Beatrice’s Vegetable ‘Stoo’ with Dumplings (vegan)

This blog is now hosted at http://veganchickie.com

I got this recipe from a Joyous Mama that I know online. Her recipe is vegetarian, but in honour of Vegan Month I’ve made a few adjustments to make it vegan. It is the perfect dish for this week as the weather is starting to cool down and those dumplings were oh so yum! Such deliciousness! I’m already looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow!

Vegetable ‘Stoo’ with Dumplings

STEW:
2-3 onions celery sticks (celery is our new onion replacement!)
1 clove garlic – crushed
2-3 carrots – diced
4-5 potatoes – diced
1 small sweet potato – diced

Method: Saute onions and garlic. Brown the diced vegetables a little. Add barley and lentils and cover with water, simmer gently until root vegetables are just tender. (make sure you check the water levels as the barley and lentils will absorb some of it).

DUMPLINGS:
200g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch nutmeg
1 tsp ground parmesan savoury yeast flakes
50g butter nuttelex
enough cold water to form a soft dough.

Method: combine dry ingredients, work in butter with your hands and then add water, kneeding to make a dough. Divide into 12 and roll into balls, before adding the dumplings to the stew, stir in frozen peas and fresh basil, add your dumplings and cover pan, leaving dumplings to steam for 10-15 minutes. Garnish with some fresh basil! Enjoy!
