Serves: 6
  • 6 large organic eggs
  • 2 oz. organic Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large organic onion, finely chopped
  • 1 whole organic lemon, cut into wedges
  • 6 c. organic chicken broth
  • 1 head organic endive, coarsley chopped
  • 1 pound ground pasture-raised turkey
  • 2 slices Food for Life Brown Rice Bread
  1. First, make breadcrumbs. Toast bread and place in a Magic Bullet or blender to grind.
  2. Pour breadcrumbs into a small dish and combine with basil, parsley and oregano.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, breadcrumbs, half the eggs, half of the Parmesan and half of the salt and pepper. Roll the mixture into ¾-inch meatballs and set aside.
  4. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and slightly browned, about 8 minutes.
  5. Pour in the broth, increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Add the meatballs and return to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the meatballs are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Stir in the endive.
  6. In a small bowl, lightly beat the remaining eggs with 2 tablespoons water and remaining salt and pepper.
  7. Slowly drizzle the egg mixture into the simmering broth, pushing the meatballs and escarole aside.
  8. Stir in the remaining Parmesan cheese
  9. Serve with lemon wedges.
