Saffron Matzoh Ball Soup for Passover

Passover Potluck? Count me in Tori! It is my absolute pleasure and such an honor to be invited to contribute a Guest Post for my favorite Jewish holiday, Pesach, on my favorite Jewish cooking blog, The Shiksa in the Kitchen. I’ll bring the Matzoh Ball Soup. See you at Sundown!

Choosing a Passover dish to share with The Shiksa was easy. After rolling over a thousand matzoh balls between my palms over the last decade, it is this fluffy beloved dumpling of Passover that I must share at the Potluck.

But mine is not an ordinary matzoh ball, this one is infused with saffron. Lots of saffron. So beyond their beautiful rich color, these matzoh balls taste exotic, mysterious. Perfect for the retelling of our ancient story…

My Saffron Matzoh Ball recipe is now posted at The Shiksa’s Passover Potluck here,
plus a peek at Our Beautiful Passover Seder Table too.

Try The Shiksa’s fabulous made-from-scratch “Sinker” Matzo Balls and “Floater” Matzo Balls,
now you’ll know the difference!

    These look delicious and unique! I’ve never made matzoh balls before, and was thinking of taking on the challenge this Passover. I may have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for sharing! Please stop by my blog when you have a chance: detroittokyo.wordpress.com.

    I hate to admit I’ve never tried Matzoh Ball Soup but this makes me want to try it out. It looks gorgeous and I bet the saffron is lovely in it. Tori was the one who introduced me to saffron, I’d never used it before. It’s a wonderful breathe of fresh air. So glad to meet you through the potluck. Look forward to getting to know you better.

    Absolutely gorgeous! What flavor they must have!

  5. I have some good memory with Matzoh balls. My mom was an exchange student in high school and stayed with a Jewish family in Seattle. Her host mom made great Matzoh balls back then. The past 40+ years our families kept in touch and visited each other and I had tried her famous Matzoh balls one time. The grandma passed away last year a few days after our visit but I still remember the delicious meal she prepared. I didn’t get a chance to learn how to make it but I’m going to check out your recipe. Looks beautiful and delicious!

  6. Oh what a fabulous idea. Taking the matzo ball to another level. This is akin to the canederli one finds in Northeastern Italy. I will be trying this with my Italian saffron.

    Awesome. I just bought a box of matzos the other day to make an attempt at matzo ball soup.
    Love the addition of saffron!

  8. What a pretty color! I always just put a ton of dill in mine because it both looks and tastes great. Speaking of which, it’s getting to be matzo ball rolling time around here!

    Wow – gorgeous dish! I love saffron, though I haven’t had matzoh balls yet. Great guest post :)

  10. Being a Gentile – I’ve always thought of Matzoh Balls as tasteless – doughy – lumps. (Maybe I just don’t know any good Jewish cooks) I’d even try these! Saffron dumplings in chicken soup – how can you not love saffron chicken n dumplings!

  11. The color is amazing in that photo! Off to check out the guest post.
