Dumplings

My mom used to make stew with dumplings like this when I was a kid. Basically, these are just like mini biscuits, but cooking them on top of the stew makes them tender and moist. My mom also used to serve them with pumpkin soup. Use them as you see fit.


INGREDIENTS
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup plain soy yogurt
- 1/3 cup plain soy milk
- 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

METHOD
1. Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together wet ingredient in a separate bowl, then add to dry ingredients, gently mixing until just moistened.
2. Drop spoonfuls of batter on the top of a simmering stew or soup. Cover, and let simmer for about 10-12 mins, until dumplings are cooked through.

I love putting dumplings in soup!!! These look great with the soy yogurt

It's funny how my notion of dumplings (Asian "potstickers") is so different from yours. But I'm definitely craving these right about now - and the recipe is so easy! Thanks for this :)

There's nothing more comforting than a good stew! The dumplings are a nice touch.

What a coincidence - I was thinking about making dumplings last night. We make ours with vegetable suet, ut I'll have to give your recipe a try at some point.

Oh, I have stew planned for Friday night, I am putting these dumplings on top!! I made a potpie with a biscuit crust not too long ago, and I love how moist and tender the buiscuits are when they are steamed. YUM!! Such great comfort food.

Here in the South, we call 'em
"dumplins." And they are one of my favorite foods!!!! I'll have to try 'em in pumpkin soup.

I love your blog. You have the best ideas out of every vegan blog I've seen (and there are some good ones out there). Thanks!

Oh wow, these look delicious. An ideal comfort food in the middle of winter. I need to go home and cook now! Thanks!

Ah dumplings! So good for such cold wet weather as we are having today. I recently read about a French/Belgian dumpling called (I think) "mique" - a giant, bread-loaf-sized dumpling, boiled in a vat and served with roast.

I love how gourmet all your recipes look!Especially the tofu/sieten dishes, really resteraunt style!

Annie said...

those sound great!! I really want to try them.
Is there any way I can substitute the soy yogurt? we don't get vegan yogurt in Mexico.

This really brings back memories! My mom used to make these kind of dumplings on stew all the time. I was never a big fan of the stew, but I sure loved those dumplings!! I'm definitely going to try these this week.

Vegandad, your recipes never disappoint! I just made these dumplings for the second time, and once again, they're perfect; they're light and airy, and totally comforting. And they're so easy to make!
I've only been reading your blog for a few weeks, but now, I make it a point to stop by every day. Every recipe I've tried has turned out just wonderfully. Thank you so much!

Hey thanks! These turned out great, just like granny used to make and they were quick and easy. Cheers!

Made the dumplings with the Irish stew last week. The first night it was fantastic. Leftovers were a bit dry but I am gluten free and gluten free baked things always dry out fast. I need to try halving some of the recipes since it's just me.
