Meatball lentil greens soup? Help me brainstorm here.
Well, running low on groceries and won't be shopping until next Monday. I've kind of brainstormed an idea but my BF told me it sounds disgusting. I however thought it sounded good, reminds me of the Campbell Selectives Italian wedding soup (with little meatballs, spinach, and tiny round noodles in a chicken broth.)
So I have some ground beef, onions, lentils, and mustard greens (I find this to be a good spinach replacement when I have no spinach.) I also have chicken boillioun, seasonings, garlic, and celery.)
I thought I would pre-cook some lentils and set aside.
I thought I could make up tiny little meatballs with the ground beef, bake them, drain any accumulated grease, and set aside. Then start a pot with the chicken stock made from boilloiun (no, I can't spell it) and add the meatballs, celery, onions, mustard greens and lentils.
I thought it sounded good... but any suggestions or tips or am I crazy, does this sound disgusting?
