Dumplings

If you have always wondered how to make dumplings so they are light and lovely every time, this recipe is for you.

If you are making a stew, either beef, chicken or vegetable, this is one of the nicest side dish recipes you can serve.

The delightful part is that it cooks right with the stew.

These little gems really do need to be cooked in an environment that provides a steam but doesn’t boil them. That is why they are usually cooked in a stew. Just spoon them on top of the stew and let them cook, partly with the lid off, then covered for an equal amount of time.

This is a really easy side dish recipe. The dumplings should come out light and fluffy.

Dumplings are a great change from potatoes or rice.
