Dumplings for Soup

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 2 mins

Very easy to make. Adds a very tasty and filling component to any soup. Extra soup keeps well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients together, add enough flour to make it the consistency of thick ketchup.
  2. To make dumplings, dip a spoon into soup that is softly boiling for a second.
  3. Then scoop a small amount of dumpling and dunk it in the soup.
  4. The dumpling will immediately fall off the spoon and plump up.
  5. Repeat until dumpling mix is gone.
  6. Cook in a stock, and throw in some vegetables.
  7. Suggested: chicken stock with celery, lots of carrots, some onion, and a bit of rosemary.

A very easy, but nice way to make dumblings, that just might encourage the new cook to put away the can opener for awhile.

12/14/08: I added a little baking powder to the recipe to make them fluffy. These were delicious! Thank you Kat. 12/20/08: Much better when I followed the recipe. Thank you again!

Excellent dumplings I have made several times now. Think I am addicted! When I didn't have a packet of soup stock,I used 2 or 3 teaspoons beef (or chicken) soup base mix and reduced the salt. I have also cooked the dumplings separately in broth or water. Then I place some dumplings in each soup bowl, then ladel hot soup on top. Yummy.Thanks for a 'keeper' Kat.
