So, I literally just wrote a post on food photography lighting. And then as I went to save it, WordPress logged me out. When I signed in again, my whole post had vanished! Ugh!!!! Let’s just say, I am not happy about re-writing the whole thing again (Cue sad face please). Sorry for the totally random rant about my day:) Moving on.

Chicken Soup Love

Anyway, on a happier note, this soup is to die for! Not joking when I say this is my absolute favorite soup! This recipe was actually created by my lovely sister.

I am in love with this soup! Many times has She made a pot of this soup. And it was devoured… by only the two of us. Ha ha…:) What can I say? Chicken soup has always had a special spot in my heart. I probably get way too excited at the thought of some broth and veggies, but hey.

This soup is made with dumplings that consist of purely rice flour… no extra gluten free flour mixes. No hassle of mixing up different flour blends. Just good old rice flour. In my opinion, and my family’s, this soup is incredibly creamy! Which is fairy surprising. Because, normally rice flour has a kinda grainy texture. The only problem with this soup is that it with every bite, I only want more!

I was debating on publishing this recipe with the large serving size it is. But then I thought about how there are rarely leftovers in this house. So I kept it at 10 servings. Of course, to change the serving size, simply select the arrows next to the serving amount. This will automatically calculate measurements for smaller or larger servings.  Enjoy every bite, because I bet there isn’t going to be left overs.

Nothing is better than a good slice of bread along side a bowl of soup. For a grain free bread recipe, check out my Rustic Paleo bread Roll recipe!

Ingredients
Soup
Dumplings
Instructions
Soup
  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the soup pan and saute for few minutes until caramelized and golden brown. This will take approximately 5-10 minutes.
  2. Add the chopped carrots, water, and seasonings to the pan and cook (with a lid covering the pot) for 20-30 minutes or until carrots are soft.
  3. Add the chopped chicken into the pot and cook for 5 minutes.
Dumplings
  1. For the dumplings, combine all of the ingredients together in a medium size mixing bowl and combine until the dough is evenly mixed.
  2. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter at a time into the soup pan and cook on low heat for an additional 10 minutes (with a lid covering the pot).
  3. You will know the soup is finished when it is thick and creamy and the dumplings are cooked through- test by cutting a dumpling in half to see that is it cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on different stove brands.

    The soup turned out delicious, however the dumplings came out a bit to salty then what I like. All in all though great recipe! Thank you!

    I tried the almond flour.. doesn’t work. The dumplings dissolved as soon as I placed them in to the soup =/ tasted like regular chicken soup so at least it tasted good, just wish the dumplings had worked out.

    For a paleo version I used Cassava flour in place of rice flour and it worked great. I had to increase the water to 1 3/4 cups in the dumplings. Great recipe!

    Was looking for a Celiac friendly recipe for my nephew. Test ran this on myself and my S.O. first. It was okay. Neither of us were crazy about the dumplings. The olive oil came through too strongly and the texture of the dumplings was off. I think I’ll try the gluten free Bisquick mix for the dumplings instead. I will say, though, that the one nice thing about using the rice flour is that the soup thickened up nicely.

    I made the dumplings into a soup I was making, and they didn’t work out well at all. They didn’t cook well ( even if i left them in for over 10 min). They were dry and mealy, and much too salty. I also think that GF flour mixes would give them a fluffier, more satisfying dumpling feel.

    I liked the soup but there is no broth, and even thought I followed recipe completely and it was light almost flavorless, however! Perhaps broth wasn’t added idk I add chicken broth and it helped my soup never got thick but I used quinoa flour mixed with gf blend a cup of each. And it was pretty good. This soup did come out great I had to add a few things but other then that I liked it .

    Great recipe! I ended up making my own chicken broth ahead of time and used more broth than what it called for. It thickened up nicely once adding the dumplings in. However, my dumplings never cooked through either. Kaylie how are you making your dumplings? I also had to add a little more water as the dough was not binding.

    Delicious recipe! My dumplings melted, though, so it was more of a creamy soup, which was fine because it had an amazing flavor.
