Instructions:

Step 1: Make the Tiny Meatballs

In a medium bowl mix all the meatball ingredients very well. Measure 3/4 teaspoon of the meatball mixture and roll it into a ball with your palms. Set the little meatball on a large plate. Repeat until all the mixture has been rolled into meatballs. Set meatballs aside.


Step 2: Make the Soup

In a Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on high. Add minced onions and garlic and saute briefly until shiny. Add 4 cups stock and bring to a boil. Stir in frozen spinach until thawed. Turn down heat to medium. Stir soup into a whirl and slowly pour in whipped egg. Sprinkle grated parmesan on top and stir. Carefully place the tiny meatballs into the boiling broth. Simmer soup for 10 minutes. Add konjac couscous at the very end.


Serve with a little shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano on top. Pair with bubbly Brut Champagne.
