Here is a simple, yet, wonderful recipe of dumplings very similar to Matzo Balls. I loved them already as a child and even can eat them cold! If you don't watch out to get your share I'll eat them all.

The main ingredient is seminola flour, which you can purchase at the store (I can find it at Publix, have not checked on the other stores). Seminola flour is durum wheat. This flour can also be used to make a wonderful pudding and porridge for babies.

If you can't find it at the local store, the link below will get you to, where you can purchase it.

Here is what you need to serve 4 people, if I am one of them it will only serve 3 :)

1/2 lbs (200g) seminola flour

2 cups (1/2 liter) milk

1 1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

4 ounce butter (margarine will do it)

nutmeg to taste

min. 4 cups broth or soup

Bring milk, butter, salt and a pinch of nutmeg to a boil. Pour all seminola flour in the pot and stir quickly and firmly (best with a wooden spoon) until it forms a thick, firm mass (like a big lump). Remove from stove to let cool a little. Now add one egg at a time and stirr it in very well, as well as additional salt and mutmeg to taste.

You have two options to form the balls and the size is up to you, yet, they are not as big as regular potato dumplings. Some like to form very small dumplings, others a bit bigger.

You can either use two spoons to form an oval like mass and carefully slip it off into the boiling broth or soup. Or you can roll them in your palm. I don't make them too small, because I like them too much :-).

The dumplings will rise quickly to the surface, which means they are done.

I usually make a soup with chicken and whatever vegetable I have available. In the picture it is a soup with carrot and leek. But whatever vegetable is your favorite you can choose or you can just have a plain broth with these dumplings.

They don't take much to make and are done quickly, not much preparation needed.

      Not sure if the repy fits here but since you replied here I will respond here. I believe in writing and not filling up the entire hub with pictures. I am a writer firsthand, and not an advertiser with bloating a hub or article with pictures.

      Also this page is my first step slowly into my long term goal of writing and publishing more than just hubs, a book is underway, actually two and I have the goal to turn it into a full time career.

      But life took turns and slowed things down and that's one of the reasons why there are no more newer hub lately. I hope it will change soon.

      I was curious if you ever thoguht of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what you've got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You've got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
