Ingredients For Vegetable Dumpling:


– For the Soup:

  – 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, for sautéing and enriching the broth.

  – 1 medium onion, finely chopped, setting the foundation with its sweet, aromatic depth.

  – 2 cloves of garlic, minced, for a subtle, pungent warmth.

  – 2 medium carrots, diced, infusing the soup with a hint of sweetness and vibrant color.

  – 2 celery ribs, diced, for a mild, earthy crunch.

  – 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, to thicken the broth into a silky texture.

  – 4 cups vegetable broth, providing a light yet flavorful base.

  – 2 cups milk, the secret to the soup's creamy consistency.

  – 1 teaspoon dried thyme, adding a layer of woodsy, floral notes.

  – 1 bay leaf, for its subtle, complex aroma.

  – 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, for convenience and a burst of color and nutrition.

  – Salt and pepper, to taste, for the perfect seasoning balance.


– For the Dumplings:

  – 1 cup all-purpose flour, for tender, fluffy dumplings.

  – 2 teaspoons baking powder, ensuring the dumplings are light and rise beautifully.

  – 1/2 teaspoon salt, to enhance the dough's flavor.

  – 1/2 cup milk, to bind the dough with moisture.

  – 2 tablespoons melted butter, adding a hint of richness to each dumpling.




  1. Craft the Soup Base:

– Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until translucent and fragrant, setting the stage for a deeply flavorful broth.

– Add the carrots and celery, cooking until slightly softened, drawing out their natural sugars and flavors.

– Stir in the flour, coating the vegetables evenly, and cook for a minute to remove the raw flour taste. This roux will thicken the soup, creating a creamy texture.

– Gradually whisk in the vegetable broth and milk, preventing lumps. Add the thyme and bay leaf, bringing the mixture to a gentle simmer. The broth will thicken and develop a rich flavor profile.


  1. Prepare the Dumplings:

– In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk and melted butter until a sticky dough forms. This simple mixture will transform into fluffy pillows of comfort.

– Drop tablespoon-sized dollops of the dough into the simmering soup. Cover and let them steam for about 15 minutes, until they're cooked through and tender.


  1. Final Touches:

– Stir in the frozen mixed vegetables, and cook until they're heated through and vibrant, adding a colorful contrast and a variety of textures to the soup.

– Season with salt and pepper to taste, adjusting the flavors to your liking.




  1. Serve with Sophistication:

– Discard the bay leaf and ladle the soup into bowls, making sure each serving is adorned with a generous helping of dumplings and vegetables.

– Serve this creamy concoction hot, allowing the steam and aromas to entice your senses before the first spoonful.
