'The Kitchn' recently published a recipe for making vegetarian matzah ball soup. Matzah balls are hearty Jewish dumplings traditionally served in chicken soup. This recipe offers a slightly different take on traditional matzah ball soup, by using vegetarian-friendly ingredients.

The recipe involves making tasty dumplings out of matzo meal, eggs, melted butter, baking soda and seltzer. For those who are truly ambitious, the matzo meal can be made from scratch by pulsing unsalted crackers in a food processor. The dumplings are the cooked in a tasty soup made from vegetable stock and any combination of veggies you might have on hand. The end result is a rich and flavorful dish that is perfect for celebrating Hanukkah.
