My Romanian semolina dumplings are easy to prepare, but just require a few tricks to get them right. A delicious vegetarian recipe.
To make the dumplings, beat the egg with a pinch of salt until frothy, best to use an electric hand mixer if you have one.
Add the semolina, making sure that they are level teaspoon, and not rounded.
Beat well to get a smooth consistency, at this stage the mixture is pretty runny.
Leave to rest for at least 10-15 minutes, or until the veggies are tender.
To make the soup, bring the vegetable stock to a boil, add the peeled and chopped vegetables, and leave to cook until tender, it shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.
At this stage the semolina mixture is thicker.
Drop a tablespoon of semolina mixture at a time in the boiling soup, you should get about 5- 6 dumplings.
Leave to cook until the dumplings double their size and become fluffy.
Add the tomato paste, herbs and seasoning, and garnish with chopped parsley.
