"Matzo" Balls, Potato (Gluten-Free) (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 4

2 medium russet potatoes, peeled
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. potato starch
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground white pepper
1 tbsp. fresh dill, minced

Cut potatoes into large chunks and boil in water until soft. Drain and allow to cool.

Once cool, mash with oil, eggs, salt, pepper and dill. Stir in potato starch until thoroughly combined, and refrigerate the mixture for 1 hour.

Bring soup or a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Use your hands to gently form rough ball shapes from 1 tbsp. of batter at a time, and submerge dumplings in the soup or water. If you prefer, you may use a soup spoon or ice cream scoop to move free-form spoonfuls of batter into the pot.

Boil for approximately 5 to 6 minutes. The dumplings will float up to the surface quickly, but will need several additional minutes to cook all the way through.

Serve in soup, or as a side dish with butter or margarine and fried onions.

Poster's Notes:
I made this dumpling recipe last year for a guest who cannot eat wheat. They were delicious, so I'm making enough for everyone this year.
