    Gluten Free Version: This is a spectacular recipe!! We replaced the flour with rice flour (Red Mill) and it was a dream. We also chopped fresh spring onions to sprinkle on the top once served. Yummy!!!!

    This recipe actually came from the back of MSL magazine in the "Fit to Eat" section. It's very low cal, even with the dumplings. Don't skip them next time! This is a "keeper" recipe in my opinion, which I've made numerous times. The parsley and lemon zest give the dumplings a beautiful, bright, fresh flavor. And, when they break up slightly in the soup, they act as a thickener, making the dish feel so indulgent and satisfying. You don't even know it's "light."

    This didn't turn out for me. It is the most flavorless soup ever. I didn't make the dumplings which I am sure would be good but I am trying to diet. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. It needs all homemade stock in my opinion.

    My boyfriend made this for me and we loved it. The flavors are light and delicious while the dumplings add richness. The one downside was that he overworked the dumplings and their centers were too gummy. will make this again though!

    Best Soup EVER! I like when the dumplings fall apart, it makes the soup a bit richer.

    This soup's flavor is really excellent. I didn't have success with the dumplings; they broke apart in the soup.
