This recipe is an idea from my “Classic Scandinavian Cooking” by Nika Hazelton cookbook that I absolutely adore because it reverses how we think about soup. Although happily changing somewhat in recent yrs, most of our DH’s and our kids still think of soup as something meat-based, creamed, filled with pasta and not really a meal. While that’s a time-honored tradition, the trend now is to healthier and veggie-based soups. This idea helps you to convince your “bread, meat and potatoes” DH and your “I don’t like veggies” kids that eating healthier can be tasty and fun. Not a problem and so easy ... make meat dumplings for a variety of veggie-based soups. Everyone is happier and healthier!
