I made Matzoh Ball Soup for the first time today, in honor of Passover. No, it’s not a holiday I celebrate personally, but I saw the instant mix in the store, and it was cold and dreary outside, and I thought, “Why not?”
Here’s the mix I used….
and here’s the finished product…
It was delicious! The box says “makes 9 to 12 matzoh balls” but if you’re doing it correctly, you’ll end up with 12. Don’t make them any larger than 1″ round (like a ping pong ball) because they double in size when you cook them. In addition to the mix, you’ll need two eggs and some vegetable oil. I also sprinkled some dried parsley into the soup when it was done to add a splash of color. It’s basically instant chicken broth with dumplings, but it was just the thing to warm me up on a chilly Spring night. Definitely worth giving this mix a try. I’ve made other instant products by Manischewitz (potato latkes, in particular) and I’ve always had great results.
