Low-Calorie Dumplings, Ready To Hug You From The Inside

Nourishing and warming - dumplings are the food of childhood memories and long autumn/winter nights - the ultimate winter warmer.

Using Lo-Dough crumbs as a flour replacement, these dumplings will surprise and delight you with their lighter-than-light texture, supreme flavour and satisfying post-meal feeling. The calories and carbs are almost negligible! 

Savoury dumplings made from small balls of dough are part of traditional British and Irish cuisine. They are dropped into a bubbling pot of stew, or into a casserole. They sit, partly submerged in the stew and expand as they are half-boiled, half-steamed for twenty minutes or so, the bottom half soaking up the gravy. The cooked dumplings are airy on the inside and moist on the outside. Our dumplings are flavoured with cheese and mixed woody herbs (thyme and rosemary, as well as chopped parsley) to give a savoury and moreish flavour to accompany a beef stew. You can mix and match flavour accordingly - add tarragon if serving with chicken stew or dill and fennel for a fish stew. 

Obviously, you need it thick enough to roll into balls, but to keep them light, make sure your dough is nice and wet - not too thick of a batter. As the water evaporates, what you are left with is a soft and pleasing texture, rather than the leaden cannonballs we remember from school dinners!
