Sopa de Albondigas

The most economical meat is chopped or ground, because it can be stretched with extenders such as grain or bread. This meatball soup, which has several names, is popular throughout the Sephardic community; a recipe for it is included in the first English-language Jewish cookbook, The Jewish Manual, written in 1842 by "a Lady."

1 carrot, diced
1 leek, sliced
1 rutabaga, sliced
1 parsnip, sliced

2 quarts water or broth
2 tablespoons tomato paste
salt and black pepper

for the meatballs

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef or lamb
1 cup cooked white rice

method

1. Place the vegetables in a large soup pot. Add the water or broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook for 30 minutes.
