since the number of jewish vegetarian readers i have is approximately ≤ 0, i don't really know why i am posting this link. but - i made this vegetarian matzo ball soup over the weekend. this is my first time attempting mazto ball soup (normally the task falls to my catholic dad - go figure - i don't think my jewish mom ever made it). anyway, it turned out ok - it's hard to judge because i am used to the way my dad's tastes, and this is my first time ever eating a tofu-based matzo ball. i actually like matzo balls when they're a little hard, and these were a little too fluffy/soft. but there may have been a critical error on my part (mine didn't do the float/drop thing when i lifted the lid, but after reading the comments on the recipe site, i should've lowered the temperature after putting the lid on the pot). the broth was fantastic. and i also made yeast rolls, but they were gross. too yeasty and no flavor. but it's fun to see dough rise and i'd love to attempt other breads in the future.
