Melt the butter and sauté the onions, garlic, celery, carrots and courgettes over medium heat. Cover the vegetables with a sheet of wax paper, place the lid on top and slowly braise the vegetables for 5 minutes. Add the rice and remaining soup ingredients and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer slowly for 1 hour. Meanwhile prepare the meatballs by mixing all the ingredients by hand. Shape into small balls and add to the soup after it has simmered for 1 hour. Simmer for another 15 minutes until the meatballs are done. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Serve hot with freshly baked bread and butter. Makes about 2 litres soup.
