One Pot Soup Recipes For the Win!

This creamy comfort food soup is the perfect one-pot lunch or dinner!  I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these fall months when the weather starts to turn cooler. Cooking everything in one pot is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  All the food gets cooked at once, which makes cleaning up a breeze. And the stove does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. One Pot meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy one pot meals that are ready in no time!

How Do I Make this Dairy Free Chicken and Dumplings Soup Recipe?

  1. In a large soup pot, add the olive oil, onion, and garlic. Saute on low heat for 5 to 6 minutes until the veggies become translucent. Add the carrots and celery and saute for an additional 3 minutes.
  2. Add the potatoes, chicken breast, chicken stock, salt, and thyme and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook on low for 30 minutes until veggies are soft. Add the corn and peas and stir well.
  3. Mix all the dumpling ingredients in a bowl, and knead a few times with your hands until the dough is well combined.
  4. With a small scoop (I used a small melon baller) scoop 1 teaspoon of dough into the soup at a time. The dumplings should be roughly the same size. Add each dumpling to the soup until all the dough is gone.  Then add the fresh parsley. Cover the soup and simmer for an additional 15 minutes.  Dumplings should be cooked all the way through.
  5. Serve with a fresh side salad, a slice of thick crusty bread, and enjoy!
