Hi everyone,

Here's what I made for dinner tonight its a green lentil stew with broccoli cauliflower carrots peas and potatoes chopped in their skins, I added low salt bouillon yeast extract chilli sauce with just enough water to cover in my slow cooker.

The dumplings are really easy to make; 165g self raising gluten free flour 2 eggs a little salt enough water to mix into a dough with a teaspoon of fresh parsley and then rolled into 6 dumplings and put on top of the veg and left to cook merrily away.

Its stew and dumpling weather here thats for sure so keep warm and enjoy the rest of your day now folks.

There I was, thinking my KnΓΆdel era was over, (and as a German, going gluten-free it hit me hard) and along comes this recipe! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜›πŸ€€πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ

Thank you, Jerry! (I also love lentils, but I’m having difficulties getting the green lentils I’m used to from Germany)

Thanks CBDB going gluten free hit me hard I imagine it does to all of us. And I’ve just googled a krodel is a boiled dumpling. πŸ‘

I buy green lentils in my whole food shop and buy tinned green and black ones sometimes. I’ve seen your bread so know you will make really nice dumplings. 😊

I haven't had them in a very long time. I hope the ingredients are here so I can do them this weekend at the latest. :-)

You're welcome! :-)

I love lentils! So rich in iron. Just the meal on a cold, rainy evening. I notice you didn’t use vegetable suet in your dumplings and wondered if it contains gluten? I use veg suet in dumplings and cobblers but had never considered if it’s gluten free or not😊

Hi Alb2 I've always made gluten free dumplings like this so have never checked out vegetable suet.

I love lentils as well and include them in my diet a lot, 😊

I’ve had a check and the vegetable suet is gluten freeπŸ‘This time of year, I make lots of soups and vegetable casseroles with dumplings and you’ve inspired me to make one today!

That would seem to depend on the brand. I was curious what vegetable suet was, and the first one I looked at, Atora chosen at random, contained wheat flour.

Yes, the one I use, Suma, uses rice flour so is quite gluten free. I’d just not noticed because I don’t have probs with gluten but thought it might be useful to know for those who do😊

Those dumplings look lovely Jerry, you would not know they were gluten free by looking at them. What a lovely wintery meal πŸ˜‹

Thank you Sue it definitely is stew and dumpling weather, every cloud has a silver lining.πŸ‘

A hearty stew, as the fall continues to grace us with its presence, is a comforting warmth. Yours looks lovely and filled with folate from the lentils.
