How to Make Low Carb Italian Wedding Soup
Start by adding the salt, pepper, paprika, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder in a bowl with the ground beef and thoroughly mix together.
Then form the ground beef mixture into mini meatballs and set aside. I put mine on a sheet pan for convenience, as you can see below, but they are not cooked on the sheet pan and will be added to the soup later.
Now go ahead and chop up the onions, celery, and bell pepper as directed and then saute over a medium heat until soft.
Next, add the gluten free unsalted chicken stock, garlic, salt and pepper to a large pan with the vegetables, then add the minced clove of garlic, and finally add the mini meatballs.
Simmer for about 20 minutes and then add the spinach for only two or three minutes right at the end, it will wilt quickly in the hot soup. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, then serve with parmesan cheese.
Where does the name Italian wedding soup come from?
The origin of the name “Italian Wedding Soup” comes from the Italian phrase “minestra maritata” which means “married soup” and appears to be a reference to the flavor combination of the greens and the meat.
