I used these to round out a very simple vegetable soup since we were nearing the end of our grocery supply. I used two teaspoons to kind of scoop the dough back and forth into a little football and plop it in the pot -- very easy, and it made closer to 12 dumplings for me (each roughly plum-sized once they puffed up) so slightly more than the recipe indicated. Fine by me, because they were a huge hit! My boyfriend kept raving about the soup and it was absolutely the SIMPLEST thing and very filling. The flour in the dumplings kind of made the broth slightly creamy, and I really like that these dumplings can be seasoned differently with various spices and such. I added about 1-2 teaspoons each of olive oil and butter to make up for some margarine (we were out of basically everything) and they are very flavourful that way. Because these don't include egg, they can easily be made vegan with non-dairy milk and either all olive oil or a vegan margarine. So many possibilities! I might try working in some fresh herbs or pesto next time. These are so versatile, I'm definitely adding them to regular rotation for our soups. Thanks for the great recipe! :)
