Escarole (or Spinach) Soup

One of my best friends moms passed along this recipe (<3 Mrs. C) and I make it all the time! It's easy, healthy and so delicious!

You’ll Need –

6 Cups Chicken Stock
1 Medium Onion (chopped)
3 Celery Stocks (chopped)
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
1 Head Raw Escarole (or 1 bag of raw spinach, chopped)
1 Lb Lean Ground Sirloin
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbsp Dried Onion
Salt & Pepper
Crushed Red Pepper

Combine ground beef, egg, parmesan cheese and dried onion. Mix well and form the mixture into tiny bite-sized meatballs. Sauté them in a saucepan with few tablespoons of chicken broth and set aside.

Next sauté the onion and celery in a few tablespoons of chicken broth. Cook until translucent and add in the garlic. Cook for a few more minutes and add in the remaining chicken broth and the meatballs. Heat until simmering and top with chopped escarole (add in batches if you need to)

As the escarole heats up it will wilt and you'll be able add more into the pot.  Simmer for about 5 minutes or until the escarole is tender. Season with salt & pepper and crushed red pepper!
