  • 1/2 pound ground beef, extra lean
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 5 3/4 cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 1/3 cup carrot, finely chopped


Servings 6


Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, meat, egg, cheese, basil and onion
powder, shape into 3/4 inch balls.

In a large saucepan, heat broth to boiling, stir in kale, orzo, carrot and meatballs. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Cook at a slow boil for 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: I like bread with soup so either bake some in your breadmaker or buy a nice loaf of crusty bread to go with this. Add a salad if you want, but you've got tons of green stuff going on this hearty soup.
