Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup cooked white rice

  • 2

    large eggs, beaten

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 3

    scallions, finely chopped

  • 3

    cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons

  • ground cumin

  • kosher salt

  • black pepper

  • 1

    pound ground pork

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1

    14.5ounce can diced tomatoes, drained

  • 6

    cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 1

    bunch spinach (about 4 cups)

  • fresh cilantro, for serving

  • grated Cheddar, for serving

  • sour cream, for serving

Directions

Combine the rice, eggs, oregano, a third each of the scallions and garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of the cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the pork and gently mix with your hands until just combined. Form the mixture into 16 meatballs (about 11/2 tablespoons each). Broil, on the prepared baking sheet, until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Heat broiler, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the remaining scallions, garlic, and cumin and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the scallions are tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to thicken, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Stir in the spinach and meatballs. Serve topped with the cilantro, Cheddar, and a dollop of sour cream.
