A Family Tradition of Sauerkraut and Dumplings to Ring in the New Year!

Sauerkraut and Dumplin's from Home-Cooked Vegan Comfort Food (page 131)
Sauerkraut and Dumplin's
Throughout my entire life I thought my family was the only one who ate this ridiculous dish every year on New Year’s Day. Come to find out, when I went to my mommy to get the beloved family recipe, she told me, “Hold on a second, let me get out my box of Bisquick, the recipe is on the side of the box.” HA! Well, when she and my Gramma Jo made it, they would make the “dough balls” floating in a broth of sauerkraut and pork. It is with my pleasure that I share with you this very top secret recipe, without the pork, of course.

For the Sauerkraut:
6 cups (1410 ml) vegetable broth
1 large jar (32 ounces, or 896 g) prepared sauerkraut, with the juices
8 ounces (227 g) large chunk TVP or Soy Curls*

For the Dumplin’s:
3 1/2 cups (438 g) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (470 ml) soy milk
2 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
1/4 cup (56 g) melted nondairy butter

In a large pot, with a tight fitting lid, add vegetable broth and sauerkraut and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and add in TVP or Soy Curls.
To make the Dumplin’s: In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate small bowl combine soy milk and lemon juice. It will curdle and become like buttermilk.
Add melted butter to the buttermilk mixture and stir to combine.
Add wet to dry and mix to combine. Some lumps are okay.
The batter will be wet, like a very thick pancake batter.
Using an ice-cream scoop, carefully drop the dumplin’s into the simmering sauerkraut. Repeat until all of the batter is used and the dough balls almost create a solid layer on top of the sauerkraut.
Cover and cook for about 30 minutes, or until doughballs are fully cooked. They will still look moist on the outside, but the insides should be fluffy.
Scoop a doughball into a bowl and ladle with the sauerkraut.
Serve hot.

Yield: 8 servings
