Armenian Meatball Soup Recipe. Easy and Delicious

Updated on March 10, 2013

Meatballs in Soup

Easy Meatball Recipe

Healthy soups mean no guilt, and I highly recommend this recipe. I am not one to fall in love with meatball soup in general, but when I tried this for the first time, I knew I would add this great easy recipe to my all time favorite recipes. Even the pickiest guest return for seconds.

Armenian meatball soup is never boring. The flavor is rich and full due to the variety of ingredients.

This is an excellent recipe that suits a wide variety of different cultures and tastes. My long time Armenian friend and I created it together and served it to a diverse group of people who loved it so much that it was the hit of the pot luck. I had some of the best cooks in the group ask me for my special meatball soup recipe.

You won't know whether to add this to your recipes of healthy soup or to your great easy recipes collection.
