Combine soup ingredients in large saucepan over low heat to simmer (reserve snow pea pods and carrots for broiling or stir frying).Prepare meatballs: stir ingredients together, shape into 1 1/4" meatballs and place on lightly oiled broiler pan. Spray lightly with an olive oil spray if you used very lean meat. Broil until nicely browned or bake at 400° 15 minutes.To roast the baby carrots, cut carrots in half, lengthwise. Rub in one or 2 tablespoons of olive or peanut oil, and sprinkle between the meatballs on the broiler pan. Do the same with the thawed snow peas.Check while broiling, and remove carrots, snow peas, and meatballs as they begin to brown. Drain on paper towels briefly and add to soup. If you wish to skip this step, you may alternatively brown the meatballs, snow peas, and carrots in a wok.With all ingredients now in soup, simmer over low heat 15 to 20 minutes and season to taste with salt, pepper, a pinch of Chinese Red Pepper, if desired, and a dash of soy sauce.
Broccoli is available year-round from California, and available from Washington from June through October.
