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.

Vegan Chicken and Dumplings

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 tastes, 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. You can substitute my gluten-flour blend with your favorite gluten-free flour and just add baking powder, salt, non-dairy butter and non-dairy milk.

Instructions

  1. Soak Soy Curls™ in about 2 1/2 cups warm water for about 10 minutes. Drain Soy Curls and toss with Bragg's liquid aminos and Italian seasoning. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high. Saute Soy Curls for about 5 minutes, turning often until slightly brown, set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat, add onion and cook until soft for about 3 minutes. Add green onion, garlic, celery, thyme, rosemary sage and cayenne pepper, cook for another minute. Stir in carrots and potatoes and cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add water or vegetable broth and nutritional yeast. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes while you make the dumplings.

Dumplings

  1. To make dumplings, combine brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Cut butter in flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add almond milk and form into a dough, take pieces of dough and lightly form into a ball. Drop into the stew and cook for 15 minutes. Stir in the Soy Curls and serve.

      Hello De, yes tofu can be substituted for the soy curls. I don’t like the taste of chickpea flour on its own so I wouldn’t recommend it, I don’t it has a very strong bean flavor, but that’s just my personal view. Now I’m curious to hear what it tastes like if you do use it. let me know how it turns out.

    I can only eat organic soy so I was wondering if you could think of a good substitue for the soy curls since they are not organic. Thanks!

    Made this tonight and it was amazing!! Thanks so much for making it possible for me to enjoy one of my favorite meals as a kid. Loved the mix of herbs and spices and veggies. I would only use 1/2 a bag of soy curls next time. First time using them and I loved them but this made a lot! I didn’t have potato starch so used corn starch and the dumplings turned out great!

    Just double checking on the tapioca starch – 1/4 tablespoon? I’m going with a 1/4 cup for now, but please let me know. I am making this as I type & the stew smells delicious! Found your recipe on Facebook & ordered the soy curls from Amazon immediately. Had not heard of these before but I see so many uses. Will let you know how this turns out.
