Simple Vegetarian Dumplings 

I have always loved dumplings  but I only ever seem to make them this time of year to go with stews and soups, so I thought I would share with you my recipe for them. I have tried them with both plain and self raising flour, both taste just as nice but I have used self raising in the ones pictured. You can also add herbs to them, I find thyme goes quite well in them for stews!

Makes 14-16 small dumplings


225g self raising flour 

125g butter, cubed

Cold water 

Salt and pepper 

1. Add all ingredients apart from the water into a bowl. Rub the butter into the flour until it is all mixed together. Gradually add the water with a tablespoon until it forms a dough. If it too wet, add more flour.

2. On a lightly floured side, split the dough into small balls of equal size.

To cook:

You can either add to your stew or soup whilst it is cooking for 40-50 minutes.

Alternatively, place into a saucepan (with lid) of water or vegetable stock for 30 minutes.
