This Egg and Dairy Free Dumpling Soup is made from a chicken broth base with lots of fresh vegetables. For those who are gluten free, I’ve added a wheat free option which I made for my middle daughter who is allergic to wheat on top of lots of other foods. It’s also a really fun meal for the kids to help with..you might want to check the sealing of the dumplings though before cooking….you will thank me later! One of our favourite family meals is Dumplings, so I make lots and keep half for the next night. We will have them in a broth the first night then boiled and pan fried the next with rice and steamed veges, so it feels like we’ve had two quite different meals.
This Gluten, Dairy, Egg Free Curried Sweet Potato Soup is perfect for a cold day when you don’t have much time but want something comforting packed full of flavour 🙂 Or any other day actually!
I absolutely love creamy soups in Winter but unfortunately cream doesn’t love me or my children….so we tend to substitute coconut cream and luckily coconut is the perfect flavour combination for this Gluten, Dairy, Egg Free Curried Sweet Potato Soup. In New Zealand we have a type of sweet potato called Kumara which I used but any type of sweet potato is fine.
Creamy Cauliflower Soup is something I used to have often for a quick winter lunch when I was working in busy kitchens, and along with Jerusalem Artichoke soup (with lashings of truffle oil) would have to be one of my favourite soups of all time 🙂 I happened to have nearly a whole head of cauliflower wasting away in my fridge and a container of chicken stock left over from something I made yesterday, so even though it’s not really soup weather here right now, I thought I’d see if it was a winner for the kids. Two out of three can eat cauliflower and they both seemed to like it..I thought it was fab so definitely a winner! The coconut cream and the Moroccan spice sort of balanced each other out so it was neither really ‘coconutty’ or spicy, just really smooth and creamy. I served mine with roasted cauliflower, bacon pieces and salted whipped coconut cream with chopped chives which was a bit super naughty and nice, but you don’t have to.
