Dumplings in Coop

Or rather, two sorts of ready mix : bread or potato. Saw them today in the pasta section, and the packaging is in English! Has anyone tried these? I've never made dumplings before but I can remember eating them in Austria in stock/soup some 25 years ago. Something new to try, if not very summery...

Re: Dumplings in Coop

Are dumplings "Knödel"?

If you want I can give you a really easy great recipe for home made Knödel

Re: Dumplings in Coop

Sorry for the delay I had to find my hand writen recepy book, which decided to disappear...

So here goes the Tirol Knödel recepy:

Ingredients:
2 eggs
300g Toast bread (the square thing that lasts ages)
1 small onion
150g spinach (you can use frozen ones) (or 100g of bacon)

10 Cheese cubes (cut in 1 cm)
1 little parsley bunch (minced into tiny little pieces)
Half a cup of milk
Salt
Pepper
Flour
Cut the toast bread into small cubes and leave it to dry during one night, on an open bowl.

On the following day, cut the onion into small pieces and let it get a golden colour on olive oil (low temperature).

Add the onion, 2 tea spoons of salt, pepper and the parsley to the bread and mix the whole thing. Add half a cup of milk and the spinach, and smash it. Add 2 spoons of flour and 2 eggs and smash the mix till you have a homogeneous dough (it’s kinda sticky. If too dry add milk, if too liquid, just add a bit of flour).

Wash your hands. Get a bowl of warm water.

Wet your hands on the warm water and shape pieces of dough into balls about 5 cm diameter. Place a cube of cheese in the middle, and try to get the ball to keep a decent shape. The warm water will help to get the dough not to stick to your hands.

Place the 10-12 balls inside cooking salted water for 15-20 min and serve with tons of parmesan on top



A variant to it is instead of using 150g of spinach, using 100g of bacon (the one cut into tiny pieces).

It takes maybe a little more time than the regular pizza in the oven, but it’s a lot of fun to prepare, and it is really tasty


Let me know if you try it
