Ingredients

1 large egg

2 tablespoons water

1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs

1 pound lean ground turkey

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

2 cloves garlic, grated

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 cup chopped carrots

1 large shallot, sliced

10 cups chicken broth

1/2 cup dry white wine

3/4 cup orzo

1 large bunch dinosaur kale, coarsely chopped

salt and pepper to taste

Steps

1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2 Whisk egg and water together in a bowl. Mix in bread crumbs and let stand 5 minutes. Add turkey, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper; stir gently to blend. Shape mixture into 1 1/4-inch diameter meatballs using wet hands. Place meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, 15 to 30 minutes.

3 Coat chilled meatballs in 1 tablespoon olive oil.

4 Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes.

5 Pour remaining olive oil into a heavy soup pot over medium heat. Add carrots and shallot; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and wine. Bring to a boil, add orzo, and reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, until orzo is tender, about 5 minutes. Add kale and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes more. Add cooked meatballs and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
