Matzoh Balls in Brodo

  • ACTIVE: 20 MIN

These light, bite-size matzoh balls have a delicious Italian spin—they’re made with ricotta and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

  1. 1 large egg
  2. 2 tablespoons fresh ricotta cheese
  3. 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for garnish
  4. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  6. 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  7. 1/4 cup matzoh meal
  8. 6 cups vegetable stock or low-sodium broth
  9. 2 garlic cloves, lightly crushed
  10. 1 small carrot, thinly sliced
  11. Tarragon leaves, for garnish
  1. In a bowl, whisk the egg. Whisk in both cheeses, the oil, salt and pepper. Stir in the matzoh meal. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes, then gently form into 1-teaspoon-size balls.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the stock to a boil with the garlic. Add the matzoh balls, cover and simmer over moderate heat for 30 minutes. Add the carrot, cover and simmer until the carrot is tender and the matzoh balls are puffed and light, about 10 minutes longer. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with tarragon and grated cheese.
