Nothing says Passover like a good bowl of matzo ball soup. The Jewish holiday begins this Saturday morning and celebrates the Biblical story of the Exodus, or freeing of Hebrew slaves from Egypt. Matzo represents the unleavened bread the Jews ate while fleeing Egypt. My Catholic family will celebrate with this dish to acknowledge our common roots in biblical history. In my recipe, I use Canada Goose instead of the traditional chicken. I also substitute Chickpea flour for Matzo meal because it is a common substitute in the Persian version called Gondi. But also because North Dakota is the fourth largest producer of chickpeas in the U.S.
