Vegan Matzo Balls


  • 1 ½ cups matzo meal
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, plus to taste
  • ½ cup VeganEgg powder
  • 1 ½ cups ice-cold water
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil

Soup Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 carrots, cut into thin rounds
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 8 cups vegan “no chicken” style broth
  • 1/3 cup fresh dill, roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, plus to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon finely ground black pepper, plus to taste


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine matzo meal, kosher salt, baking powder, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, dill, and black pepper. Whisk.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, add VeganEgg powder and ice-cold water. Whisk until smooth and slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Add oil to VeganEgg mixture and gently mix to combine.
  3. Pour VeganEgg mixture into dry mixture and gently combine until uniform. Do not over mix.
  4. Cover and place in refrigerator for about 1 hour to firm up.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  6. After matzo ball mixture has set, scoop about 2 tablespoons matzo ball mixture and roll into balls. Add to boiling water and cover.
  7. Continue to boil until all balls float to top, then lower water to a simmer and cook for 40 minutes. Keep the lid on, and do not stir at any time. Leave the matzo balls be!
  8. Meanwhile, place vegan butter in separate stock pot and heat over medium heat.  Add onion, garlic, carrots and celery and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add broth, fresh dill, sea salt and pepper. Cook until warmed through.
  9. Remove matzo balls from water with a slotted spoon and serve warm in soup! Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.
