Get a wholesome and flavour-packed meal on the table in just 30 minutes with this hearty Thai Turkey Meatball Soup!
This Thai Turkey Meatball Soup is everything I’m craving these cold winter days.
It’s warm. It’s slurpy. It’s deeply heart-warming and SO satisfying. It’s one of those feel-better soups, whether you feel a bit under the weather, or just need something comfy and tasty to warm you up on a cold day.
This Thai turkey meatball soup has become one of my favorite things to eat this winter. It takes just about 30 minutes to make, so it’s perfect to quickly satisfy soup cravings. Flavour-wise, the vibrant Thai ingredients give a refreshing note, and the chili a nice spicy kick, resulting in a BIG bowl of flavor-packed soup.
The Thai-inspired turkey meatballs are the REAL star of this heart-warming soup. They have green onions, lime, ginger, garlic, chili and cilantro folded into them, providing an extra awesome burst of fresh and bold flavor.
To make the meatballs less “meaty” and nicely soft, I’ve added a few slices of bread soaked in milk, a trick I’ve learnt from my Italian mum.
I had some gluten-free multigrain bread loaf at hand, and the seeds added a great crunchy texture (plus extra nutrients!) to my meatballs. If you have this kind of bread at home go for it, or just use any other bread you like (gluten-free bread, french baguette, Italian ciabatta, etc), and even better if it’s from the day before.
To make things even lighter, I used fresh semi-skimmed a2 Milk™. I’ve been drinking this milk for years and cannot recommend it enough! The award-winning a2 Milk™ is simply pure cows milk which is naturally free from the A1 protein, so it’s easy to digest and gentle on sensitive tummies, like mine.
If you haven’t tried a2 Milk™ yet, I have got some awesome news for you! For a limited time only, you can pick up a ‘Try me FREE’ promotional bottle in store – Find your local stockist here (Limited offer, T&C’s apply.)
Now, let’s focus back on this incredibly tasty Thai turkey meatball soup.
Once you’ve got your meatballs ready, all you need to do is drop them into the hot broth together with a few veggies, whilst in another pot, soak the noodles until ready to serve.
Divide noodles, veggies and meatballs into bowls, ladle the broth over, and serve straight away. For an extra layer of flavour, top with fresh cilantro, chili and spring onion and serve with a wedge of lime.
I highly recommend using a good quality broth for this recipe. It really does make a difference. A good chicken broth is easy to make at home. You can also make a simple but delicious vegetable broth, takes literally 5 minutes to put together, and tastes a million times better than store-bought.
This Thai turkey meatball soup is simple, nutritious and awesomely gluten-free. The perfect filling meal for cold nights, when all you really want to do is make a quick dinner and cozy up on the sofa!
