Homey Vegetable Stew with Dumplings : page 250

This is a simple, creamy vegetable stew that's very easy to make in a short amount of time. I found it quite peppery and that's with only adding about half the called for amount of pepper. The great thing about these types of dishes is that you can throw in a variety of vegetables for variation in addition to the potatoes, carrots, onions and celery. I used cauliflower and think it would also be tasty with the addition of greens, sweet potato, squash or parsnips.

I found the dumplings a little bland but they could easily be spiced up with the addition of some herbs as the author suggests.

Blended smooth, gingery and full of healthy ingredients, eating this soup had me feeling very virtuous. I had a bunch of kale to use up and this was the perfect solution. Without any fresh parsley in the house, I had to use dried so I added an extra handful of other fresh greens. This soup would probably kick a cold in the butt!
