A classic matzo ball soup often has few ingredients beyond a delicious broth and a deliciously large and tender matzo ball. But we wanted to turn this staple of Passover into a full and satisfying meal.

To do this, we added a careful selection of vegetables -- enough to flavor the broth and provide substance, yet not compete with the matzo balls -- and a small amount of chicken. The result was a rich soup that keeps its identity, but also fills you up.
