Veggies and Dumplings Soup
Welcome to the first Secret Recipe Club reveal day of 2013! It felt soooo strange not posting something in December but with the craziness of the holidays I’m sort of glad there was a break in order to insure I could focus on my assigned blog. This month I was sent over to Daily Dish Recipes hosted by the amazing Nicole. In reading about Nicole I also found out that her daughter has her own food blog, as well as an adorable hedgehog, so kitchen skills seem to run in the family! Since I had more than the usual amount of time to find a recipe I decided to take my time and really explore all that Nicole had to offer. For the longest time I was leaning towards her candy section, because who doesn’t want to make homemade lollipops??? However after reflecting on the extreme amount of sugar I have ingested over the holidays I decided to refocus on all of her savory options. This led me to her two Chicken and Dumpling posts, and some hard core inspiration to make a vegetarian version. I took a little bit from both posts in order to come up with my recipe, and it was a HUGE hit! The from-scratch dumplings were delicious, the perfect meal for a rather rainy winter day.
This is one of those stews that could be done with so many different vegetables, I have every intention of trying it with some roasted winter vegetables! There is nothing like a delicious dumpling soaked in a simple stew to make the winter a little warmer. Make sure to check out all of the amazing SRC recipes this month 🙂
