Herbed Cornmeal Dumplings- vegan

Delicious in a bean and veggie stew! Mine had fava beans, black beans and beancurd

These dumplings are perfect for times when you want something other than bread with your stew. They are very quick and simple to make, and quite filling, too. 2 per person is probably enough. My recipe makes 12-15, depending on the size. I used 15 between 6 people.


200g wholewheat flour
100g cornmeal (aka makai da atta)
warm water to mix 
1 1/2 tsps seasalt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 level tsps baking powder
1 tab fresh sage
1/2 tab fresh rosemary
  • Snip the fresh herbs very small with scissors. You can add more for a stronger taste if you like, bu tI preferred it not to be too overpowering.
  • Mix all the ingredients together except for the water.
  • Now add the water, a little at a time, until you have a workable dough.
  • Knead for about 2 minutes, then roll into balls.
  • Boil the dumplings in water for 25-30 minutes, or you can cook them directly in a stew if the stew is going to take that amount of time to make.

  1. That's something I've never had before. It seems to be easy and quick if it's cooked with the stew. Perfect one pot meal...
