Speedy Meatball Curry Soup

Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 mins

Sometime you just want a speedy lunch or dinner and this is when a bit of meal prep beforehand comes into its own. I used my hidden vegetable curry sauce (recipe on the website), some extra veg and a packet of cooked meatballs I had bought in B&M/Farmfoods. Most people would look at these and think a packet of 12 small meatballs isn't enough to make a meal but with a few extra ingredients you can make a curry, a soup or a stew with these. I didn't want a pasta meal or anything too tomatoey, so I made my curry sauce into a soup. I didn't have to add anything other than a bit of stock to thin it down to soup consistency as there were enough spices in the sauce to begin with. The meatballs are Chicken and Chorizo bites which lend really well towards adding more depth to the curry. At £1 a packet they also add to our ethos of using cheap ingredients to make a meal go further. This made 4 filling bowls that everyone was happy with. You could easily adapt this and use any cooked meat/sausages etc that you have available and any other veg too. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below.
