs|
Seasoned with slices of ginger, garlic, a few slices of
red pepper for heat, and scallions. Don't forget to
garnish with basil leaves to add freshness to the soup.
It turned out to be very light, satisfying, and delicious. So I extended this kind of soup for the Saturday and Sunday dinner for myself to indulge in and soothe my sore throat as well. Paired with a toasted buttered baguette is perfection.
4 oz. Jennie-O turkey patty rounded into miniature balls (yields about 8-9 pieces)
1 tbsp. fresh ginger cut thinly (to soothe my scratchy throat)
1 clove garlic cut thinly
1 scallion chopped
1/4 of red chili cut into rounds (add more if you want more heat) or do not add at all.
Basil for garnish
Tamari soy sauce (optional)
In a small pot add 2 cups of water or unsalted chicken stock; add the ginger, garlic, and chili. Let boil and add the turkey meatballs. Scoop out the "scum" on the side; add a pinch of salt and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add the scallions and transfer to a bowl - add a teaspoon of Tamari soy sauce and garnish with basil. ( you may season this according to your taste).
This is a make me feel good soup any time!
