Vegetable Dumpling Soup

“As a busy working mother, I love this recipe. I can use common pantry items to put a hearty, healthful dinner on the table for my family to enjoy. It takes only melon or fruit salad to round out this meal!” Graciela Sandvigen - Rochester, NY

    I loved this recipe, we do not eat meat, so switched the chicken broth to vegetable broth, did not use corn meal. Used the recipe for dumplings on the Bisquick box. Entire family liked it, added corn top the veges for the kids.

    This soup didn't have enough flavor or juice. I was very dry. I you make it I would increase the amount of chicken broth.
