So a few weeks ago, okay a month or two ago, I was sitting with Eric asking what I should make for dinner + he immediately said "if you make knoephla soup, I'll love you forever" well that was an offer I couldn't refuse ;)
I should mention that I had no idea what knoephla soup was! One of our co-workers had made it and he gets it from a local store for lunch sometimes.. so I was all sorts of "nope" because I hate new things? Just kidding, I am just surprisingly unsure about any and all NoDak food. Knoephla soup is a dumpling soup, just a fancier name.
-we also made brownies, and I like when he cooks ;)
This recipe I found on pinterest was super simple and pretty freaking good too!
I added more potatoes than needed cause I like them, Eric doesn't, but he can suffer cause I was cooking.
Rookie mistake was making the dumplings too big. Despite that one mistake it was hearty, warm and perfect for the snowy/stupidly cold nights we have here in North Dakota.
4 cups water
2 cups chicken broth
1 large onion, diced
2 cups potatoes, diced
2 bay leaves
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup cream
Knoephla Dough -German dumpling
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
Another cool thing about making this recipe was being tweeted by Kroll's Diner -which is a pretty big deal here?- so I was kind of humbled. And yes, I have a #nodakskillset but you don't have to be "nodakan" to try it out!
