Ingredients

Directions

  • FOR THE SOUP:

    Soak the barley while softening the onion, leek and celery in the oil. Stir in the garlic then add the remaining ingredients, except the seasoning. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat. Skim off any foam. Simmer, half covered, for about 1 hour or until the vegetables are soft. Season to taste.
  • FOR THE DUMPLINGS:

    Mix the dumpling ingredients. While the soup is cooking, roll the dumpling mixture into golf-ball-sized balls and simmer, covered, in salted boiling water for 20 to 30 minutes or until swollen and cooked through. Gently drain and serve with the soup, reheating in the soup.
  • Variations: If you prefer a meaty soup, add some marrow bones and a chunk of beef shin. But make it the night before, as it will take double the time to cook.
