Spinach Matzo Balls

Spinach Matzo Balls

Editor's note: This recipe is part of Susie Fishbein's Tricolor Matzo Ball soup.
Due to the high water content of fresh spinach, these matzo balls may be a little harder to roll than the other two flavors. If this occurs, add some extra matzo ball mix or matzo meal, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the batter can be rolled into balls. You want to use as little extra as possible so that the matzo balls remain light and fluffy.

Ingredients:

2 large eggs, plus 1 egg white2 tablespoons olive oil3 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves1 cup matzo ball mix (usually both bags out of a box).

Preparation:

In a medium bowl whisk the eggs and the oil.

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process the spinach until puréed. Squeeze the water out of the spinach.

Add the spinach purée into the egg mixture. Whisk to incorporate.

Sprinkle in 1 cup (2 bags) of the matzo ball mix. Stir in with a fork, mixing as little as possible. Don't overwork it. Chill in freezer for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a pot of water or chicken stock to a boil.

Wet your hands in a bowl of cold water. Using your hand, and manipulating as little as possible, scoop out a ping-pong-ball size of the mixture. Form into a ball with your fingertips, using no real pressure. Bring the water down to a simmer. Drop the balls into the water. Cover the pot and simmer for 20 minutes.
