Traditional Dumpling Soup

“Knodel” are one of the typical bread “gnocchi” from Alto Adige. A typical first course which can be eaten in soup or dry. It is considered a dish typical of peasant cooking because it made use of stale bread.

Servings 4
7 oz rustic bread
7 oz milk
3 ½ oz speck (smoked raw ham)
3 oz Italian "00" flour or all-purpose flour
2 eggs
¾ oz parsley
⅛ oz chives
2 lb broth
nutmeg to taste
salt to taste

20 minutes preparation + 15 minutes cooking

Step 1
Trim any dry brown crust from the bread. Cut the soft inner part into regular-sized cubes.

Step 2
Put the cubes in a bowl, add the speck, chives, parsley, nutmeg and beaten eggs.

Step 3
Add the milk and allow to soften. Gently mix to make the whole thing more compact.

Step 4
Add some flour to the mixture, to dry up any superfluous moisture. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5
Work the dough and, using two spoons, make some “quenelle”, small balls the size of a walnut.

Step 6
Bring a good meat stock to the boil, toss in the “canederli” and let them cook for 15 minutes, making sure that the boiling is not too vigorous.

The reason why the boiling must not be too vigorous is because the “quenelle” could split during cooking.
