We loved this- great flavor, and really "warming". I liked it even better the next day as as the cornmeal from the dumplings thickens up the broth. This is just the kind of meal I like on a blustery day. The second time I made it I didn't have the kale, and I added some finely chopped fresh rosemary to the dumplings.We liked it that way as well. This is still really delicious just as posted. A definite keeper.
Wonderful flavor! Even my super picky roommate liked it. He ate three bowls! I did add potatoes, because I'm Irish. Other than that I followed your recipe. Thank you for a great keeper! I can't wait to make it again once we get through the leftovers :)
