This week I am making some traditional albondigas soup while getting high because this is the only way I know how to cook! Plus my finger is still really gross and weird so I wanted comfort food and albondigas is my favorite of all the sopas.
For the Albondiags (Meatballs)
2 packages of impossible meat
2 chia seed egg ( 2tbs of chia seeds + 6 tbs of hot water, let sit for 5-10 minutes)
1 clove of garlic
1/4 of small onion
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix your chia egg, then set aside. Place garlic and onion in a mortar or blender, with salt and pepper crush together. Place in a mixing bowl with impossible meat and chia binder. Mix, and then roll into balls. Set aside
For the Soup:
1/4 of small onion
2 cloves of garlic
3 chilies in adobo with some of the sauce
1/2-1 bunch of cilantro (depending on preferences)
Vegetables ( I usually do 2 zucchinis, 2 carrots, potatoes. Will add other veggies if they need to be used up)
2-3 tbs of butter/oil
Heat a soup pot on medium heat, and let the butter/oil melt. Place your veggies in, add a little salt and pepper, and let cook up for flavor.
Optional is to let the veggies mainly cook, and remove the veggies so they don’t over cook. Or you can leave in the pot and cook with the albondigas. I chose to remove the veggies to keep some of the crunch in them.
In a blender, or blender cup; add 3 roughly chopped tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/4 of onion, 3 chilies with adobo, fill with water start with approx 32 oz of water. Let blend until liquified.
Pour the tomato mix into the soup pot, and then add another approx 32 oz of water. Bring up to a simmer, and then add your meatballs carefully. I like to place the albondigas in a laddle then slowly drop them in. Add as much or as little cilantro as you want, then let cook in a simmer for 15-20 minutes. If you removed the vegetables let cook for 15 minutes, then add the vegetables back in the soup. I like to let the soup come to a quick boil to warm the veggies and then remove from heat and serve.
If you want to make this with cannabis add a pad of cannabutter or some cannaoil to your own boil.
Usually you eat this with a bowl of rice on the side, or you can put rice in your bowl and pour the soup over the rice. I hope you love this soup, and it makes your week feel a little bit better!
