Second Recipe

Turkey Dumpling Delight
Ingredients

5 cups water
5 cups
chicken broth

1
skinless turkey breast (4 to 5 pounds)

3 tablespoons
flour

1 1/2 cups
flour

1 cup
milk

1
small rutabaga, chopped

1 rib
celery, sliced

3
carrots, sliced

1/2 teaspoon
ground black pepper

2 tablespoons
parsley

1 tablespoon
baking powder

1/4 teaspoon
salt

4 tablespoons
trans-free margarine

Directions
1.

Heat the water and the broth in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. When the broth begins to simmer, add the turkey breast, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the turkey breast is cooked through. Remove the turkey from the broth and set it aside to cool.
2.
In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of the flour with 1/2 cup of the milk. Pour the mixture into the broth. Cook, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes, or until the flour mixture dissolves. Add the rutabaga, celery, carrots, and pepper. Cook for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
3.
Remove the turkey from the bone. Chop it into small pieces and add 4 cups of chopped turkey to the soup. (Reserve the rest for another use.) Cook for 3 minutes, or until the turkey is heated through.
4.
In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining 1 1/2 cups of flour, parsley, baking powder, and salt just until combined. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk and the margarine. Mix until just blended.
5.
Drop 1/4-cup mounds of the dumpling mixture into the broth. Cover, cook for 6 minutes, then uncover and cook for another 6 minutes, or until the dumplings are dry in the center.
