    large flat-leaf parsley leaves or small sprigs

Directions
1.
Heat oil in a large sauce pot over medium-low heat. Add onions and, stirring occasionally, sweat until translucent and completely tender, approximately 15-20 minutes. Do not allow to brown. Add carrots and celery and continue to cook until softened, approximately 15-20 minutes.
2.
While the vegetables sweat, create a bouquet garni. Bundle the bay leaf and thyme with the celery rib and wrap several times with cooking twine to hold them together. Stick the pointed end of the cloves into the celery rib.
3.
Add chicken stock and bouquet garni to pot, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot and gently simmer until flavorful, approximately 45 minutes. Remove the bouquet garni.
4.
While the soup simmers, prepare matzoh ball batter to package instructions, creating 24 balls 1" in diameter. Cook the matzoh balls as directed.
5.
To serve, place 3 matzoh balls in a soup bowl and ladle 10 ounce soup and vegetables over the balls. Garnish with parsley leaf.

Instead of sprinkling his soup with the customary bits of chopped fresh dill, Adam Perry Lang makes a vibrant horseradish and dill pistou (typically a condiment of fresh basil, garlic, and olive oil). A swirl of the flavorful pistou brightens up the soup enormously.
