    Ms*Bindy's Note:

    Make sure to prepare in a pot with a large diameter to allow dumplings to rise to the top. This recipe is posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. I haven't tried it but it is from Sundays at Moosewood.

      I never prepared dumpling soup and from now on will do it again. I loved the addition of couscous and dill in these dumplings!
      This was very tasty and perfect in such cold days!
      A big thank for this great recipe.

      Very healthy and tasty soup!! My partner and I really enjoyed the dumplings, which I've never had with tomato soup before! This is quite a pleasant departure from my tried and true basil tomato soup (flavored with bay, celery seed and a bit of sugar), but well worth a try! Thanks for sharing!

      This soup worked out great. I loved using couscous in the dumplings, which gave them a nice texture. The dill in the dumplings was fantastic as well. The consistancy of the soup was great, but even though I only added the 2 tsp chili powder we found it too spicy. Next time I would decrease the chili powder to 1 tsp or so. Otherwise, we really enjoyed this. Thanks Ms*Bindy!
