    BinkyKat's Note:

    This is a popular creamy chicken stock soup with diced potatoes, carrot, celery and onion with little dumplings dropped in after the veggies have just become tender. I actually submitted this recently to our work cafeteria's "Souper Bowl" competition and was picked to cook and serve it. good thing the head chef did the math - it turned out great at 12 gallons! My husband scored the recipe from a friend's wife who offered him a bowl when he was doing some handy-man work at their house. Lucky for me he never turns down a lunch offer - it yields me some tried and true recipes! I have added cubed/shredded cooked left-over chicken to make it even more hearty. You can also garnish with some crumbled cooked bacon bits. I feel that Yukon Gold potatoes work best. If you can eat just a cup, good for you - it'll last longer then. With us, big bowls are the only way!

      This soup is very popular where I live and I was in the mood to make some even though I misplaced my recipe for the knoephla part. Voila! Log onto Zaar and I had one at my finger tips in about 10 seconds. This is great and the measurements were all perfect. The only thing I did different was saute the onions in some butter before I made the base. GREAT recipe and I wish more people were familiar with "knoephla soup" -because there's a reason so many are crazy for it in this area, awesome stuff!

      My boyfriend loves German food and told me about this soup. I was skeptical, but made this and it was delicious. I didn't have any celery, but followed the directions otherwise (water for the dumplings, not milk). Can't wait for leftovers.
