Several of you have asked me about this and now, thanks to Rachel Lerner, I have an answer for you. Gluten-free matzo is now readily available on Amazon. The matzo is called Gluten-free Shemura Oat Matzo and it is made by a rabbi in London.
Matzo Ball Recipe
2 Tbls. vegetable oil
2 large eggs slightly beaten
1/2 cup matzo meal (see instructions below)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbls. water
Blend oil, eggs matzo meal and salt. Add water and mix well. Cover and put in the refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight.
Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Make balls, using wet hands and drop into boiling water. Cover and cook for 20 min. Will make 6 -8 matzo balls, depending on how large. I usually double or even triple the recipe. (Use larger pot and more water if making larger recipe.)
Make Your Own Matzo Meal
Use your food processor and just process the gluten-free matzo until finely ground.
Don't you love one step directions?
Mmmm…all of this matzo ball talk is bringing back memories of my favorite soup at Rose's in Portland, Oregon. That was back before I was gluten-free, so I don't think I've eaten matzo ball soup since.
UPDATE: Gluten-Free NYC has some scoop on local (as in Brooklyn) gluten-free matzo ball mix, etc.
