What Is Matzo Ball Soup?
Matzo ball soup incorporates a veggie broth and matzo balls (or matzah balls). Matzah balls are traditional Jewish soup dumplings made from matzah meal, eggs, water, and fat (usually oil, margarine, or chicken fat). Matzo balls typically aren’t gluten-free and, if made with chicken fat, aren’t vegan either. But adapting the recipe for gluten-free and vegan eating is easy.
Swap out the matzo ball soup mix for a gluten-free variety, and use vegan eggs and broth to make the matzo ball soup 100% vegan too!
Matzo ball soup is the ultimate comfort food. When you make it gluten-free and vegan, you get all the warm coziness of a steaming bowl of soup plus the amazing health benefits all in one bowl.
