  • 1 package of The Abbot’s Butcher brand vegan meatballs
  • ¼ t. ground cumin
  • ½ c. cooked brown rice
  • ¼ c. chopped fresh mint or cilantro
  • ¼ t. salt
  • 2 flax “eggs” (mix 1 T. ground flax meal with 6 T. warm water; let sit for 20 minutes to thicken)
  • Several grinds of fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 T. panko breadcrumbs

Soup Ingredients

  • 1 c. chopped onion

Meatball Directions

  1. Remove meatballs from the package and break up in mixing bowl with a spoon or your hands. Add all other ingredients and blend until fully incorporated.
  2. Use hands to make meatballs about 2 inches in diameter. Pack together tightly so they will hold their shape. If the mixture is too wet, add additional panko breadcrumbs. Place meatballs on a plate in the fridge until ready to use.

Soup Directions

  1. Pour about ¼ cup of the vegetable stock into a soup pan and heat to medium-high.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients except cilantro and bring to a boil.
  3. When the soup is boiling drop the chilled meatballs into the soup one at a time. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Add chopped cilantro and stir until incorporated throughout the soup.
  5. Serve in bowls with additional chopped cilantro.
