Vegan Matzo Ball Soup Recipe

This Rosh Hashanah I decided to find a new recipe for vegan matzo ball, because during my last Passover I did not have much luck with the recipes I found on the web that used tofu or egg re-placer's. The matzo balls from those recipes just fell apart when I boiled them in broth (and not even for a long time either).

Also, I wanted a bean free recipe. This includes SOY.

So, I found this recipe on KCRW's food recipe. So far it has not let me down. : ]. I cannot be so grateful to have found this fool proof vegan matzo ball recipe. Hope you can enjoy it as much as me.

Below is the borrowed recipe from KCRW.



Ingredients 
1 large unpeeled Yukon Gold potato (about 10 ounces)
1/2 cup matzoh meal, or more as needed
2 tablespoons potato starch
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons chopped dill (may substitute finely chopped flat-leaf parsley)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons club soda (may substitute water)


Directions


Place the potato in a medium saucepan; cover with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook uncovered for about 25 minutes or until fork-tender. Transfer to a colander to drain and cool for 10 minutes; discard the skin.

Cut the potato into halves or quarters. Use a potato ricer to create fluffy potato strands, letting them fall into a medium mixing bowl. Add the matzoh meal, potato starch, onion powder, salt, pepper and dill to taste, then the vegetable oil and club soda. Mix until thoroughly combined, adding a little matzoh meal if the mixture seems too wet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.

Bring a large, wide pot of water to a boil over high heat.

Meanwhile, shape the chilled mixture into 12 to 14 balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Drop no more than 8 of them at a time into the water and reduce the heat to medium or medium-low; cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until floating and tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate.

Serve warm, in warmed vegetable broth.
