7 cups water
Combine all the ingredients for the stock in a soup pot or large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Let stand until needed, then strain before using. Heat the oil in a large soup pot. Add the chopped leeks and sauté over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until the leeks just begin to go limp. Add the stock, turnips, celery, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and mushrooms and continue to simmer until the vegetables are tender, another 15 to 20 minutes. Season to taste with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Remove from the heat.
Allow the soup to stand for several hours, or cool and refrigerate overnight. Before serving, heat through as needed. Stir in the parsley and dill. If the vegetables seem crowded, adjust the consistency with more water, then adjust the seasonings and lemon juice. Top each serving with a sprinkling of matzo farfel if desired.
Makes 8 to 10 servings
