Whole Wheat Spinach Matzo Balls


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 2 eggs and 2 egg whites
  • 11/4 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 10-oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons seltzer
  • 1 cup whole wheat matzo meal


Process spinach in a food processor (you can skip this, but it won’t look as nice) then add in eggs, egg whites, salt, pepper, oil and seltzer and pulse a few more times to combine.  Pour into a bowl and mix in matzo meal.  Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight, the longer it sits the fluffier it will be.

Bring large pot of generously salted water to boil. Using wet hands shape matzo mixture into 16 balls; drop into boiling water. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer matzo balls to the soup.

    Instructions say to add the matzo meal. This is not listed in the ingredients. How much matzo meal should be added?
