Club soda is the secret ingredient to make these knaidlach (matzo balls) light and fluffy! This recipe can be doubled easily, but be sure to use a large pot and don't peek during cooking!
cup matzo meal
1. Combine matzo meal, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a bowl. Add egg, egg whites, club soda, oil and dill; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Wet your hands and shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Drop matzo balls into boiling water, cover tightly and simmer for 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and transfer to chicken soup or vegetable broth.
Yield: 12 matzo balls. These may be frozen in soup, or on a cookie sheet and then transferred to a plastic freezer bag. Reheat them right in the soup!
