  • Add the seasonings, parmesan rind (if using), diced tomatoes and vegetable broth.
  • Bring the soup to a simmer.
  • While waiting for the soup to simmer, spoon the matzo ball mixture out in 1 teaspoon scoops and tightly press into balls. When the soup simmers, turn off the saute function. Gently drop the matzo balls into the soup.
  • Place the lid on the instant pot and set to manual high pressure for 7 minutes. When the cooking time is done, allow a five minute natural pressure release then quick release any remaining pressure.
  • Add the kale to the bowl of the instant pot and return the lid. Let sit for a few minutes to allow the kale to wilt and then gently stir through.
  • Serve immediately, topped with grated parmesan cheese if desired.


Matzo ball mix is usually sold in 2 packs, only one pack is needed.
If you prefer to have fewer, larger matzo balls, form into balls of up to 1” in diameter and continue as directed.
This will store well in the refrigerator for several days.
