Tender Matzo Balls in a rich stock.

Recipe by:




1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, egg whites and oil; slowly stir in seltzer. Add matzo meal, salt and pepper and stir until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Wash hands after handling raw eggs.

4. Fill a large saucepan half full of cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. When matzo mixture has chilled, roll into 1-inch balls and drop them into the boiling water. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 40 minutes or just until the matzo balls are cooked through to a dumpling-like consistency.

5. In a separate large saucepan over medium-high heat, bring chicken broth, carrots, celery and dill to a soft boil. Using a slotted spoon, transfer several matzo balls from the boiling water to each soup bowl and ladle the hot chicken broth mixture over top.
