Gluten-Free Matzo & Matzo Ball Recipe

11 Comments 31 March 2009

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. 

Thanks, Rachel!

UPDATE: Gluten-Free NYC has some scoop on local (as in Brooklyn) gluten-free matzo ball mix, etc.

    The oat matzah from england is delicious. But the price of $40 is obscene!!

    I agree. I have a feeling that most purchases will be just for annual special occasions and religious observances.

    If you want to stay away from oats Leibers matzo ball mix is fantastic and oat free. It is one of the few mixes that I don’t doctor up. Make it exactly the way the box directions indicate. At Passsover many gluten free products become available. One I’ve seen is gluten free ice-cream sandwhiches. Not fantastic but decent. Any kosher food store will have Leibers.

    As an expert in the space, I wanted to make you aware of a release going out tomorrow. I am available if you’d like to speak, and of course we’d be happy to send a box in a week when they’re ready.

    Here is the copy:


    Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2010 — For the first time, people living with celiac disease and those choosing a gluten-free diet can buy Kosher Matzo from of Beverly Hills. Gluten Free food offerings are increasingly popular. “As a Jewish man whose wife has a gluten allergy, I wanted to make the Mitzvah of Matzo available to those unable to eat wheat,” said Ben Katz, who bakes the favorite unleavened bread. Whether it’s spelled Matzo, Matzah, Matzoh or any other way, the wheat variety isn’t an option for millions living with celiac disease.

    Orders placed at by March 18 will arrive in time for Passover 2010. For group orders, bulk discounts are available at the website as well. The matzoh will be hidden this year, but not from those suffering from celiac.

    i need to know where i can obtain gluten free matzoh for the yom tovim i make matzoh balls then as well

      Yehuda brand made in Israel gluten free matzo is available in many supermarkets for under $6. It is light tasting, not heavy, and actually quite good. However, there is a disclaimer on the package that it is NOT for “a replacement for matzo at the Seder”. That said, it is acceptable for all but the most observant in which case the Shmura matzo from England is the only alternative. Making your own very good matzo from almond meal is an alternative and very easy. It is made from tapioca starch, potato starch and potato flour, vinegar, egg yolks, honey and salt. It can be ground for matzo meal.

    Yehuda brand gf matzo has been available in some ShopRite stores in CT since mid-Feb. It was $3.50 a box in Feb,. up to $5.50 a box now. It is light and very tasty, similar to a plain saltine but better. Makes great matzo brie and also grinds down successfully to make matzo meal. GF matzo meal is also available from Manishewitz as well as their egg noodles which are very good. I’ve made kugel from the noodles and an excellent lasagna from the matzo. You really have to search hard to find products in stores as not all carry anything!
