  • chicken stock, made from 1 stock cube
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 small leek, sliced
  • 1/2 swede, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • olive oil,
  • fresh herbs to serve
  • 1 egg
  • 10 tbsp of plain flour
  • 100 ml water


    1. Gently fry the onion in olive oil untill translucent
    2. Add crushed garlic, followed by vegetables and cook for a five minutes
    3. Pour the chicken stock, bring soup to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked
    4. Meanwhile, mix all the ingredients for the dumplings. You will end up with sticky batter.
    5. Rinse a teaspoon under cold water. It will help the batter to come off the spoon more easily.Dip a teaspoon of batter into the pot with simmering soup and let it fell off the spoon. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
    6. When the dumplings float to the top of the soup, simmer another minute until ready. Check seasoning with salt and pepper and serve sprinkled with herbs.
