Chives’ dumplings

Finally, a new recipe to include in our weekly meal plans. This was the second time I made them at home, and I’m pretty sure you can’t fail this recipe. It’s a variation of a family recipe, but a simpler, easier and quicker version.

Ingredients (4 people)

1 dL milk
1/2 tablespoon of sugar
20 g of fresh yeast (or an equivalent of dried yeast)
300 g flour
1/2 tablespoon of salt
5 tablespoons of sliced (fresh or dried) chives (can be modified according to your taste)
1 egg
30 g of melted butter
butter and bread crumbs

To make the dumplings, first mix together the milk, sugar and fresh yeast crushed in small crumbs. Let it rise for a while. In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, chives and egg, add the yeast mixture and melted butter. Mix it all together and make several small dumplings (I usually make 5). Let it rise for about half an hour. You can cook them in a salted boiling water for about 10-15 minutes, or you can  freeze them, and have a quick meal for one of those busy days.

They’re best served covered with  buttered bread crumbs and a bowl of fresh green salad.
