Whip up these fluffy vegan dumplings and a savory veggie-ful soup for them to bathe them in! It's the perfect bowl to cozy up with on a chilly day.
Make the dough first by stirring together flour, baking powder, sea salt and herbs. Then create a well in the centre of the mixture and pour oil and warm water in. Fold together with a spatula until well combined and sticky. It will be wet and sticky, but it should form a mound or ball. Let it rest in the bowl covered with a tea towel while you prepare the soup.
Heat a stock pot over medium heat and sauté onion, carrot, and celery in vegetable oil for 4 to 5 minutes. Then add minced garlic, thyme, sage, dill, and ground black pepper and stir together for another 2 minutes.
Stir in potatoes for 2 minutes. Add stock and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes until fork tender and soft for about 8 to 10 minutes.
Once boiling, you'll dollop small spoonfuls of dough into the soup. They will float to the surface and puff up. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.
In the last 2 minutes of the dumplings cooking, add peas, kale, and parsley. You may need to add more salt if you've used a low-sodium vegetable stock but I find the "chicken" flavored bouillon to be plenty salty. Serve immediately!
