Every bite of this heartwarming soup is full of savory flavor and nourishing veggies. It features meatballs and leafy green vegetables—typically spinach, escarole, or kale. Most leafy greens are high in iron, but the iron content in the meatball boosts the bioavailability of dietary iron. Other nutritional benefits:
- Spinach is a rich source of vitamins C, E, and A.
- Eating your greens in soup gives you a nutritional bonus because the vitamin and mineral content is retained in the liquid.
- To cut back on saturated fat, we replaced the traditional beef and pork with ground turkey. Turkey meatballs are a hearty and filling choice. They help provide a whopping 24 grams of protein per serving to keep your body strong.
