This recipe comes from The Taste of Home "light & Tasty" 2003 cookbook. I love it, and so does my family. Last time I made it I only got one bowl! The best part is that's it's healthy and hearty. Enjoy!

- Drop batter in six mounds onto simmering stew.

Pretty good! My kids liked it too -- except for the celery. I would have liked it a bit thicker though -- would use a bit less water next time.
We enjoyed! While I used cooked turkey breast it made up beautifully and think it would work great with left over turkey pieces too ... keeping the recipe handy for the holidays should we see to any left over turkey. Also made this using chicken breasts with great results. Other then using my own homemade dumplings I made as posted.The combination for ingredients comes together to make for one delicious stew. Thank you Busymom.
I made this for supper last night and I really enjoyed it. My fiance didn't like it quite as much, but I thought that it was very tasty and relatively easy. Next time I'll make more dumplings for it I think though. Thanks for the recipe!
