Spring might be here, but evenings are still cold…..days are rainy and gloomy.
Come on sunshine…..I am waiting for you, but till them I will comfort my family with SOUPS.
I don’t know about you, but gloomy spring days soups in my house are totally different from cold winter day soups.
Gloomy Spring Day Soups are light and full of color.
Yesterday was a very gloomy and rainy day…..perfect day to make delicious Vegetable Soup with Dumplings…..and hoping for warmer days to come….

STEP 2: Pour in the vegetable stock and water. Drop in the onion with top layers removed. Salt and pepper. Toss in the parsley (no need to chop it).
