About this recipe: This is a kosher dish and can be consumed during Passover. Chicken meatballs and chicken stock are simmered together with white rice, to create this wonderfully hearty soup.
In the Ashkenazi tradition, rice is forbidden during Passover. While it is most common to avoid chametz (wheat, oats, rye, barley, spelt), some also avoid kitniot, including rice, millet, corn and some legumes.
Rice is not kosher for Passover for most American Jews, who are Ashkenazi (Eastern-Euopean/German descent). Only Sephardim (Spanish/Middle Eastern) Jews are permitted to eat rice on Passover. This recipe sounds good for after Pesach! - 12 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
