Cabbage Leek Soup with Antelope Meatballs (Recipe)

Enhance the flavor of antelope using spices that complement the meat. Antelope meatballs are mixed together with a little sage and a pinch of nutmeg. When the flavors blend with a creamy vegetable soup, you may just find yourself having seconds.

Top off your bowl of soup with a few fried leeks and serve with crackers or sourdough bread.

You can substitute elk or venison in place of antelope. Another suggestion would be elk sausage or venison sausage.
