Gluten-free Dumpling Recipe

 

Ingredients

3/4 cup white rice flour

3/4 cup brown rice flour

3/4 cup tapioca flour

1/2 cup cornmeal, finely ground

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 large eggs, beaten

1/4 cup of homemade stock (or water)

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 tsp salt

 

Method

Mix the eggs, broth or water and gradually add flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt to form a still dough. Knead well and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.  Cut into small strips with a sharp knife or break off small pieces and drop as they are (in irregular shapes) into simmering stew.  Cover the simmering stew and keep on medium low for 10 minutes.  No peaking!  When the time is up, gently flip over each dumpling and continue cooking until fluffy.  Enjoy!
