Stuffing Dumpling Soup Recipe

Stuffing Dumpling Soup Recipe

I've always loved turkey, dumplings and stuffing, so I combined them and added a punch of Creole flavor. My family loves it, even my little ones. It's got some kick, but a dollop of sour cream mellow that out. —Relina Shirley, Reno, Nevada
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped fresh carrots
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups cooked stuffing
  • 2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1-1/2 cups cut fresh green beans

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, saute mushrooms and onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add the broth, carrots and Creole seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 5-8 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk eggs and flour until smooth. Crumble stuffing over mixture; mix well. If necessary, add water, 1 teaspoon a time, until mixture holds its shape.
  • 3. Add the turkey and green beans to soup; return to a boil. Drop stuffing mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto simmering soup. Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Yield: 5 servings.
Editor's Note: The following spices may be substituted for 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning: 1/4 teaspoon each salt, garlic powder and paprika; and a pinch each of dried thyme, ground cumin and cayenne pepper.
