Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup raw white rice
  • 1 quart plus 2 cups chicken stock, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground meatloaf mix (a combination of beef, pork and veal)
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice, eyeball it in your palm
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coriander, half a palm full
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika, eyeball it in your palm
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced with a vegetable peeler into strips then finely chopped
  • 1/2 -3/4 head Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • Handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons dill, finely chopped
Directions

Heat a sauce pot over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of extra-virgin olive oil, about 2 tablespoons. Add the rice and toss to coat in oil. Add 2 cups of chicken stock, bring up to a simmer, cover and cook for 16 to 18 minutes or until the rice is tender.

Heat a deep pot over medium high heat. Add the remaining extra-virgin olive oil, once hot add meat and begin to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the meat with allspice, coriander, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Add bay leaf, onions, garlic and carrots. Cook veggies 2 to 3 minutes to begin to soften them, then add cabbage and wilt it down a bit. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, and remaining stock and cover the pot. Raise the heat to high and bring the soup to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Once the rice is cooked, add to the soup and continue to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in parsley and dill, adjust salt and pepper to your taste, and serve.
