Turkey Soup


Serves 6

-1 tablespoon olive oil

-4 carrots, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced into half-moons

-1 onion, diced

-3 3/4 cups homemade or low-sodium canned chicken stock

-1 cup all-purpose flour

-1/3 cup yellow cornmeal

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add carrots and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Add stock and 2 cups water; bring to a simmer. Cover, and cook until vegetables are just tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in cheese and corn. Add egg and milk; stir vigorously to make a slightly sticky dough. Using lightly floured hands, form dough into 1-inch balls; set aside.

Add the turkey to soup; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle boil; add dumplings. Cover; cook until dumplings are cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Serve warm.
