This easy meatball soup recipe is sure to satisfy!

This easy meatball soup, also known as almondigas, is super delicious and easy to make. It combines a basic meatball, made even more flavorful with a handful of cabbage for flavor, texture, and tenderness, with a garlic broth. Misua, or thin rice noodles, completes the meal. 

You can add slices of patola, upo, or whatever vegetable you like for a more hearty bowl of soup.
