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
