Anna and I are both sick. So I made a big pot of soup for dinner, and to complete the meal-in-a-bowl, I made dumplings to go with the soup. It was fabulous....comfort food always hits the spot, but even more so when you are feeling under the weather.
Dumplings for Soup
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup tapioca starch
2 teaspoons dried parsely
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon canola oil or olive oil
1/3 cup non-dairy, non-soy milk alternative
Sift together the rice flour through the sugar, make a well in the center and set aside. Whisk together the canola oil and milk, then pour into the dry ingredients. Stir until smooth. Add up to 1 tablespoon of water if the mixture seems too dry. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls into a gently simmering broth-y soup. Cover the soup pot and simmer 15 minutes. Uncover the soup pot and turn off the heat. Serve hot. Makes about 6 dumplings.
