Is there any better comfort food than soup with dumplings? It’s literally just warm and stodge and cuddle in food form. I love it.
I’ve added a slightly lighter dumpling (without the suet) to vegetable soup but you could definitely take this dumpling recipe and add it to something like this chicken and vegetable soup for even more indulgence.
But if you really want something that’s going to warm you right through then keep scrolling to get this beef vegetable soup with dumplings.
So the clocks went forwards yesterday and when I got home from work today it was light for the first time since last year. It was amazing.
I am a spring and summer lover. I’m usually cold so the winter is normally pretty miserable for me and I love how much better my mood is in the summer just by virtue of the sun being out. Everything just looks so amazing in the sunshine.
So this is my last wintery recipe before it’s all salads and barbecues and the like. Maybe. Let’s be real here there will probably still be a big helping of polenta and various other comfort foods because I just love them.
Also it’s hardly like British summers are so luxuriously hot that you can’t have a big old bowl of comfort food every once in a while.

So this soup then. It starts off by frying off the beef chunks until browned on all sides and starting to get all charred and crispy.
Then you’ll remove that from the pot and add in the vegetables to soften before pouring in the wine and beef stock, adding the beef again and cooking everything for an hour and a half until the beef is super tender and delicious.
A bit before the end of cooking just pop some dumplings on top and you’ve got a delicious beef vegetable soup with dumplings ready to go!
