Recipe Notes

  • Freezer Suggestion: The soup freezes really well, so make extra and store it in your freezer until the next time you'd like it. I recommend removing the matzo balls before you freeze leftovers and then making fresh matzo balls each time you serve the soup.
  • Baby Food Tip: Set some of the broth aside when you’re finished and use it to add vitamins and flavor to your favorite green vegetable purees for your baby. They will love it and you will feel great watching them eat their healthy greens.
