These fluffy little light-as-a-cloud herb scented dumplings are simply heavenly served with my Wintry Beef Vegetable Stew With Fluffy Herb Dumplings #112055, or chicken stew! Use any herb you wish-- try chives, thyme, sage, etc.-- French thyme or Herbes De Napa are my favorites. GREAT comfort food! I hope you enjoy these heavenly dumplings as much as we do.
