You might remember, way back in Lune, that I bought myself some soup as part of my 30 day present extravaganza.
In the past I’ve bought the Matzo Ball mix but never with the soup. I like to make my soup myself. Soup from a mix didn’t seem all that appetizing.
Well, obviously I am
dumb Dumb with a capital D because this mix was AMAZING. No. Seriously. Read on.
This is what it looked like:
I got the mix at Save on Foods in their World Foods section. (Don’t we live in the world too? ) Right next to the East Coast stuff ( Aren’t the Maritimes a part of this country?)
You mix up the matzo meal with two eggs, some oil and water according to these directions:
Give it a chill and roll them into balls.
You cook the balls in the soup mix until they puff up like this:
The whole process couldn’t have been easier. I enjoyed them on a wet and dreary day and they were just the thing. They are economical too. This one package which cost me 6 dollaroonies or so, fed me for 3 meals.
How did they taste? Divine!
That soup mix was SO good. Perfectly seasoned without being salty. So clear and clean tasting with a very nice celery flavour. I didn’t end up using all the soup and I thought nothing of adding the remainder to my precious master stock. The matzo balls were weighty and satisfying without being too dense. They were creamy and flavourful. I do believe, this is my favourite soup of all time. It’s well worth the try.
What’s your favourite soup? Is it from a can or mix, or homemade?
