2 quarts Mushroom or Vegetable Broth
1 Red or Yellow Onion, sliced
2 cloves of Garlic, sliced
3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups fresh Vitamin D enriched Mushrooms, sliced
2 cups Butternut Squash, diced
1 cup Parsnips, diced
1 cup Celery Root, diced
1 bunch fresh organic Thyme (bundled)
1/8 tsp grated Nutmeg
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 cups Soymilk or Almond Milk
2 tbsp Chia Seeds or Flax Seeds
Salt and Pepper, Garlic Powder to taste
In a large pot, heat the Olive oil over medium high heat, add the onions and garlic and saute 1-2 minutes. Turn up the heat, add the mushrooms and saute until soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the remaining vegetables and cook another 3-4 minutes. Add the thyme (bundled and tied for removal), then add the broth. Salt and pepper to taste. Bring the stew to a boil, cover, and allow to simmer for about 45 minutes.
Make the dumplings: Whisk together the flour, baking powder, seeds, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Then slowly whisk in the Soy or Almond Milk. The mixture should be slightly sticky and wet.
After the stew has simmered for 45 minutes, uncover and add the dumplings by the spoonful. Cover the stew and allow to steam for 4 minutes. Remove and discard the bundled thyme and tie before serving.
