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.

Chicken and Chickpea Stew

My favourite thing about Autumn is comfort food. Having the house warm and full of the smell of stew, makes the dark evenings a little less worse! I usually make it during the day and let it simmer on a really low heat so it is ready to serve come dinner time.

Serves 4  Costs 93p a serving
