This is a hearty and filling winter soup that is tasty and healthy. This is low carb and easy to make.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 5

Ingredients
Soup:
2 onions
2 carrots
4 medium mushrooms
2 tbs crushed garlic
2 tsp dried chilli flakes
2 tbs mixed herbs
3 bay leaves
1 cup of red wine
1 cups of water
1 cup of beef stock
800 g of diced tomatoes
2 tbs olive oil
pepper and salt

Meatballs:
500 g beef mince
1 egg
1 tbs mixed herbs
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
30 very small cheese cubes

Method
  • Dice 2 onions and sauté them in a pot. Adding salt will encourage them to caramelise rather than burn straight away.
  • Add the garlic, herbs, bay leaves & chilli.
  • While the onions are softening, grate the carrots and slice the mushrooms.
  • Add the carrots and mushrooms to the pot and cook until soft.
  • Add the wine, stock, water and tomatoes and simmer 30 minutes.

  • When the soup is done simmering, turn the heat off, remove the bay leaves and blend in a food processor.

  • While the soup is simmering, prepare the meatballs. In a mixing bowl combine the mince, egg, herbs and pepper and salt.
  • Roll small amounts in your hand enclosing a cube of cheese to create the meatballs.

  • Your mixture should create 30 small meatballs.

  • In a frypan, cook the meatballs for 10 minutes, turning every few minutes. Limit the handling of the meatballs as they may fall apart and you will lose the cheesy middle.

  • Ladle the soup into a bowl and pile 6 meatballs on top.
  • Garnish with cheese.
