Ingredients:

9 to 10 tablespoons grapeseed or olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large bunch asparagus, washed, thinly sliced and tough lower stems removed
5 leeks, white and light green part only, washed and thinly sliced
6 cups chicken stock or broth
1 pound ground chicken
sea salt and ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Heat a stockpot on medium-high heat. Add three tablespoons of oil.
  2. Add the onion and sauté until light brown, 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add the asparagus and leeks; sauté another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the ground chicken with salt and pepper. My ground chicken was sticking to my hands so I added some almond meal to dry it up a bit.
  6. Make small meatballs, about 1 inch diameter.
  7. In a large skillet, heat the remaining oil and fry the meatballs until browned on all sides.
  8. Add the meatballs to the soup, boil for a few minutes more then serve. Adjust the seasonings if needed.
  9. Enjoy!
