GLUTEN_FREE MAIN SOUP

Chickpea Dumpling Soup

This comforting soup is a simple and easy meal to make ahead of time. Packed with hearty carrots, celery, and pillowy dumplings. Pair this meal with fresh bread or crackers for a complete meal.

I absolutely love making soup in the winter. Not only is this soup super simple to whip up but is also really healthy. I usually find myself making a double batch so I can save it for leftovers.

TIPS WHEN MAKING THIS SOUP

  • I recommend prepping all ingredients and having them ready before actually making the soup. This includes also includes the dumpling batter.
  • Make sure to chop your veggies into bite sized pieces. They will shrink slightly, but not a lot. 
  • Be careful not to overcook your onion and carrots. These veggies will be cooked on medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until onion is translucent. 
  • When cooking your dumpling you will slowly add one tablespoon of dumpling batter to the boiling soup. You will notice that some of the batter might not stay together, but that it’s fine it will only thicken the soup.
  • I used one 32 fluid ounce carton of vegetable broth plus ½ cup of filtered water. If you do not have 32 fluid ounce carton of broth you can use two 14 ounce cans of broth plus 1 cup of filtered water. 

This dumpling batter is super easy to whip up. I used two main ingredients, all-purpose flour and water. I also like to season it with salt, oregano, and pepper. Feel free to add spice it up even more by adding more dried herbs!

All you do to make this batter is combine ingredients in a bowl and whisk.  I’m not going to lie, me and my husband tend to fight over who gets the most dumplings! So if you are like us and can’t resist the dumplings, I recommend doubling the dumpling batch! 

We love to pair this cozy Chickpea Dumpling Soup with bread and butter. Leftovers last in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
