This was fantastic! I used 5 plum tomatoes and no sugar (I was out), and replaced the basil with Italian seasoning and garlic powder and three teaspoons of fresh chopped garlic, and, being lazy, eyeballed the amounts instead of measuring anything. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly. I will definitely be making this again.
Never saw this coming. Instead of having a reasonably tasty little side dish as anticipated, we decided it was more like we'd died and gone to veggie heaven! Because all the zukes looked shrivelled up and terrible, I used a medium eggplant instead, sauteing it first and then adding the tomatoes, etc. Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe, Flemish Minx. It was just crazy good!
By far the best meal I have ever made. I'm not sure how this can taste so good, but trust me it does. My finicky niece gobbled it up, and my boyfriend and I wished we had made more. As in about three times more, because it is so delicious. Flavorful and awesome. Thanks for the keeper!!
I tried the recipe last night and it was wonderful. I ate it as a main course. It had a lot of great flavors. One thing that I will do differently next time I fix the dish is peal the tomatoes.
Excellent! What a great flavor for dumplings. I paried 1-fresh tomato w/ 1-can diced petite toms in water. I let it simmer with spices, onions, garlic and balsamic vinegar for 10-min. Added zuchinni (w/ peel) and simmered for 15-min and then mushrooms at the end (they cook quickly). I was amazed at how the parm. cheese took on body w/ the egg. Strong parm. flavor requires a distinct like for it. I like it!
Excellent! Just made it tonight and I've never had dumplings before. Not really a fan of parmesan but the rest of my family is so I made it and let me tell you-this turned me into a parmesan believer! I made a couple of changes as it was only for 3 of us-Made the dumpling mixture the same and made three large dumplings, cut back the tomato to 3 and the zucchini to one and a half but at my moms insistence i must make more of it next time because it was so good. I also cut down the olive oil to 1 tablespoon and would probably cut it down to 2 teaspoons next time, just because thats all you need and it is more healthy. I also left out the onions because I hate them. So good and easy and delicious! Thanks!
Pretty amazing, where did you find this!? I loved it. As suggested I paired with grilled salmon and it was great, however I think I may prefer it with chicken. I used egg whites and it worked fine I think, the dumplings stayed together and there were no problems there. I served this to a friend and when they discovered the dumpling their eyes lit up wide, it was great. Thanks so much for posting.
This is an OUTSTANDING recipe. Even my very particular vegetarian daughter in law was visibly delighted with it and asked for the recipe. Thank you FlemishMinx
