I have been meaning to share my recipe for the longest while, but there is nothing like the right time. This is my vegan version of the old classic dish, ‘ Chicken and Dumplings’. The beauty of my version is that it is vegan and gluten-free.

It is easy to prepare and the result is beyond amazing!

I love to prepare stews and I believe as a cook that is where my strength lies, taking simple ingredients and turning them into out of this world tasty recipes. 

Just like my all-time favorite Chickpea Stew, Lentil Stew, and Jamaican Stew Peas and Dumplings.

How To Make Vegan Chicken And Dumplings?

To prepare this vegan chicken and dumpling recipe, I rehydrate Butlers Soy Curls in hot water, then I drain the water and squeeze out as much liquid. I added seasonings and sauteed it for 5 minutes to lightly brown and seal the flavors.

I then saute the vegetables and herbs, next, the broth and seasonings.

I allow the stew to simmer, so flavors would meld, while I made the dumplings.

Finally, I added the dumplings to the flavorful stew.

Tips For Making Vegan Chicken and Dumplings

  1. You can substitute my gluten-flour blend dumpling blend with your favorite store-bought gluten-free all-purpose flour. Add the baking powder, salt, non-dairy butter, and non-dairy milk.
  2. Substitute soy curls with favorite vegetable protein, like marinated tofu or chickpeas.
  3. Substitute Bragg’s Liquid Aminos for Tamari.
