An incredible Albondigas soup which is a traditional Mexican meatball soup loaded with vegetables and full of flavor.
Albondigas soup is a traditional Mexican Soup and albondigas simply means meatballs. In Mexico albondigas are usually served in a light broth with all sort of vegetables.
Meatball soup is a true comfort food, whether it’s my old time favorite Romanian meatball soup or Italian meatball soup. I am, however, very fond of this Mexican style meatball soup. It’s quite light but very hearty and you can load it with vegetables. I ended up only using carrots and potatoes because that’s all I happened to have in the fridge, but you can use green beans, zucchini, yellow squash or celery.
The beauty of this soup is also how simple it is. But I love all the different herbs in this soup. I finally got a chance to use quite a few of the different herbs hubs was cooking up in the garden. Fresh mint, oregano, parsley and cilantro. I used them all. And what a great aroma and flavor it gives to the soup. There’s nothing like fresh herbs….
