Keto Matzo Ball Soup

Keto Matzo Ball Soup is a delicious low-carb version of the traditional Jewish dish that is perfect for anyone following a ketogenic or low-carb diet. This soup features tender matzo balls made with almond flour and psyllium husk, swimming in a rich and savory chicken broth. Here is a full recipe for Keto Matzo Ball Soup:


For the matzo balls:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For the soup:

  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh dill or parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and olive oil together until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, stirring until a dough forms. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  4. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let the soup simmer.
  6. While the soup is simmering, form the matzo balls. Wet your hands with water, then scoop about 1 tablespoon of dough and form it into a ball. Repeat until all the dough has been used.
  7. Drop the matzo balls into the soup and let them cook for about 15-20 minutes, until they are cooked through and fluffy.
  8. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot, garnished with fresh dill or parsley if desired.
