Chicken Soup with Walnut Balls

Photo by:

As a special Passover treat the Jews of Georgia prepare these delicious soup dumplings from walnuts, eggs, and matzo meal. Serve a few in the soup and save some for later. They are delicious cold, accompanied by a piquant sauce. The oregano in this recipe should really be fresh.

Yield: Serves 6

INGREDIENTS

Walnut balls

  • 1½ cups finely ground walnuts
  • ¼ cup minced onions
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup matzo meal
  • 1½ tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 large egg white, whisked until frothy

Soup

  • 7 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup chopped mixed dill, cilantro and parsley

Directions

1. In a large bowl, combine all the walnut ball ingredients.

2. Bring 2 quarts of salted water to a boil. Have a bowl of cold water by you. Dipping your hands in the water, shape the walnut mixture into 2-inch balls. Drop them into the boiling water, and cook until cooked through, 10 minutes. Remove the balls with a slotted spoon and keep warm.

3. Heat the chicken stock. Ladle into soup bowls, add three walnut balls to each bowl and add garnish with fresh herbs.
