Zucchini Soup with Meatballs

The recipe is another improvisation of how you can use healthy, dietary products to make a delicious and complete meal. It is one of our favorite soups, I recommend it for lunch but especially for dinner.

Zucchini is one of my mother's favorite vegetables, she grinds it small and puts it in any soup, like a kind of vegetable - it adds a very good taste, something I didn't know until I tried it. Besides the fact that it is very good, it is also healthy, you must try.

You can also improvise a chicken soup in which to put only zucchini, without meatballs - with them I found it more interesting.


Chicken meat
1 piece
I put a few pieces of chicken that I had in the fridge to make the soup tastier - you can without them
White onion
2 pieces
1 piece
you can put here 1 pepper, 1 parsley root, carrot, celery - if you have
1 piece
1 larger or 2 smaller
Chicken meat
300 g
for meatballs - here I put turkey
Sunflower oil
2 tbsp
Laurel leaves
2 pieces
Borsch/Lemon juice
300 ml
put to taste, as sour as you like
1 tbsp
adjust according to taste
1 piece
Fresh parsley
2 tbsp
+ ground pepper for meatballs

Step by step

Step 1

The first thing I recommend is to make the soup base - the soup comes out much tastier and more complete.

So in a saucepan put the chicken cutlery (a little more bone - paws, wings, back - mine were from the country) - add about 2-3 liters of water to cover them well. Put on the fire, when it boils, take the foam and add the vegetables - here I put 1 whole onion and a finely chopped tomato (if you have you can also put 1 pepper, carrot, parsley root - all whole).

Add the bay leaf, oil and simmer, simmer for about 1 hour.

Step 6

Pour the borscht, add salt to taste - simmer for 2 minutes.

If you don't put borscht, it will be a soup, just as delicious.
