Fire Roasted Tomato Soup with Turkey Meatballs

let the good thymes roll

I’m loving this delicious, healthy and little spicy spin on your typical minestrone soup. First, I skip the regular canned tomatoes and use organic fire roasted tomatoes to give this dish an extra kick. Instead of pasta, chickpeas do the trick here to add a nice texture and a dose of fiber. Ground turkey is my go to when making meatballs but you can all always substitute with another organic, grass-fed meat of your choice.

Freekeh Soup with Herby Chicken Apple Meatballs

provence youve been gone

This is one amazing bowl of soup. It’s hearty with chunks of vegetables and loaded with Freekeh, a middle eastern grain that is smoky and savory on its own. This soup is perfect for meal prepping because you can prepare a large pot and have plenty left over for the freezer and weekday lunches. Don’t skip the fresh marjoram, it makes the soup really fragrant and gives it even more flavor the next day.

Za’atar Spiced Lentil Meatballs With Sweet Potato Noodles

while my zaatar gently weeps

This is such a yummy and versatile recipe for any time of the year. The lentil mixture is wholesome and nutritiously packed with fresh vegetables. This recipe has quite a few ingredients, but my suggestion would be to double the recipe and freeze half of the lentil balls on a metal tray individually before putting them together in the freezer. They can last months and you will have these meatballs at the ready!
