I always make one simple, healthy, soul-calming soup when things get tough, and it always makes us feel better. 

At home, Mom's Lemony Matzo Ball Soup is famous.

My husband loves matzo ball soup, so he'll play up any cough to get me to make it. 

Luckily, it's a simple recipe I can make when sick. using the boxed matzo ball soup mix and ingredients I always have.

In my opinion, matzo ball soup is best straight from the box.

 We have less work because they've perfected the recipe.

This soup should be flexible and simple. No homemade stock? Buy store-bought or use the boxed soup mix. 

The flavor depends on fresh ginger, not dried. Keep a few peeled ginger knobs in the freezer to always have some.
