Snowjam: Vegetable Soup and Dumplings

Atlanta is now infamous for its lack of coping skills in winter weather.  I was lucky to have only spent 3 hours in the snow and logistics induced traffic jam of 2014.  Even though I was lucky compared to others I knew who spent 7 and 13 hours in it, it was still a hideous way to spend an afternoon.  When I got back, I wanted comfort food.  Big time.  There was no matza meal, so I looked for dumpling recipes on the internet and found this semolina dumpling recipe at Smitten Kitchen.

The only thing I changed in the recipe was to add some toasted and crushed caraway seeds, which were yummy.  We took what was on hand to make a clear vegetable soup.

It had kale, cauliflower, carrots, onions, garlic and a better than bouillon (no chicken base) broth.  The cooked dumplings were added to the finished soup.

With bread and cheese, it was just the thing for recovering from the trauma of snow traffic.
