Good and easy to prepare, you can use different vegetable to change these up! These dumplings could be called a "surprise" dish, in the sense that depending on the bread you use and the vegetables, they will be different each time. One thing that makes the dish very good is the addition of a little light soy sauce (the light, less salty) to the broth. Try!

- 1 tablespoon crushed flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon crushed sunflower seeds
- salt to taste
- light soy sauce to taste
- nutritional yeast to taste (optional)
- You will need an abundant quantity of good vegetable broth (a part you will need to cook the dumplings, another part to serve at the table because the cooking broth does not remain clear and must be replaced).
- Break up the bread and sprinkle it with vegetable stock (the amount of broth must be enough to soften the bread without soaking it in. Add a little at a time, this recipe needed about a ladle and a half) and leave it overnight or at least a few hours .
- Blanch the black cabbage for three minutes, then remove the central rib from the larger leaves. Finely chop and sauté in a pan with a little oil and a clove of garlic.
- Finely chop the leek, the shallot, the carrot and a small piece of celery and sauté them with a clove of garlic in a little extra virgin olive oil.
- In a bowl mix a tablespoon of minced flax seeds with three tablespoons of water. Add the vegetables to the bread and mix well. Add miso, flax seeds, chopped parsley, abundant nutmeg (always taste before adding) and coarsely chopped sunflower seeds. Salt if necessary.
- Finally add the oat flour. Let the dough rest for a few hours (if you have time to prepare it the day before, it is much better) Form the dumplings by taking a little 'dough and shaping it in your hands. Cook them in the boiling broth for five minutes on a gentle flame.
- Serve three dumplings for each diner, placing them in the middle of the dish and pouring some vegetable broth to which you have added a little 'light soy sauce (the one not too salty so to speak). Serve hot!
