This recipes is my entry for this weeks Ninja Chefs Mystery Basket Challenge. When I saw the ingredients for the challenge my thoughts were instantly of some kind of soup, especially since it is now fall and the chilly weather. I made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious.

How to Make Oriental Meatball Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Meatballs:
    Mix ingredients until blended. Place on wax paper; pat into a 6-in square. Cut into 36 one inch squares. Roll each square into a ball.
  2. Bring chicken broth to a gentle boil in a 4 to 5 quart pot. Cut carrots in half diagonally. Add carrots to boiling chicken broth, cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes until almost tender.
  3. Add meatballs to pot, 1 at a time. Stir in contents of noodle seasoning packets and the broccoli. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 6 to 7 minutes until meatballs are done and vegetables are tender.
  4. Break each block of noodles in 4 pieces. Add to soup and cook, stirring to seperate strands, about one minute. Stir in sugar snap peas and boil gently 2 minutes or until noodles are tender and peas turn bright green. Stir in sesame oil; remove from heat. Garnish servings with scallions.
