Italian Wedding Soup

It’s Seriously Soup day today, featuring one of my favorite bloggers, Serena, who authors a blog called Seriously Soupy.  Serena started Seriously Soupy as a creative outlet for herself after her first daughter was born, which combined her passion for cooking with an interest in learning more about soups and soup making.  Since it started, she has given soup tours and taught soup classes and has a catalog of over 100 soups on the site!  You can join Serena on her Soupy journey at and twice a month you can find her here, at My Judy the Foodie, sharing her wisdom and helping demystify the world of soup.

Here’s what Serena has to say:

I recently saw this Italian Wedding Soup recipe on The Kitchn and instantly knew this was my next Soupy experiment. Since I never tried or prepared this soup, I was excited to test out what was described as being “simple to prepare, but has enough flourishes.” I also learned that a variation of this Italian-American soup was also wildly prepared in Spain with a variety of meats that are boiled and shredded.

I used the recipe as a base – especially as I attempted a new technique (cooking an egg into the soup) and a fun way to prepare meatballs (adding cheese to the meat then cooking it). This really enhanced the flavors of the stock and of course the meat itself.

The recipe also used hearty kale (can also use with spinach, endive, escarole, etc) and the delicious flavorings of oregano, basil and thyme – that made for the perfect winter soup.
