An easy Dumpling Soup with pigeon peas, cannellini beans, carrots, celery and potatoes. This is the perfect winter soup to chase away a frosty nose. Flavor the soup with simple spices.  Making the dumplings is super easy for anyone to make.

The weather dial says that its 44°F outside!

Its Florida, so, that temperature is a little unusual.

For me though, its the PERFECT level of cool because I can make soup….

….and its no ordinary soup either!

Tips for making this soup

  • Use the “batter” method to make the dumplings. This will give the soup a light, but, hearty texture. It’s the most essential part of this soup. See my method below.
  • If you don’t have canned pigeon peas or canned beans, you can always use dry beans. Soak them overnight and cook them in the instant pot. Use the “Beans” option.
  • Out of fresh veggies? No worries. Use frozen veggies because they will cook perfectly in this soup. They turn out tender and soft.
  • You can sub brown rice with orzo. They are the perfect size for this soup. Try my other orzo soup too.

Most dumpling soups call for the dumplings to be round and ball shaped. I found a better way around making those huge dumpling balls. I use the drizzle batter method to make the “dumplings”.

How to make “batter” dumplings

  • Bring the whole soup to a boil first. This is after you have added all the ingredients, except for the batter.
  • While the soup is boiling, prepare the batter by mixing flour, coconut milk, water, parsley and adobo powder
  • Make sure the soup is boiling before you drop the batter into it.

The trick to adding the batter to the soup is simple.

  • Fill up a round spoon with the batter and drizzle it in the soup.
  • Keep spoon in one spot until all the batter from the spoon has been poured into the soup
  • Repeat the drizzling until all the batter is in the soup.

That’s it! Now, wasn’t that the easiest thing you have ever done?

  1. I think my favorite foodie childhood memory would be my Grandma Phyllis making mac ‘n cheese. She made amazing comfort food with next to nothing because money was always scarce. Soup was always on the menu and I know she would have loved this dumpling soup, looks delicious!
