Pumpkin soup with pumpkin dumplings


Pumpkin Soup with pumpkin dumplings is a must-try for all vegetable soup lovers. The soup requires only three ingredients, i.e. pumpkin meat, spices and water; however, for a creamy flavour a cream can be added. Moreover, “dumplings” made from just two ingredients are a great add-on, as well. The dumplings can also be used in beef/chicken soup.

The recipe is gluten free and vegan. Enjoy it with one more person for lunch.
