For the mirepoix:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup onion diced
  • ¼ cup carrots diced
  • ½ cup celery hearts and leaves diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced
  • ½ teaspoon fresh rosemary minced

For the soup:

  • 12 cups gluten-free chicken stock
  • 5 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 2 celery stalks sliced
  • 1 pound parsnips peeled and sliced
  • 1 large leek cleaned and sliced

For the meatballs:

  • pounds ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 cup frozen spinach thawed and squeezed to remove extra water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh onion grated
  • 1 teaspoon garlic finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • cup Parmesan cheese optional
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • Few turns of cracked black pepper


  • Make the mirepoix by melting the butter in a large pot and adding the onions, carrots, and celery. Add the garlic and herbs and stir to combine. Cook until translucent.
  • Add the stock and remaining soup ingredients to the pot and turn on medium-high heat, cooking on a low boil for 15-20 minutes.
  • While the soup is cooking, make the meatballs. In a large bowl, add all ingredients in order listed, and mix well. Form the balls and drop slowly with a slotted spoon into the soup. If the meat mixture is too sticky to form balls, refrigerate for 30-60 minutes while your soup simmers on low. Once the meatballs have been added, simmer an additional 30-45 minutes.
