TBT - Magnificent Meatball Minestrone
Paleo Nick has the market cornered on meal prep. Case in point: today's Thursday Throwback to his Magnificent Meatball Minestrone. In one cooking session, he knocked out a week's worth of meals and shared a few culinary ninja tips along the way.
The meatballs are mixed in your biggest mixing bowl, then browned beautifully on the stovetop. The minestrone bit will come together with tons of veggies, some crushed tomatoes and a hearty addition of fresh chicken stock. There's some meatball action in there, and a process to the veggie cooking, but for the most part, this recipe is simple and straightforward.
Along the way, Nick shares his secret for the most tender and flavorful meatballs ever and tells you all about the carrot litmus test (useful stuff!).
Find a lovely assistant or two if you can, or just stay quick on your feet to brown those meatballs and get your minestrone on. Either way, you'll have food for the week and the satisfaction of a job well done. Eat, enjoy and hey...
"Keep it Paleo!"
