Hot and Sour Matzo Ball Soup


  • Swanson Chinese hot and sour broth 
  • more broth (h&s or vegetable, optional)
  • a can or two of mushrooms
  • a scallion or two, chopped like you do
  • matzo balls, prepared as directed on the back of a can of Manischewitz matzo meal
Note: you can use one or two boxes/cans of broth, depending on your desired broth/ball ratio. The amount of scallions & mushrooms would then tend to follow the broth.


  1. Mix up the matzo ball ingredients and put them in the refrigerator.
  2. Cut up the scallion(s) and put them, along with the mushrooms, into the broth.
  3. Bring the broth and vegetables to a boil.
  4. Add the matzo balls to the boily broth.
  5. Lower the heat and simmer per the Manischewitz directions, about 30 minutes or so.
