Gluten-free flour blend: 2 ounces gluten-free plain flour blend. For those looking for a gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat flour, this recipe calls for the use of gluten-free plain flour blend made from wheat starch, tapioca starch, and rice flour. It is essential that you use a gluten-free flour blend to avoid any potential symptoms for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Baking powder and salt: ½ teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt.

Mixed herbs: 1 tablespoon of dried mixed herbs gives the dumplings their flavor.

Yogurt: 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt help to create the fluffy texture of the dumplings. Make sure you choose a dairy-free option if you are avoiding dairy products.

Water: 2 tablespoons of water are needed to bind the mixture together.

Black pepper: A pinch of freshly ground black pepper is added to taste.

These simple ingredients come together to make hearty gluten-free herb dumplings that are perfect for adding to soups, stews, or even serving alongside pork chops.

Are you ready to get cooking? Let’s make some Wicklewood Herb Dumplings that are not only gluten-free, but also dairy-free! This recipe makes about 8-10 fluffy dumplings, perfect for a small group.

Step 1: Prepare the Dough

In a mixing bowl, combine 2 ounces of gluten-free plain flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Mix well. Then add in 1 tablespoon of mixed herbs (whatever herbs you like). I recommend a combination of rosemary, thyme, and sage for a delicious flavor. Mix well again.

Next, mix in 2 tablespoons of dairy-free yogurt, making sure to mix everything together until it forms a dough. If the dough is too dry, add a tablespoon or two of water.

Step 2: Shape the Dumplings

Dust your hands with gluten-free flour so the dough doesn’t stick. Now, divide the dough into roughly 8-10 pieces and roll each piece into a ball between your palms until smooth.

Step 3: Add to Your Dish

Once you’ve rolled all the dumplings, arrange them on top of your dish (such as stew or soup) and cover with a tight lid.

Step 4: Steam the Dumplings

Make sure there’s liquid simmering underneath (like chicken stew) and let the dumplings steam for about 20 minutes. Resist opening the lid to check them – this can interfere with the steaming process and make the dumplings tough instead of fluffy.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy

Once they’re done steaming, you’re ready to enjoy your perfectly fluffy gluten-free herb dumplings!

Substitutions and Variations

I know that not everyone will have the exact ingredients that my recipe calls for. Fear not, my dear reader! I’m here to give you some ideas on how to substitute or vary the ingredients in this dish.

Firstly, if you’re making gluten-free dumplings from scratch, you can switch out the wheat flour for gluten-free flour. You could try rice flour or a gluten-free blend of flours, which are widely available in grocery stores. I’ve used 2 ounces of gluten-free plain flour and 1/2 an ounce of wheat starch for this recipe.

If you don’t have mixed herbs at hand, you can use dried herbs which are easily available at your local spice shop or supermarket. A combination of thyme, rosemary, marjoram, and sage can give a lovely aroma to your dumplings.

For vegetarian or vegan options, you can substitute yogurt with plant-based yogurt alternatives like coconut yogurt or soy yogurt.

If you don’t want to make chicken stew with these dumplings, you can simply drop them into a pot of boiling water as “matzo balls” which is a staple Jewish Passover dish. Or alternatively add them to pork chops with gravy for a delicious variation.

Additionally, if you don’t want to make dumplings from scratch, store brought dumpling wrappers like wonton wrappers or potstickers work just as well. For those who prefer fluffy dumpling consistency instead of suet dumplings known historically in England as Ploughman Roly Poly, adding baking powder instead will do the trick.

The beauty of this recipe is that it is highly versatile and easy to adjust depending on what ingredients are available in your pantry. Don’t be afraid to get creative and experiment with different variations!

Serving and Pairing

There’s nothing quite like a hearty bowl of chicken stew with fluffy dumplings on a cozy evening. But these gluten-free herb dumplings aren’t just limited to chicken dishes — they can pair deliciously with a variety of dishes.

For a vegetarian option, serve these dumplings alongside a vegetable stew or soup. They can also add an extra boost of flavor to pork chops or beef stews. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using them as a filling for matzo balls or potstickers.

I recommend serving these dumplings hot and fresh, straight from the pan. Top them with some freshly ground black pepper and salt for an added burst of flavor. For an even creamier taste, you can serve them alongside some plain yogurt.

But don’t limit yourself to savory dishes — these herb dumplings also make for a delicious dessert. Try serving them as roly-poly with some sweetened fruit compote or ice cream for a perfect balance of sweet and savory flavors.

No matter how you choose to serve them, these gluten-free herb dumplings are sure to make your taste buds sing. So go ahead and experiment with different flavors and pairings until you find your perfect match.

Picture this: it’s a busy weekday evening, and you’re already dreaming of cozying up on the couch with a bowl of hearty stew filled with tender chicken, aromatic spices and delectable Wicklewood Herb Dumplings. But with work, errands, and everything else vying for your attention, who has time to make fresh dumplings from scratch every day?

Well, here’s some great news. You can easily make these gluten-free herb dumplings in large quantities ahead of time and store them for later use.

To make ahead, follow the recipe as directed until you get to Step 6. At this point, shape the dumpling dough into even balls and arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

When you’re ready to cook them, simply drop the chilled dumplings into your hot stew and continue simmering as usual. Voila! Your fluffy homemade dumplings are ready in no time.

To store leftover dumplings, allow them to cool completely at room temperature before transferring them to an airtight container or freezer bag. You can keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To reheat, use a microwave or oven-safe dish and add a splash of water or broth before reheating. You can also add some extra herbs or spices if desired.

Pro tip – if you have leftover plain dumplings, try slicing them in half and pan-frying them until crispy-golden brown on each side, then serve it on its own as an appetizer, snack or side dish!

When it comes to making dumplings, a little effort can go a long way. While Wicklewood’s Herb Dumplings recipe is already delicious in its own right, there are a few tips and tricks I’d like to share with you to make sure your dumplings come out perfectly every single time.

First of all, make sure your ingredients are at room temperature before mixing them together. If you’re using yogurt or milk, take it out of the fridge and give it an hour or two to come up to room temperature. This will ensure that your dough mixes together more smoothly, resulting in tender and fluffy dumplings.

Also, be careful not to overwork the dough. Once you’ve combined your wet and dry ingredients, mix everything together until just combined. Overmixing can lead to tough, chewy dumplings.

When dropping your dumplings into the stew or soup, avoid crowding them too closely together. Give each dumpling plenty of space so they have room to expand and cook evenly.

One final tip: resist the urge to peek! Opening the lid on your pot can cause temperature fluctuations that interfere with the cooking process. Trust the cooking times indicated in the recipe and try not to disturb the bubbling goodness underneath until everything is finished cooking.

By following these simple tips, you’ll be well on your way to perfecting Wicklewood’s Herb Dumplings – or any other type of dumpling recipe you choose to tackle in the future. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of flour or flavorings either – with a little practice, you’ll surely become a master in no time!

The egg is also important for binding but can be replaced with an egg replacer for those with dietary restrictions.
