matzo ball soup

i love matzo ball soup.  (i’m not jewish.)

i passed by a huge box of manischewitz matzo at costco and that’s what inspired tuesday’s menu, literally and this blog.  i’ve been preparing lunches for quite a few tuesdays now, so i figured i should collect my tuesday recipes and make my own virtual cook bloog(k).

chicken soup with miniature leek-chive matzo ball

these were the ingredients & my substitutions (i’m not big on following recipes to the “t”).  i was able to make 42 mini matzo balls from this recipe.  and i was able to make them the night before.

  • 6 TBS (3/4 stick) unsalted pareve margarine vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup packed finely chopped leek (white and pale green parts only) didn’t have, and didn’t want to run to the store at 10:30pm.
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 4 eggs (5 eggs)
  • 2 TBS ginger ale seltzer water (i dumped in 4 TBS since i had a whole litre of seltzer)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup unsalted matzo meal (i threw ~10 pieces of matzo into the food processor, and then forgot to measure if it was a cup.  so i’m thinking it’s more like than 1 1/4 cup.)
  • 12 cups chicken broth

for the rest of the instructions click on the link above (from bon appetit), and for a broth recipe(and another matzo recipe) from a jewish cook check out smitten kitchen.

p.s. i don’t think i’ve ever had “sinker” matzo balls.

p.s.s. and i forgot to take pictures of my mini matzo balls. 😦
