Greek soup with zucchini meatballs
If you like meatball soup, but you are ready to try other interpretations of the classic chicken recipe, we suggest the pumpkin version. To obtain the meatballs you need: 2 pumpkins, 1 small chopped onion, 2-3 cloves of crushed garlic, half a bunch of chopped parsley, 1 egg and semolina (250g) to bind the composition.
Wash and peel the pumpkins and remove the seeds if they are large. Then pass them through a large grater, sprinkle with salt, mix well and drain in a large sieve for half an hour.
Meanwhile, start preparing the soup. For it you need 2 carrots, a parsnip root, half a celery root, 1 bunch of dill, 150g rice, 3 egg yolks, 200g sour cream, lemon juice to taste, salt and pepper. Wash and cut the vegetables into cubes and rinse the rice in some water, then boil them in water with salt and pepper. Choose the soup program for multicooker and set it to 15 minutes.
In the 15 minutes, take care of the meatballs. Squeeze the zucchini well and put them in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients for the meatballs, which you mix well until the composition is uniform. It takes a few minutes for the semolina to swell and give the right texture to the mixture. In order not to stick to your palms when forming the hairs, moisten your hands with water or a little oil. Form round meatballs, pass them through semolina and place them on a plate or on a wooden bottom until you can add them to the soup.
After the soup program is over, add the meatballs carefully, dividing them so that they do not touch each other. Set the multicooker for the manual cooking option and boil them for 5 minutes. When they are ready they will rise to the surface.
In a bowl, mix the egg yolks with sour cream and lemon juice. When the meatballs are ready and you can open the appliance, take the juice from the soup with a polish and pour it slowly into the mixture, in order to balance the temperature. Do this with 3-4 polishes, stirring, then pour all the contents of the bowl, slowly, into the soup.
The soup is almost ready. All you have to do is add the dill and then salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.
