Spring Minestrone with Chicken Meatballs
Anyone that reads this blog regularly knows that I love soup. It is probably one of my favorite foods and I could literally eat it twice a day. My two sons are the same way. At dinner tonight they informed me that they weren't hungry and therefore not eating. After they had the soup in front of them they happily ate their whole bowls. In the last couple of months my husband has decided that he wants to lose weight and I have been making a conscious effort to make more low-fat meals. Soup is a great way to incorporate lower calorie foods and I have been experimenting with a number of recipes. When I was looking through the April issue of Bon Appetit magazine the recipe for Spring Minestrone with Chicken Meatballs caught my eye and it looked low in calories and delicious.
The flavor of this soup is absolutely delicious. The broth tastes almost similar to the broth in wonton soup, it really has a lot of taste. My husband and two boys were huge fans of this soup and ate multiple servings. I found that this recipe made more than the four servings suggested. It made enough for dinner for my family of four plus leftovers for lunch the next day. This is a soup that I will definitely make again!
