Fresh parsnips, carrots, broccoli and mushrooms are nice additions to this simple matzo ball soup.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 1; cover and refrigerate overnight.
2   large eggs
1   large egg white
1/2 teaspoon  salt
3/4 cup  matzo meal
1 tablespoon   canola oil
3 tablespoons   cold water
8 cups  Homemade chicken Broth (see recipe link above)
2   parsnips, peeled and chopped
1   large carrot, peeled and chopped
1   onion, chopped
1 cup  broccoli florets
1 cup  sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons   chopped fresh dill or parsley
Other necessary recipes:
Homemade Chicken Broth
Whisk together whole eggs, egg white and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk in matzo meal, oil and cold water. Cover and chill the mixture at least 1 hour or overnight.

Bring broth to a boil in a large pot. Add parsnips, carrot and onion, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes.

Gently roll the chilled matzo dough by level teaspoonfuls into balls, dropping them into the simmering broth as you work. Cook the matzo balls, covered, for 15 minutes. Do not lift the lid: the broth must simmer rapidly to allow the matzo balls to expand properly. Uncover the pot, add broccoli and mushrooms and simmer until the broccoli is just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Ladle into bowls, sprinkle with dill (or parsley) and serve.
