Egg Drop Matzo Ball Soup- the Ultimate Comfort Food! by What Jew Wanna Eat 12

It’s almost the most magical time of the year! No, not Christmas, gentiles can keep their eggnog and gingerbread cookies. Okay, I’ll take one cookie. I mean national Eat Chinese Food and Watch a Movie Day. While this isn’t exactly a real holiday yet, give it a few years. It will catch on. Normally, we get takeout a settle in with Home Alone ( 1, 2 or 3. Not 4). But I like to experiment from time to time. Whole Foods gave me a $25 gift card to craft up some seasonal recipe using any of their kosher products. (And scroll down below to win a gift card of your own to experiment with!) I tried the Organic Imagine Kosher Chicken broth below and I was super impressed with the taste and texture- the closest to homemade I’ve ever seen! And perfect for my Egg Drop Matzo Ball Soup.

First, make your matzo balls. Whisk 1/2 cup of stock with eggs. Then whisk in matzo meal, onion, oil (or schmaltz!) salt and pepper. Since the dough will be sticky, refrigerate it for 30 minutes. These are some sinker matzo balls, but feel free to use your Bubbe’s recipe if you like!

When you are ready to cook, form matzo meal concoction into about 12 1-inch balls.

I used these crazy blue eggs I got at the farmer’s market for my soup!

Now, make your soup. Whisk 1/2 cup chicken stock with cornstarch. Bring remaining 9 cups broth to a boil with soy sauce and half of the green onions.  Gently place matzo balls in broth and lower to a simmer and cover. Cook 30 minutes until matzo balls are cooked through.

Bring heat back up to a boil and drizzle in the remaining eggs in stream slowly and stir them in to make streams. Then add in cornstarch mixture to thicken.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with more green onions and serve.

    Whole Foods has some of the most wonderful cheeses and great crackers…the gift card would afford me the opportunity to invite a few of my neighbors in my seniors only development over one afternoon for coffee/tea and a variety of cheese, crackers and my homemade pecan pie. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I’d love to make this soup, and I don’t need to buy anything! I’d use it for organic fruits that look soo good in the store, persimmons, satsumas, raspberries, blackberries, pomegranates… for sharing with holiday company!

    I would totally make that soup – love egg drop and what’s not to love about a matzo ball? There is a rumor that we’re getting a Whole Foods RIGHT NEAR us! Until then, we have to make a bit of a drive to get to one. That would be so much nicer to have one here.

    I would make my special quiche and use the card to get a roast turkey as well for the holidays! Thanks for the chance! :)

  5. Danielle says
