    1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a rolling boil. Place 8 eggs in the boiling water; let the eggs boil for one minute, then remove the pan from the heat. Let the eggs sit for 15 minutes before removing them from the pan. Let them cool, remove the shells, the white portion of the eggs (save or discard the white) and chop the yolks.

    3. In a large saucepan over high heat, bring chicken stock to the boil. Add rice and chicken balls, cover and lower heat to medium low; simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice and chicken are cooked.
    4. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with hard-boiled egg; serve.

    Rice for Passover

    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)
