Dumplings are a fantastic addition to soups and stews for a little more heartiness. You can add any fresh herbs you like.
You can simmer the dumplings in vegetable stock to make this a vegetarian dish. Also, use margarine instead of butter if you want to make it vegan.
Used different ingredients. fANTASTIC!Used equal parts butter and olive oil. They were the best dumplings ever! - 18 Jul 2008
Excellent dumplings! When I pinched off the dough I rolled the dough into balls then dropped them in! These were fabulous in my beef stew and so incredibly easy to make! Thank you so much for the recipe I will definately use it over and over again! - 18 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Loved these!! The recipe is great, although I found that I needed more water in order to get the dough to 'hold' together. I also added some pepper and my family loved them. - 18 Jul 2008
