Start by caramelizing onions, garlic and celery with EVOO in a pot.
Add a small amount of water and scrape off the bottom yummy bits for flavour. Then add veggie stock :D
|you want about and inch and a half of room for your potatoes and dumplings.|
Throw in potatoes and other root veg you like, parsnip would be yummy! Add in oregano, bay leaves, rosemary, salt and pepper to taste, then you let it simmer away in a hot tub of goodness.
Make dumplings while it simmers. I altered my recipe there by using whole wheat flour instead of white. Put in any frozen veg you want to add to your soup right before you plop in your dumplings when potatoes are soft, and close the lid, letting cook for 15 min.
