Contest-Winning Vegetable Soup with Dumplings Recipe

Contest-Winning Vegetable Soup with Dumplings Recipe

Not only is this hearty soup my family's favorite meatless recipe, but it's a complete meal-in-one. It's loaded with vegetables, and the fluffy carrot dumplings are a great change of pace at dinnertime. —Karen Mau of Jacksboro, Tennessee
