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.

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)


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.
