If you want an exotic addition for a special dinner, give wombat meat a try. It’s delicious. Don’t know what a wombat is? Go here to see wombats. Cute, aren’t they? Feisty too, making them difficult to catch. So if you actually find a grocery that carries wombat meat and if you get blown away by the price, you’ll know why. It wasn’t easy getting that wombat.
How should wombat meat be cooked? Good question. Try one of my favorite recipes.
Vegetable and Meatball Soup
2 quarts vegetable or meat broth
1 quart water
1 lb ground meat, formed into 1 inch balls
5 small potatoes, cut in quarters
2 large carrots, sliced in chunks
1 package frozen peas (optional)
1 onion, rough chopped
2 tbs chopped parsley (optional)
olive oil, vegetable oil, or butter for sautéing
salt and pepper, to season
In a large stockpot over medium heat, sauté and soften onions with oil or butter. Add the water and broth. Bring the mixture to a quick boil then allow to simmer. Add the meatballs. Let the meatballs cook for 5 minutes then add the vegetables. Allow to cook until vegetables are tender but not soft. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped parsley.
Smile and serve.
For the meatballs, you can use beef, pork, or turkey. Or wombat meat, if you really want to.
Happy April Fools’ Day!
