Chicken Soup With Whole Wheat Dumplings

Yummy winter soup! I have never made this with parsnips but I included it in the ingredients because the original recipe lists it. YOu could use vegetable stock and leave the chicken out for a vegetarian version. From Food and Wine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, bring the chicken stock to a simmer.
  2. Add the chicken breasts and simmer over moderate heat until just cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer the chicken to a plate to cool slightly, then pull into shreds.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the flours with the Parmesan, milk and egg.
  5. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
  6. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch round tip.
  7. (I use a ziploc bag with a corner cut out).
  8. Add the carrot, parsnip, squash and turnip to the stock and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Cover partially and cook over moderate heat until the vegetables are just tender, about 10 minutes.
  10. Add the leek and cook until tender.
  11. Holding the pastry bag in 1 hand and a table knife in the other, cut 1-inch lengths of the dumpling dough into the simmering soup.
  12. When all of the dough has been added, stir gently and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.
  13. Add the shredded chicken, cook until heated through and serve.

We absolutely LOVE this soup! We made it with the parsnips and they are great. This was a while ago, but I forgot to post the rating. I'm just wondering how to make this in summer when turnips and parsnips aren't available. More carrots and add rutabaga??
