  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 cups chicken broth (or water/broth combo)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots


  • To make the dough, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the butter and milk until the butter melts. Add the warm milk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix.
  • In a large pot, bring the broth just to a boil, then lower the heat to medium. Add 1 cup of the carrots.
  • Form 1/2-inch balls of dough and add them to the pot. Simmer uncovered over medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes. The broth will thicken as the dumpling batter breaks down a bit.
  • Divide the soup into bowls and sprinkle each bowl with the remaining carrots.
