Delicious rice dumplings give a homemade touch to this hearty soup that takes advantage of canned goods, frozen vegetables and dry soup mix. "My mom found this to be a quick, nourishing all-in-one-pot meal, and so do I," says Peggy Linton of Cobourg, Ontario.

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the water, tomatoes, vegetables, soup mix, oregano and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  2. For dumplings, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add rice and parsley; toss. In a small bowl, combine egg and milk. Stir into rice mixture just until moistened.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto simmering soup. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Yield: 6-8 servings (2 quarts).

"Easy , quick, and tasty. I didn't have the onion soup mix so I just sauted some diced onion. I added some garlic and instead of using water, I used vegetable broth."
