I first had matzo ball soup at Canter's Deli in Los Angeles. I was taken there by a Jewish friend to as she put it "pop my matzo cherry". Charmed I'm sure.
The soup was freaking delicious. Chicken soup with a big doughy kind of noodle thing in the middle? Yes please! More please!
There was a time that I thought I might birth a matzo ball given that was all I could eat while pregnant for a few weeks. I used to make it using store bought mix, but it was way too salty for me. I've blended a few various recipes from around the web to create a version for home. Sans the mix. I don't claim this is authentic or anything like that. But even if you're a gentile like me, I'm guessing this is something you'd enjoy.
Matzo ball soup
-2 stalks of celery
-parsley (maybe 2 tsp)
-sage (a pinch)
-salt & pepper to taste
-a shit ton of garlic
-stock (try homemade in the crockpot)
-1 cup matzo meal
-4 eggs, slightly beaten
In a mixing bowl, slightly beat 4 eggs, salt, and pepper.
Serve at least one ball per bowl. But it's much funnier to serve two. If you're new here, just a FYI - I'm 12.
