Ingredients

  • 3 cup 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

  • 3 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 3.5 quart water (14 cups)

  • 3 tablespoon vegetarian parve chicken flavored bouillon

Preparation

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
