Gluten free, high protein Matzo Ball Soup is a Passover classic. Chicken soup with matzo balls can also be considered Jewish penicillin, and a favorite remedy for a cold or the flu; however this is primarily a staple recipe for Passover. Did you know that all of my recipes are kosher for Passover?
Passover is one of my favorite holidays. I adore holidays that involve a change of seasons and Passover, occurring each year in March or April (depending on the full moon), ushers in spring.
Like most other families who grew up celebrating this holiday, we had matzoh ball soup every year. My grandmother made this soup. My mother made this soup. And now I have made this soup! My children will be at least the fourth generation of my family to partake in matzo balls!
I made a test batch today for my family to sample and was given the thumbs up. I will be serving this soup and other gluten free Jewish food at our Passover seder, which falls on Monday, April 2nd, this year.
