Vegetable stew with dumplings



The version I made for mycrazyhair was vegetarian, and could be easily made vegan by changing the dumplings - I grew up on margarine and soy milk dumplings.

The soup: I'm going from memory here, so I might have missed something.

onion
carrot
celery
squash, peeled and cubed
bell pepper
garlic
chickpeas

fake chicken

bay leaf
oregano
ground coridander seed
cumin
tumeric
vegetable bullion cubes

sautee the veggies until the onion, celery and pepper start to soften.
Cover with water, add the spices and bullion.
Simmer until the carrots and squash are cooked through.
Add the chickpeas and fake meat.




Then you make the dumplings!

blend or sift together:
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

using two knives, cut in:
3 tbsp butter or margarine

Stir in:
1/2 cup milk/soy milk

Stir just until flour is moistened.

Drop by large spoonfuls on simmering stew. Cover tightly and cook for 15 minutes. DO NOT LIFT COVER DURING COOKING - the dumplings have to rise, and if you lift the cover before they're done, they'll fall and you get hockey pucks instead of dumplings.

I'll have to remind Liz to post the recipe for the dessert she made on Sunday - sweet dumplings in caramel sauce.

I commented on it in zingerella's post, but will reproduce it here.

20 Minute Dessert

1.5 cups brown sugar
2 cups boiling water
2 tbsps butter

Stir together until dissolved, and simmer in a large pot while making the dumplings.

Dumplings
0.5 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter

1.5 cups flour
3 tsps baking powder
0.5 cups milk

Cream together butter, salt and sugar. Combine flour and soda. Add flour-soda alternately with milk to make a stiff batter. Drop tbsps into the boiling sauce. Cover and boil gently for 15 minutes. Serve in bowls (with homemade chocolate sauce if you're feeling decadent, or if nothing counts as dessert unless it includes chocolate.)

(I used soy milk in the ones I made on Sunday, and they worked just fine. I would suggest using a margarine like Earth Balance, that actually tastes like butter, if you're going vegan.)
