Sometimes when I do this stuff I run across dishes that are simply exceptional. This awesome soup is in that category. Highly recommended! I added pre cooked ditalini to the soup bowls just before serving and doubled up on the meatballs to make it bit more hearty and this worked beautifully.
A bit of rice wouldn't hurt. All in all a wonderful soup that is good enough to go into the rotation.

That looks terrific Gman.....how did the "sour" effect strike you? 
This is going on my to do list over the winter.

Truthfully, I did not notice any sourness.  The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.  Not enough to sour.  Perhaps this is due to the number of meatballs I added which surely increased the broth's fat content.  I'm sure it brightened the flavor.

I hope you do give this a try.  It is a keeper.

I've tried a couple of Slavic soups with "sour" as part of the description, but did not notice too much in the way of sourness; there was a hint, but it seemed to bring the soup into balance, in my opinion.

I'll be making this, as well - autumn and winter are the perfect times for meals such as this, to me, and I'm just plain "ready" for some good, traditional, home-style eating.

Many thanks for posting!
