Meatball Zucchini Soup


I found a recipe for a meatball and zucchini soup on Instagram.  I didn't have the exact ingredients, (although I'm sure that would've been lovely) so I used what I had on hand.  But I definitely want to try this with all the fresh herbs in the future.  Here's the link the original recipe by @pete_eatss:

Here's what I did for my variation.


4 cups water
1 Tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon fish sauce

Garlic mix:
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Meat mix:
1 pound ground pork
1 teaspoon sugar
Dash of salt
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
Garlic mix from above

1 small zucchini


  1. Add broth ingredients to a pot and heat on stove.
  2. Peel garlic.  Smash garlic with cracked black pepper with a mortar and pestle.
  3. Combine all meat mix ingredients and mix well.
  4. Drop 1-inch balls of the meat mix into broth and bring to boil.
  5. Scoop scum off top and discard.
  6. Add zucchini and boil for a few minutes until cooked through.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
