An easy Albondigas Soup? Yes, you'll find that here. What an easy recipe this is. So good ... so VERY good! Quick. Easy. Delicioso! With just the right hint of spiciness and wonderful taste. And for those who don't know what this is, it's a famous Mexican meatball soup recipe. 'Albondigas' translated is 'meatballs' and this soup is very traditional. And why is it on my German recipe website? Check below!
My only changes to this very traditional soup are to make it quick and, perhaps, healthier. If you are using bouillon cubes, put the kettle on to boil when you first start making the soup. That way, when it's time to add the water, you can add boiling hot water. Makes it faster for the resulting soup to come to simmering point.
Heat oil in large soup pot. Sauté onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add carrots, celery, and rice. Stir and continue cooking for about 2 - 3 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients.
Bring to simmer, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes or until the rice is tender.
Remove bay leaves and season with salt and pepper if needed.

What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
A bit of this and a bit of that ...
The traditional recipe uses white rice. I prefer using brown since it is healthier. If you use white rice, the cooking time is shortened to about 25 minutes.
Use bouillon cubes and water to make beef stock if needed.
I was looking for a different type of beef soup recipe.
Didn't find what I wanted in my German cookbooks. I came across this Mexican recipe that I just had to try. Made some changes ... made it easier ... perhaps it's not the original recipe, but it sure is delicious!
German. Nope. So, it's among my Non German favorites!
If you're looking for German soups, then Oma's book, above, is what you're looking for.
