A hot vegetarian side dish recipe that is from Recipes4us.co.uk website. Also included in the Zaar World Tour 2005 Swap, Britain. ****NOTE****Unfortunately these dumplings did not turn out well for us or the reviewer. The dumplings smell wonderful while cooking in boiling water but have no taste when served. I tried adding extra flour to make them have more texture and different seasonings to help the taste and it did not help. I do apologize and please feel free to make changes to this recipes as you see fit.
- 2 ounces self raising flour, 50g
- salt, to taste (optional)
- 1⁄2 ounce butter, 15g
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- In a medium mixing bowl sift together the flour and salt. Cut in the butter, in small pieces, with a fork. Beat the egg well and stir in chopped parsley.
- In a large pot or dutch oven, bring salted water to a boil. When water is at a full boil drop mixture by teaspoonfuls into water. Place lid on pot and gently boil for 10 minutes, turning halfway through. Lift dumplings out with a slotted spoon and let drain. These can be served in a clear soup, beef stew, or with boiled beef. If cooking dumplings in same pot as stew, add 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
This didn't turn out as I was expecting-it was too "egg-y" for us; the exterior was almost slimy looking and it didn't have much flavor. I cooked it in boiling water to serve as a side. We couldn't eat it. Maybe would be better in soup? Sorry.
