Italian Wedding Soup, (Low Sodium)
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
After making this a time or three, I reworked the ingredients to make it suit my family's taste buds. To make is more sodium friendly: Reduce the amount of grated cheese, use unseasoned bread crumbs and a low sodium broth. To make it more calorie friendly use: low fat broth, ground chicken or turkey. I would advise against precooking or browning the meat as that will change the flavor. Just make your tiny meatballs and gently place them in simmering broth. Many recipes call for spinach, but I find the escarole looks, tastes, and holds up better. IMO this is fairly bland because of the low sodium option. Please feel free to jazz it up with salt or use a chicken stock with sodium but compare labels, some can be higher than others. as you see fit.
