This worked out very well on a busy weekday. I used diced tomatoes, as that is what I had on hand and served a side salad along with it. :)
It was late, i was hungry and wanted something comforting but easy. This hit the spot beautifully. They only change I made was to add some fresh basil. Next time i will get fancier but tonight i just wanted pure ease and comfort and yumminess. It fit all 3.
So, so very good! I added a bayleaf with the tomatoes and some other spices - oregano, red pepper and garlic powder - otherwise followed the directions to the "t" and it was fabulous! PS: - added shredded chicken breast to the sauce the second time around cuz the DH is soooo NOT a vegetarian - scrumptious! We fried the breast first - then added to the sauce.
This is way way better than I thought it would be. It's a wonderful vegetarian entree. I added garlic powder and basil to the tomatoes and I used canned diced tomatoes. I used Jiffy baking mix and omitted the egg from the dumplings. It was scrumptious! The uncovered-then-covered method for cooking the dumplings worked beautifully and resulted in wonderful fluffy dumplings...not a sinker in the bunch. Don't skip the garnish of more butter and a bit of black pepper - it really makes the dish taste great. I will definately make this one again.
I gave this 4 stars. My future hubby talks about tomatoes and dumplings all the time. He really enjoyed tomatoes and dumpkings. He said when he was a kid his mom used to make them for him. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)
Wow! We all loved this dish. I used 1/2 tsp of allspice and 2 cups of cooked chicken, and I could have added more of each. It's simple and delicious. I followed the directions exactly and it came out beautifully.
Very easy to make. Instead of dropping the dough by teaspoon, I rolled out the dumplings (I love the flat chewy dumplings). I also used brown sugar and skipped the egg. My nieces love this recipe. My grandmother made these for me when I was pregnant with my daughter. They remind me of hers. Very definitely a comfort food.
