my favorite home made soup has to be leek and potato, it is so easy yet so tasty and filling.
depending how much you want to make the recipe is as follows,
4 leeks, 2 large potatoes 2 veggie cubes
peel the potatoes, and cut in cubes, wash and slice leeks. boil together until tender sprinkle the cubes while cooking. when cooked, blend with a hand blender, you should`nt need any thickening agents as the potatoes do that for you. i like home made herb dumplings

you take soup or broth and add whatever veggies you have or want. add them to the pot and use the bisquick dumpling recipe... i usually use bullion, a can of tomatoes, green beans, a can of beans, zucchini, onions peppers, and celery. then whatever else i have on hand. its the lazy way...but its delicious! its quick and easy which is what i need!

I don't have a recipe per se, but I recommend that if you are looking for a good vegetable broth you try Better Than Bouillon vegetable base. It is quite tasty! I usually go half vegetable half chicken when I make my chicken dumpling soup.

It doesn't *have* to be a cream soup. Thanks for the recommendations!

Here are two of the recipes that I've found online that I'm thinking about trying adaptations of:

Vegetable Soup with Carrot Dumplings from Taste of Home: www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Vegetabl
e-
Soup-with-Dumplings-2
Looks like a hearty veg soup with cheddar-carrot dumplings

Bean & Vegetable Soup with Corn Dumplings: www.edenfoods.com/recipes/view.php?r
ec
ipes_id=369
Looks a little spicier (I might add some cumin if I make it) with dumplings made with cornmeal and whole kernel corn

I'll post if either of them are successful1

I have never ate a vegetable soup with dumplings. It sounds interesting. I think I will give it a try . I would not use can soup as a starter because of its high sodium, so I would start with water and Mrs. Dash ..add veg. of choice ..after your veg. are cooked add milk and use corn starch to thicken , drop in your homemade dumplings or cut up a can of cheap buttermilk biscuits.

If you are looking for a recipe that includes a cream soup you might try www.campbellskitchen.com for creamy soup recipes.

I try not to us cream soups but I have in the past. You might try www.allrecipes.com too. I have found a lot of recipes that I use as a starting point and add or subtract from what I have or what I eat.

I hope this helps.

I have a bit of a recipe request. I'm looking for a good hearty, tasty recipe for vegetable soup with dumplings. My fiance and I love chicken and dumplings (even though my version is totally a Yankee verion), and I've seen several different vegetarian versions. Some have beans and some don't, and I can't really decide what sounds best.

Do any of you have a recipe for this combo that you've made and that you like? I'm especially interested in a cream broth, since I use a cream of celery soup as the base for mine, but I'd like any and all recommendations.

Thanks!
