Italian Wedding Soup with Beyond Meat (V)

I highly doubt any vegan version of this soup will come near my mommom's traditional Italian wedding soup, but this recipe definitely scratches the itch.


Italian Wedding Soup with Beyond Meat

Source: The Cheeky Chickpea | Serves: 6-8 | Time: 40 min


Changes: skipped cabbage because I've never had Italian wedding soup with cabbage; doubled spinach to make up for the lack of cabbage; skipped dill because I feel like it just doesn't make sense for a Mediterranean meal.


Ingredients

4 beyond meat hot italian vegan sausages

1 to 2 tablespoons oil

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 celery rib, diced

1 and 1/2 cups carrots, diced

3 - 4 garlic cloves, chopped

8 cups veggie broth (always homemade to reduce sodium)

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 teaspoon each of dried italian seasoning

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt (add more at end if needed)

1/3 to 1/2 cup uncooked orzo pasta

4 cups spinach, packed

1 tsp to 2 tbsp lemon juice


Instructions

Meatballs: Preheat the oven to 425° and line a baking sheet with parchment. Add sausages to a bowl and remove casings if you like. Mix together and roll into small meatballs, 1 tablespoon in size (not heaped). You should get around 35 meatballs. Place evenly on the prepared pan and bake for 12 minutes and set aside.


Start the soup: while the meatballs are cooking, start the soup. Add the oil, onions, carrots, celery, and pinch of salt and pepper to a soup pot/dutch oven. Cook over medium heat for 8 minutes until the veggies start to soften. Stir in the garlic until fragrant.


Simmer: Pour in the veggie stock, fresh parsley, the dried spices and salt. Bring to a boil on high heat. Cover and reduce to a good simmer for 10 minutes.


Add meatballs and pasta: Uncover and stir in the pasta and meatballs, bring back up to a boil on high heat. Cover and reduce to a simmer again for 7 to 8 minutes or until pasta is cooked.


Season and serve: Remove from heat, stir in the spinach, dill and vinegar if using. Season with salt and pepper and add more broth if needed. Serve and enjoy!
