Russian Meatball Soup

Russian meatball soup is usually called in Russia "Soup with frikadelki". It's a flavorful, healthy and hearty soup. I use ground beef for the meatballs in this recipe, but you can use ground pork or even chicken instead.

3. In a separate bowl, mix ground beef and minced garlic, add a little bit of fresh parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Using your hands, form small meatballs.
4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat and sear the meatballs until browned (about 5 minutes). Add to the soup. (I prefer to sear meatballs in order to get a clearer broth).
