Meatball and Winter Root Vegetable Soup with Kale

Curious about cooking with kale? Start here.

Prep: 20 min Total: 50 min

Ingredients

1 lb ground beef

2 tblsp each of pepper, salt, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, garlic powder, nutmeg and fennel seeds

2 long carrots, peeled and cut in rounds

1 onion, diced

2 stalks of celery, sliced

4 garlic cloves, chopped

2 rutabagas, peeled and diced

4 cups chicken stock

2 cups kale, removed from stems and shredded

Start by mixing all the spices with the ground beef and forming into mini meatballs. Heat your rice cooker on Sauté-Then-Simmer™ and brown the meatballs in 2 or 3 batches. Set aside.

Cook onion, celery, carrot and garlic until browned a bit. Add the broth, meatballs and rutabagas and let cook for 30 minutes or until rutabaga is soft enough to pierce with a fork.

Just before serving add kale and let cook for a few minutes until just wilted.

Delicious, BUT! 2TBS of nutmeg?! This cannot be right. I cut the spices to 1/2TBS and it was still a little too spicy and I'm no spice wimp! Okay, so once I dramatically reduced the spices, this meal was very delicious! I would even go down to 1tsp of nutmeg. Maybe they meant tsp. instead of tablespoon? I don't know, but this is otherwise a fantastic tasting and healthy recipe. I also added an egg to help the meatballs hold together. You could use lean beef, or ground turkey or chicken for the meatballs if you wanted to go even lower in fat and more environmentally friendly. Enjoy!
