Despite all my years of loving Italian Wedding Soup, it was only very recently that I discovered it isn’t something that is actually eaten at Italian weddings. Rather the “wedding” part of the soup title refers to the combination or marriage of the meats and greens. Which, I’m sure we can all agree, is a match made in heaven.
There are a couple tricks in this recipe that make this particular take on Italian Wedding Soup truly something special. Firstly, the addition of minced onion in the meatballs makes them both tender and aromatic. Secondly, be sure not to skip the step of searing the meatballs before adding them to the soup. This gives the veggies a rich depth of flavor you wouldn’t otherwise achieve. And thirdly, is the addition of lemon juice at the end. This gives it a nice acidity that really brightens up the flavors.
This soup is perfect for a chilly fall or winter evening with classic flavors that the whole family will love!
