While your stock is cooking, it’s time to prep the rest of your veggies.

You will need the following:

Add everything to a plate

When your vegetable stock is done cooking it’s time to start sauteing everything on your prep plate.

Start by adding a little olive oil to your pot.

Then add your onions and garlic, season with some salt and continue to saute and continue to add each of your ingredients. Saute for approx 10 mins. Now it’s time to add your veggie stock. You’ll want to add a total of 6 cups. Use a ladle (while avoiding the veggies in your stock) to add the liquid to your measuring cup, then pour it into your pot so you can keep track of how much your adding.

Let your soup continue to cook on low for about an hour.

Check for the seasoning. Does it need more salt? If so add some. Also add some fresh ground pepper. Salt will make your soup come alive! Remember your using homemade veggie stock so you’ll need to add salt. When your potatoes are soft it’s time to add your dumplings.

Grab a bowl and add these ingredients:

  • 1 Cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk (or more if too dry)

First mix the 1/4 cup milk and the beaten egg together. Next add 1 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and lastly a dash of salt.

Now mix everything together. If your dough is dry add more milk. Your dough should be sticky. If it’s not your dumplings will be harder. I guess it all depends on what you like. Per my husband…the dough should be sticky.

Use a spoon to break off a chunk and then form it into a ball, and add it to your soup.

Then put the lid back on, and continue to cook for another 15- 20 mins. They should puff up a bit.
