  • In a soup pot, fry the onion and peppers in 100 ml of sunflower oil and put one spoon of sea salt.
  • After frying these for about 5 minutes, onions and peppers should just soak, put the shredded vegetables and let them frying for about 5 minutes.
  • Turn the water around 1.5 l, put two tablespoons of vegetable mix, a spoon of freshly ground pepper and let it boil.
  • Remove the minced meat from the refrigerator, and form a nut size balls. After the soup started boiling, put the meatballs in the pot to boil. Let's cook for medium heat, about 30-35 minutes, until the meatballs boiled, depending on their size.
  • About 10 minutes before it was ready, I put in the soup about 250 g of frozen peas and two stalks of celery. At the end, we seasoned with half a lemon juice, half a handful of chopped parsley, taste, and if we still need to put it more from the vegetable mix.
