Italian Wedding Soup 🍜

Who doesn’t love a hearty soup ? Whether we are sick, detoxing, or are just simply craving a nourishing dish, this low carb fat fueled take on the Italian Wedding Soup has you covered πŸ’ͺ🏻

Not only do the garlic and onion provide ample flavor, but they also provide the body with a chock full of nutrients that help the body detox, including sulphuric compounds and glutathione (the master antioxidant) precursors! Very important πŸ§…

The bone broth and meat provide important amino acids and collagen which our bodies need to rebuild themselves and function optimally! Plus it’s a great way to eat nose to tail!

Our meatballs are chicken meatballs with ground chicken from Force of Nature, one of my favorite meat companies (they practice holistic management which helps regenerate our topsoil)!

My entire guide to poultry can be found here!

As our fat source, we chose duck fat, which is a great ancestral fat. It’s important that we eat ample healthy and unoxidized fats since all the fat we eat gets incorporated into our cell membranes, and we want those to be intact and healthy!

To make this yummy meal you need:

For the soup:

6 cups Chicken bone broth, we like Bonafide Provisions or Kettle and Fire! With both broth you want to make sure it’s sourced from healthy animals since the bones are a place animals store toxins. You can tell it a bone broth is full of collagen if it becomes jello like in the fridge 🦴

These are the brands we love

2 cups of fresh spinach

12 ounces of frozen riced cauliflower

3 garlic segments πŸ§„

3 stalks of green onion πŸ§…

Salt, oregano and pepper πŸ§‚

Umami Magic Seasoning (Farmhouse Kitchen)

2 tablespoons duck fat for frying 🧈

For the meatballs:

1 pound of ground chicken πŸ”

1/4 cup almond meal 🌰

1/4 cup coconut flour πŸ₯₯

1 egg and one extra yolk πŸ₯š

Salt, pepper, nutmeg πŸ§‚

Fresh basil 🌿

To make:

Begin by heating up duck fat in a large pot and chop the onions and mince the garlic. SautΓ© the onions with salt and pepper until translucent! Then add the garlic and sautΓ© for another minute.

Stir in the chicken broth and oregano , bring to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.

While that’s simmering, prepare the meatballs. Mix the ground meat, eggs, flours and spices and herbs in a bowl and knead with your hands! Form little balls with your hands.

After the 10 minutes are up, add the riced cauliflower and meatballs into the broth and cook until the meatballs float: about 5 minutes.

Lastly, add in the spinach and cook until wilted. Season to taste!

This can be enjoyed on its own or with a bread swap and your favorite grass fed butter (or garlic butter) 🀩🧈
