Homemade Gluten Free Matzo Ball Soup
You guys aren’t going to believe this, but it literally took me a year to perfect this matzo ball soup. Typically gluten free matzo balls are super dense, and they are hard as rocks. Not too appealing in my book. So, I tried to make my own several times. There were many mistakes along the way, but I finally got it! I’m happy that I figured out how to puff up the matzo balls when boiling them.
Even though I am pretty experienced cooking and baking gluten free, there are still things that I need to learn. Don’t stress if you have a few failed attempts of any recipe that is gluten free. Once you get the hang of it, you will feel confident in no time. Take a look at this guide: Gluten Free Pantry Essentials And Equipment Recommendations to help you.

How to make homemade gluten free matzo ball soup:
Add the matzo meal, dill, egg, seasonings, and oil to a bowl. Mix to blend.
Your matzo ball dough should be somewhat firm. Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and form into balls.
Bring a pot of water to boil and then drop the matzo balls into the boiling water. The matzo balls will drop to the bottom. Keep cooking and they will inflate and rise to the top. When the matzo balls are puffed up and floating, cook 5 more minutes then remove them and add them to your chicken soup.
What Is Rosh Hashanah?
Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish holiday that is celebrated during the fall. It’s the Jewish new year, and it’s time to celebrate the year past. Plus, it’s a great time to reflect on your past year too.
Who Invented Matzo Balls?
I have always wondered this but never thought to look it up. If you are curious too, here is a brief story: Matzo balls were invented in 1838 by a man named Isaac Singer. He was a clever Frenchman who created a matzo dough machine. This was fantastic because it made making the matzo balls a faster and easier process. I am not sure how this matzo dough machine would work for gluten free matzo dough…but it certainly would speed up the process!
Can I Make Matzo Balls The Night Before?
Yes, you can make the matzo ball soup the night before. You can prepare the soup as directed then place it into an airtight container. It will last 3-4 days in the fridge. Then reheat it on the stovetop with warm heat until it’s hot all the way through.
Can I Freeze Gluten Free Matzo Ball Soup?
Yes, you can freeze matzo ball soup. Let this matzo ball soup recipe cool down completely, then pour it into a freezer-safe container with a lid. Just fill the container about 2/3 full, so there is room when it freezes. The matzo ball soup will last around 3 months in the freezer.
Does matzo meal have gluten?
Unfortunately, the matzo meal does have gluten. You need to make sure to buy matzo meal that is specially labeled gluten free.
- 1 cup gluten free matzo meal
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons avocado oil (or another light oil)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill.
The matzo balls you form should be small as they will grow in size when boiling.
