Roasted Vegetable Soup


This hearty and heartwarming Roasted Vegetable Soup is just wonderful, and it's an ideal soup for vegetarians too. The soup has a wonderful natural sweet flavor from the caramelize red peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, and garlic. For a complete meal, you may serve it warm with your favorite bread or with some Garlic Cheese Pull-Apart Pizza Bread on the side. The recipe for the Pizza Bread will be available on my next post.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
