*This recipe makes a whole lotta soup! I cut it down to measurements for hubby and I once. Now I just use my judgement on amounts of everything. Just keep tasting the broth until it's to your liking.
Grandma Rosie's Knoephla Soup
24 cups water
16 Tbsp Chicken base (or use bouillon cubes)
5 pounds potatoes - peeled & cubed
1 stalk celery - diced
1-2 cups carrots - diced
1 onion - chopped
3 tsp salt
3 tsp pepper
3 tsp parsley flakes
1-2 pints half and half or whipping cream
Add vegetables, salt, pepper, and parsley to water and chicken base. Bring to a boil and cook until veggies are tender. Add dumplings, bring back to a boil. Simmer until dumplings are cooked through.
Add half and half or whipping cream. Stir, eat, and enjoy!
Dumplings: I use 5 eggs, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2-1 tsp baking powder, and 2-4 cups flour (depending on egg size) Mix everything together until dough is stiff. Drop into boiling soup.
You can also use the pre-made, frozen dumplings found in the store
