Vegetable dumpling soup for the vegan and/or vegetarian in your life. It’s surprisingly full of delicious flavor and absolutely screams comfort food. This soup is cheap, easy and delightfully filling. If my 14-year-old can make this then so can you! That simple.
Prepare the dumpling dough and set aside to rest.
Prep the vegetables. I always add the celery leaves, it adds so much flavor! Don’t throw them away…ever.
Saute the onions for about 4 minutes.
Add the carrots and celery saute for about 5 minutes. Toss in the spices, saute for 2 minutes to release their flavors. Add stock and boil until carrots are almost done, about 10 minutes.
Add the potatoes , cover and boil for about 10 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through. Start dropping the dumpling dough in by the teaspoon. Remove from heat and add fresh parsley. Serve and devour!
Hearty, healthy, full of vegetables and flavor!
