Bulgarian Tomato Dumpling Soup created by Artandkitchen

Make sure to prepare in a pot with a large diameter to allow dumplings to rise to the top. This recipe is posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. I haven't tried it but it is from Sundays at Moosewood.

    One of my all-time favorite recipes!! We are in the middle of a torrential chilly downpour, and I've spent two hours looking for my Sundays at Moosewood Cookbook (did I lend it to someone???). So happy to find the recipe here. I know the soup ingredients by heart, but I sometimes cut corners and use store-bought gnocchi instead of making the dumplings, so I really needed to find it. Yay!!!

    Very healthy and tasty soup!! My partner and I really enjoyed the dumplings, which I've never had with tomato soup before! This is quite a pleasant departure from my tried and true basil tomato soup (flavored with bay, celery seed and a bit of sugar), but well worth a try! Thanks for sharing!
