How to Make Simple Dumplings


Yep you read that right!  I was foraging through my cupboards yesterday, trying to use up my leftovers and asking the Lord to help me come up with a simple meal for dinner.  Today is grocery shopping day and I was O.U.T. of everything!!  Soup..I can make soup! 

My family LOVES to have homemade bread with dinner but honestly I didn’t really feel like making it.   Oh ya…as much as I love to cook..I don’t always want to! LOL   Then I remembered…I haven’t made Dumplings in like forever and it takes, let’s see, all of about 2 minutes to make.  Then of course I had to take a quick picture because I know you want to know how to make simple Dumplings..right?!

Now drop about 2-3 Tbsp. mounds of the dough onto Soup, Stew or vegetables!  Don’t be perfectionistic here.  Just blop it in and forget about it!  Do mine look perfect?  Nope! 

Cook for 10 minutes with the lid off then 10 minutes with the lid on.

    I love simple dumplings! I must admit, I have never used coconut oil in cooking. I use it for beauty things, but not in cooking. I must give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Sharri Lyne,
    I make mine with bisquick and do it the same way, and they are awesome. I like light and fluffy dumplings cause some are just so dense and doughy, and I don’t care for them myself. Yours looks awesome, and nothing like chicken and
    dumplings…………

    Nice to meet you here in blogland………I ask the Lord what can I make too especailly when I have no appetite and can’t think of anything or when I am out of everything like you!! ……….and I always get an idea that just all of a sudden pops
    into my head………….He is so good!!

    Have a lovely weekend,
    Nellie
