My good friend Kim is a vegetarian but now and then she makes vegan dishes (she is practically a vegan).
In an effort of expanding my food variety, I like to try some of Kim’s vegetarian and vegan meals. The best meal that she ever made for me, which is now one of my favorite meals to eat, is Vegan Chicken and Dumplings. I know most of you carnivores are thinking that it is probably gross and you can’t have a chicken dish without real chicken. Right? Wrong! I’m telling you the first time I had it I was shocked that it didn’t have chicken. It is rich, hearty, and the perfect comfort food to eat on a cold rainy day. I loved it so much that I was afraid to make it because I didn’t want to mess it up. But I did and it came out great.
Like most chicken and dumplings there are carrots, celery, onions, and the dumplings of course. Well I added my flare to this dish. I added peas, red potatoes, and used seasoned salt for my dumplings to give them some extra flavor. Although I would love to give Kim all the credit, and to some degree I do, this recipe was created by Darla from Bakingdom, one of my most favorite food blogs. If you try it, you have to let me know how you like it! Of course, you can use the recipe for real chicken if you are a carnivore.
