Slowcooker Gluten-free Italian Wedding Soup Recipe - From Val's Kitchen

Italian Wedding Soup is one of the soups that my hubby enjoys the most. I modified it a little in order to make it gluten-free. Where many people typically use tiny pasta I used rice. I love slowcooked soups, so decided to go that route. I used the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System to make this. You could make it in a typical slowcooker but it would take a bit longer.

Slowcooker Gluten-free Italian Wedding Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 6 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 cup potato flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 4 chicken boullion cubes
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked instant rice

Slowcooker Gluten-free Italian Wedding Soup Recipe - From Val's Kitchen

Instructions

Cut the carrots and onions and place into the Ninja.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, potato flakes, Italian seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder and mix well.

Form small meatballs, using either a melon baller, soup spoon, ice cream scoop or your hands.

Place the meatballs into the Ninja.

Pour the chicken broth into the Ninja. (I make the broth in a mug using the Keurig, then stir and pour in.)

Cook on slowcooker high for 1 hour 45 minutes.

Add the spinach and the rice and cook on high for 15 minutes.

Serve immediately.

These meatballs weren’t enormous, they are as big or small as you make them.

The hubs and I are always looking for more slow cooker recipes. The fact that this soup is gluten free means we will have to try this SOON.

I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but I’ve never had wedding soup. I’ve heard of it but really never knew what it was. Now I want to try it for sure!

Yes! The only thing I changed from a traditional Italian wedding soup is using rice instead of tiny pasta to make it gluten-free.

I haven’t heard of this soup before. I noticed that the recipe calls for chicken. Then in your directions, you say meatballs. Do you form meatballs with the chicken?

Reply

Yes they are chicken meatballs.
