  • 1 to 2 cups turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic grow your own
  • 2 cups of chicken broth or your own stock preferably organic
  • 2 cups chopped veggies of your choice frozen work well
  • Dumplings the original recipe was half this, but I love dumplings & always doubled it, so I rewrote it this way
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil your choice, lard, melted organic butter, olive or coconut are my choices, vegetable oil is chock full of GMO’s and not used in our kitchen


  • Put vegetables and meat in a Dutch oven. Cover with broth or stock, bring to a simmer.
  • Combine dumpling ingredients and stir together until it forms a sticky dough. When vegetables are cooked half way, drop dumplings by the spoonful on top of your soup-dough will be sticky. Lightly simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on, this will cook the top of the dumpling. Then, simmer for 10 minutes with the lid off.
