Scale

Ingredients

  • 10 cups stock
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup matzo meal
  • ¼ cup green onions, plus more for garnish
  • ¼ cup shiitake mushrooms, minced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, minced, plus more for garnish
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, plus more to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup carrots, julienne
  • ½ cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 jalapenos, sliced
  • 6 lime wedges

Instructions

  1. First, make your matzo balls. In a medium bowl, whisk ½ cup of stock with eggs. Then mix in matzo meal, green onions, minced shiitake mushrooms, minced cilantro, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Since the dough will be sticky, refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
  2. When you are ready to cook, form matzo meal concoction into about fourteen 1-inch balls.
  3. Now, make your soup. Bring a large stockpot of water to a boil. Lower to a simmer and add matzo balls. Cover and cook for 20-30 minutes until matzo balls puff up and are cooked through.
  4. In a separate stockpot, add remaining broth, ginger, balsamic vinegar, carrots and mushrooms and simmer for 10-15 minutes until flavors meld and carrots and mushrooms are cooked.
  5. Add matzo balls to the soup and serve with jalapeno, cilantro, green onions and lime as garnish!
