Chinese Green Soup with Meatballs

The Chinese Green Soup with Meatballs is a convenient and nutritious option for busy housewives in need of a quick and satisfying dinner. This soup, served best with white rice, offers a deliciously easy and comforting option for a wholesome meal. The key ingredients include homemade or store-bought meatballs, water or chicken broth, garlic, salt, black pepper, and a selection of Chinese greens like bok choy, Napa, Choy Sum, or wong bok.

The preparation begins by boiling water or chicken broth in a medium-sized pot. The meatballs are then added to the pot and cooked until they float to the surface, indicating they are fully cooked. To enhance the flavor profile, spices including smashed garlic, salt, and black pepper are introduced, infusing the soup with aromatic depth.

Next, the Chinese greens are added to the pot and allowed to cook until they reach a tender consistency. The choice of greens provides a nutritious and vibrant element to the soup. To further enrich the flavor, Korr chicken bouillon powder is incorporated, contributing a savory depth to the broth. Once the greens are tender, the heat is turned off, and the soup is garnished with chopped green onions.

To ensure the soup meets individual taste preferences, adjustments can be made with additional fish sauce (for more saltiness) or soy sauce. Finally, the hot and flavorful Chinese Green Soup with Meatballs is served over a bed of steaming white rice, creating a satisfying and well-rounded meal.
