IntroductionThis is an easily customized and hearty vegetarian stew with thanks the Lindsay Nixon, the Happy Herbivore. I wanted to make her Chickpeas with Dumplings but had no chickpeas. You could start with any favorite canned soup or create it from scratch. This is an easily customized and hearty vegetarian stew with thanks the Lindsay Nixon, the Happy Herbivore.

Amy's Organic Low Sodium Lentil Vegetable Soup, 1 can
Organic Diced Tomatoes, 1 can
Butler Soy Curls, 1-1/2 cups
Flour, Unbleached White Whole Wheat, 1/2 cup
Organic All-Purpose White Flour, 1/2 cup
Vegetable Broth, 1 cup
Molasses, black-strap, 1/2 tbsp
Salt - Iodized Sea Salt, 1 tsp
1 tsp Olive Oil
Celery, 1/2 cup, diced
Onions, 1/2 cup, chopped
Garlic, 1 clove, minced
Garam Masala (Indian spice mixture), 1 tsp
Butler's Soy Curls are wonderful, chicken-looking pieces made from soybeans with no added ingredients and a very mild taste. They are high in protein and take on the flavors they're cooked with.
I used Garam Masala because it is so aromatic and rich in flavor, but use what you like. Curry powder, smoked paprika, or any other favorite will make this your own!
2. Heat olive oil in heavy pot and saute onion, celery and garlic until onion is translucent. Add water as needed so it doesn't burn.
3. Add soup and diced tomato to sauteed vegetables, and mix well, then add vegetable broth, Garam Masala, a little hot sauce if desired, and molasses. Let simmer.
4. Mix flour with salt and add 6 tablespoons cold water. Knead a few times and flatten and cut into 20 gnocchi sized dumplings. Drop into soup and cover, keep heat low. They will puff up somewhat. Stir periodically, and serve when dumplings are done, about 10 or 15 minutes.
