Oma's Meatball Soup


Whenever we visited my grandparents in Tauranga, it meant we got to eat Oma's meatball soup. No matter how much Mum tried to emulate it, it was never the same. My version was pretty good but it just doesn't quite have the exact Oma flavour. I think it needed a touch of Maggi seasoning, found in all good Dutch kitchens- just not mine! 


Oma's Meatball Soup
250 gm of beef mince, seasoned with salt and pepper and rolled into little balls
75 gm vermicelli
5 sticks of celery
250 gm mixed green soup vegetables - carrot, leek, onion
fresh parsley
2 litres of beef stock


Bring stock to the boil, add all vegetables. After 5 minutes, add the meatballs and vermicelli. Season. Cook for 5-10 minutes. Eet smakelijk!
