Inevitably, the weather will change here in New York. I'm not a fan of the cold and I despise snow. Since I can't change that, my only options are to move or to find a way to make it easier to deal with. I found my way...
It's a nasty, cold, rainy day here on Long Island, New York. That calls for a snuggly sweatshirt and comfort food. What's the ultimate comfort food? Soup, in my opinion,
This soup came out absolutely delicious and sure hit the spot on this rainy night. My parents loved it too. My husband hasn't tasted it yet, but I'm sure he'll enjoy it.
The electricity flickered while I was in the process of cooking. I wasn't sure I'd get to finish the soup, but luckily, we didn't lose power. Phew.
So, let's get cooking. Wash and chop your celery, carrots, and garlic cloves. Coat the bottom of a large pot with olive oil and heat on medium high. Add in the celery and carrots, salt to taste and stir often. As the vegetables soften, add your garlic. Allow the garlic to cook, but down let it brown. Add the box of vegetable broth and two cups of water. Salt to taste. Stir well and cover.
Peel, wash and chop potatoes into bite sized pieces. Add to the simmering soup. Cover but stir often. As the soup is simmering, prepare your dumpling batter.
Combine tapioca flour, brown rice flour and baking soda in a bowl. Measure milk and add oil into the milk. Stir well. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well (see video above)
Check the potatoes and carrots in your soup. If they are almost to desired tenderness, it's time to add your batter. Raise heat under the soup and bring to a high simmer/almost boil. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the soup (see video) Stir soup, cover and lower heat. Allow dumplings to cook well. In approximately 10 - 15 minutes your soup will be done. Serve and enjoy!
