This is the perfect mix of traditional wedding soup and vegetable soup. Hearty and loaded with arugula, spinach and broccoli. The base of the soup is chicken stock and a hint of lemon juice. Crushed red pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese are added to each steaming bowl.
I was recently getting over a cold and made chicken soup to sooth my sore throat. My boyfriend made wilted spinach, arugula and roasted broccoli to accompany his meal of chicken and vegetables. I decided to spruce up my soup and add some of his roasted vegetables. I ended up with a hearty flavorful soup with lots of texture thanks to the vegetables. Not to mention the added immune boost. I decided to recreate the soup and add turkey meatballs instead of chicken and no pasta or rice. Trust me you will not miss rice or pasta in this soup. The focus of this dish is the vegetables and the meatballs.
This is a one pot healthy dinner option that can be made in less than 30 minutes! 30 minute meals are always the best. Make ahead and freeze for a quick weeknight meal. You can also make extra turkey meatballs and freeze to use in soups or with spaghetti.
These healthy greens are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. Broccoli is full of fiber to keep you full way past bed time. This is the perfect soup to help ward off sickness this cold season.

This soup with be sure to satisfy and warm you up on a chilly night.
Top with Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes and a squeeze of lemon juice. I like my soup on the spicy side so I serve extra crushed red pepper on the table.
Feel free to add any vegetables you have on hand. Carrots, onion, zucchini, or tomatoes would go great with this!
