Vegetarian Tofu Matzo Ball Soup is a famous Jewish soup made with matzo dumplings. They are prepared especially during Easter or what they call as Passover dinner. Matzo dumplings are made from a mixture of matzo meal, eggs, oil and water. This is a recipe using Tofu Matzo balls. The matzo mixture is prepared ahead and needs to be refrigerated overnight. This helps the ingredients to get firm enough to hold and shape the matzo balls.
