How to Make It
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk flour with 1 tsp of salt until well combined.
  2. Add 6 tbsp of cold water, stirring to make a ball.
  3. Using your hands, knead a few times.
  4. Flatten the dough out and, using a sharp knife, cut approximately 20 gnocchi-sized pillows and set aside.
  5. Mix cornstarch into 2 tbsp of water and set aside.
  6. Line a medium pot with a thin layer of No-Chicken Broth and cook the onion and garlic until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  7. Add mushrooms and spices, continuing to cook until the mushrooms are soft and releasing juices, about 5 minutes, adding remaining broth as needed.
  8. Then add 1⁄2 cup of non-dairy milk and immediately whisk in nutritional yeast.
  9. Allow the mixture to come to a near boil, then add dumplings and bring to a boil again.
  10. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and keep cooking, stirring if necessary, until the dumplings start to float and are less doughy, about 4 minutes.

  12. Thin out mixture with remaining non-dairy milk if desired or necessary.
  13. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
