Greek Meatball Soup

Winter is coming and nothing beats the cold weather like a warming soup.

Soup recipes should be a staple for the budget-conscious kitchen. They’re easy to make in big batches and store in the freezer. They’re also really satisfying and healthy — but definitely not boring!

This soup is inspired by all the Greek flavours and uses lean beef mince to add some protein.

This a perfect go-to meal when it’s cold outside and you want something on the table fast. It reheats really well which makes it perfect for making ahead and packing for lunches.

If you’re looking for a healthy soup, this is perfect. It contains foods high in vitamins and minerals such as carrots (high in beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants), celery (vitamin A and vitamin C), courgettes (vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C and K, potassium and manganese) and olives (vitamin E).

Although the Mediterranean diet generally advises to reduce your red meat consumption, the occasional bite won’t hurt. If you’re watching your saturated fat intake, get the lean versions.

Grass fed beef is also a lot more nutritious compared to grain-fed. Fresh lean beef is rich in various vitamins and minerals, especially iron and zinc.
