Directions

Directions

  1. Add oil to a large soup pot over medium-high heat.

  2. Add fennel, onion and celery to oil and sauté until onions turn clear (around 4-5 minutes). Add butternut squash, sage, chicken broth, water, salt (optional), black pepper and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.

  3. Simmer stew for 20 minutes, then add kale and simmer 10 more minutes.

  4. While stew is simmering, whisk together all dumpling ingredients to form a stiff batter. Set aside.

  5. After kale simmers for 10 minutes remove bay leaf.

  6. Use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop dumplings on top of stew to make 8 dumplings. Do not stir once dumplings have been added to the top of the stew. Cover and reduce to a low simmer for 10 minutes until dumplings are cooked through and puffed.
