I have done this without the starch. I finely mince onion and garlic and herbs and mix them into the meat with normal seasonings (usually some cumin and red pepper flakes in there). I gently lower them into a gently simmering broth of garlic, onion, celery, cilantro, parsley and anything else I want to toss in, like a carrot. If i have some left over broth in the freezer, that's handy too. What a wonderful light soup. Reply
