Simple Garlic Dumplings for soupSubmitted by: CCKELLY3
IntroductionI add these to my Garden Abundance Tomato soup.
These should be a little sticky. Remember, they'll double their size, or more, when they cook. I add these to my Garden Abundance Tomato soup.
These should be a little sticky. Remember, they'll double their size, or more, when they cook.
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup 2 % milk
1 Tbs salted butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp garlic, minced very fine, or paste
1 tsp garlic powder
Fresh ground pepper to taste
optional --for a more decadent treat, add 1-2 tsp of Parmesan cheese.
1. Make sure the flour is free of lumps, if necessary, pass it through a fine meshed strainer. Stir in the baking powder.
2. Melt the butter and add to milk. It's best to use at least 2 % milk, or whole milk if you don't mind the little fat. It helps makes the dumplings lighter and fluffier.
3. Slowly add flour to the milk and butter, stirring to incorporate it evenly, until you a consistency like a wet dough.
4. Add egg, minced garlic and garlic powder and pepper. The dough should be slightly sticky.
5. Cover and chill for 10 minutes.
6. Drop by small teaspoonfuls or with a fork into simmering soup. Make sure it doesn't boil or the dumplings will break apart. Give them plenty of room to expand.
7. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until dumplings swell 2 - 3 times their size and are light and fully cooked through to the center.
note: if using a small pot, you may need to make the dumplings in batches so they have enough room to cook.
