8 Matzah Ball Soup Recipes Perfect for Passover

Matzah ball soup for every palate and diet including vegan, gluten-free and Cuban-inspired!

I already know what you are thinking: How many ways are there to make matzah ball soup? Why mess with perfection? Yes yes, I know. I like my matzah ball soup pretty classic too. But sometimes I like to add fresh dill to the matzah balls. Or stuff them with shredded veggies a la Susie Fishbein. Or even turn them three different colors (see tri-color matzah balls below).

And even if you don’t want to mess with the flavor of the matzah balls themselves, there are some people who may need to eat or prepare for special diets, like gluten-free or vegan. So here are eight different matzah ball soups for every taste, palate and diet.
