The Soup Diva

While we are spending the majority of every day at home during the Coronavirus pandemic, I’m taking the opportunity to try new recipes. Since Passover is coming, I wanted to test my luck with matzo ball soup; and I consulted with our friend Sheila* who “opened the Mommy Encyclopedia” [with additional input from my friend Jamie, who makes her version of this soup often and whose in-laws are also Jewish].

For the soup:

  • 2 chicken breasts or 4 tenders
  • 32 oz chicken stock
  • 3-4 carrots, sliced or shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 onion, diced (½ cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp dried dill
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

For the balls:

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup matzo meal
  • 2 tbsp broth or water
  • pinch of salt

Equipment needed:

  • your 2 largest pots
  • small strainer
  • small mixing bowl
  • 1” food

Happy Passover My Jewish Friends #passover

Passover or Pesach is a major Jewish holiday and one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays. Together with Shavuot and Sukkot, Passover was one of the Three Pilgrimage Festivals during which the entire population of the kingdom of Judah made a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. 

To all my friends celebrating Passover I wish you peace, love, grace and many blessings. May G-d bless you all this and in the days ahead.
