*This recipe was developed for Stainless Steel Food Jars SW-EAE35/50. Adjustments may be required for making this recipe in other Food Jar models.

*Please make sure not to overfill the food jar with ingredients, as ingredients will expand with cooking, and may cause the lid to burst.

Preheat the food jar by pouring boiling water (not included in the ingredients list). Close the lid and allow to preheat. 

Place chicken stock in a sauce pan, heat on low. 

Place all meatball ingredients in a bowl and mix well with hands. Make 3/4” diameter meatballs and drop into the chicken stock as you make.

Add escarole, salt, and pepper to the sauce pan. Crank up the heat to high and bring to boil and cook for one minute or until heated through. Skim the surface if needed. 

Discard hot water from the food jar and fill with prepared soup from step #4 until 1 cm below the ridge. Close lid, allow soup to set for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 6 hours. The soup will complete cooking itself in the food jar.

Just before serving, sprinkle Parmesan cheese. Make sure to consume within 6 hours to prevent from spoiling.
