Chicken Dumpling Soup Recipe

My mother used to make dumpling soups and Russian dumpling kasha for us very often.

As I was making dumplings the other day, I decided to keep some in a freezer to make soup later. The soup turned out impressive and simple at the same time. It was almost like having chicken noodle soup, but with really delicious fresh dumplings.

I know soups can get old, so for that reason I wanted to share this recipe with you. It will give you a new option.

Note: For this recipe you will need to make 1/2 batch of those dumplings . No toppings, just plain old dumplings ;)
