Recipe

Sweet Potato and Cream Cheese Matzah Balls

*Note: Because of the moisture content of the sweet potatoes, expect these matzah balls to be softer than regular ones. Some of them might fall apart slightly, which actually makes the broth more flavorful!

Times

  • Prep Time : 35 min
  • Cook Time : 35 min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 10 min

Servings

30 matzah balls

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Sweet potatoes diced (approx. 1 large)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup Temp Tee Whipped Cream Cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup matzah cake meal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat matzah meal
  • 2 tablespoons potato starch
  • 1 tablespoon passover baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 3.5 quarts water (14 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 3 tablespoons vegetarian parve chicken flavored bouillon

Directions

Boil sweet potatoes until tender (about 10 minutes). Drain well and set aside to cool

Combine cake meal, matza meal, potato starch and baking powder in a medium bowl.

Once the sweet potatoes are well drained and cooled, mashed them using a potato masher. Add cream cheese, salt and pepper and whip with a hand mixer until well combined. Add egg and mix well

Add matza mixture and chives and mix using a spatula or wooden spoon. Let rest in the refrigerator for 15 minutes

In the meantime, bring water to a boil in a large (at least 4qt) soup pot. Add vegetable bouillon and dill.

Working with about a tablespoon of dough at a time, form matzah balls and carefully drop them into the boiling water. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes

Close your eyes for a second. Imagine a gigantic blender in front of you. Add a piece of Spain, a chunk of Lebanon, a splash of Israel and a hint of America. Turn it on. Blend until smooth and voila! What do you get? Identity crisis? Not quite… (ok, maybe a little bit). But mostly, you get us. Confused? Keep reading and you’ll understand.

We are two Sephardic sisters, Vicky and Ruth, returning to our roots to harvest our Mediterranean background. Inspired by the foods of our childhood, our cooking is bold and full of flavor.

Many of our recipes are infused with items you might not have considered previously: …. lemon (always fresh!), sumac, zaatar, pomegranate molasses, orange blossom and rose water, that will enhance your cooking, allow you to experience new flavors, and get a taste of the Mediterranean without ever leaving your kitchen.

Now, thanks to our new blog,http://mayihavethatrecipe.com/, you’ll gain a more expanded cooking repertoire and serve a wider palette of bold flavors bursting with flavor and color.

Our real specialty is performing recipe makeovers; we start with a recipe that appeals to us, and then we change it to make it kosher, vegetarian, or vegan. Then we change it to make it healthier. We continue developing the recipe until it is perfect and then post it for you to use. We will often transform and adapt a recipe utilizing innovative products such as chia seeds, almond milk, coconut oil, almond flour.
