Reasons to love this Dumpling Soup
Friends I tell you this dumpling soup recipe is amazing and you will see why:
It is really budget friendly and made with a bunch of easy ingredients that you might have in your cupboard at home.
I test it back and fourth to make a wonderful result with little effort, but the result is complex, delicious and amazing. I would say mission accomplished.
Have a look at my step by step pictures and you know making Dumpling Soup is really easy.
The homemade dumplings makes great biscuits just say it.
For preparing the broccoli, I decided to roast small florets because that adds a lot of flavor and makes a great texture.
What you need for this Dumpling Soup Recipe
We make the dumplings from scratch and I use flour, baking powder (note: if you use self rising flour, leave out baking powder), oat milk, and olive oil. This is pretty solid and great foundation for dumplings.
Carrots, onions and garlic are essential flavor ingredients that also add a lot of texture.
Vegetable broth: this is the liquid that we cook our veggies and dumplings in.
I roast my broccoli while the soup is cooking. Believe it or not, it makes all the difference. It adds lots of flavor and a wonderful crunchy texture.
To make things a bit spicy, I use a small amount of chili flakes to really let all the ingredients and flavors shine. Of course you can happily leave it out if you want to.
Seasonings: dried chives, dill and parsley. Chives and dill both go into the soup while cooking, and I add sprinkle some fresh parsley on top.
How to make Dumpling Soup
In a medium sized bowl combine, flour, baking powder, milk, 4 Tbs olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix with a spatula until you get a sticky dough. Form into a ball and cover with a towel on top.
Heat 2 Tbs of olive oil in a large pot. Add onions, garlic and carrots and cook them for around 3 minutes. Add in dill, chives and chili flakes. Next mix in the vegetable broth and bring to a cook. Reduce heat and let the base of the Dumpling Soup simmer.
While the soup is simmering, preheat oven to 410F.
In a small bowl mix broccoli florets with 1 Tbs olive oil and add a pinch salt and pepper. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a 9×13 inch baking dish and distribute broccoli evenly. Bake them for around 15 minutes.
With the help of two tablespoons take 1 inch bits of the dough and drop it into the soup. Repeat until all of the dough is used and cook dumplings properly for around 10 minutes.
Finally add in broccoli and sprinkle the Dumpling Soup with fresh parsley on top.
