Today's recipe comes to us in collaboration with Elana Amsterdam. Elana is the author of the New York Times Best Selling cookbook Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. She gave up grains over a decade ago and has been tempting foodies everywhere with her incredibly simple, yet flavorful recipes for dynamic, vibrantly healthy food.
We got to sit down with Elana and know you will love her (if you don’t already!), but for now, read on and enjoy Elana’s Matzo Ball Soup recipe, which falls into our 80:20 category (because of the eggs). Enjoy!
This gluten-free Matzo Ball Soup is a healthy twist on a Passover classic. My secret to making this dish gluten-free is to use almond flour in place of matzo meal. Yes, it’s a grain-free Paleo Matzo Ball Soup, as a good as any your Bubby ever made. Matzo Ball Soup is perfect for the change of seasons, which are also perfect times for a cleanse.
