INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic
  • 16 oz Escarole
  • 2 14.5 oz can Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 43 1/2 fl oz Tap Water
  • 1/2 tsp Rosemary (Dried)
  • 24 oz Ground Turkey
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (Grated)
  • 3 serving Atkins Low Carb Wheat Bread

DIRECTIONS

Please use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Low Carb Wheat Bread; you will need 3 slices.  Toast them until dry and then place in a blender to make 1/2 cup crumbs.
 
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Dice the scallions and add two-thirds of them to the pan; cook 3 minutes until softened. Add minced garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in escarole and mix to coat in oil. Add broth, water and 1/4 teaspoon of the rosemary; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, 10 minutes.
  2. For meatballs: Mix remaining diced green onions, turkey, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon rosemary. Form into 1 1/2-inch balls. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 3 minutes. Add to soup.
  3. Cook meatballs 5 minutes more, until cooked through. Ladle soup into bowls; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
