Rain. Snow. Sleet. Wind. That's what greeted me when I stepped out of work today. It seemed like a good time to make soup and this is what I made for the first time ever.
3 cups chicken broth
3 cups milk (I used 2%)
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 cup carrots, peeled and diced
1 tbsp celery flakes
1 bay leaf
salt to taste
1 1/2 cups flour
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk - add until a workable dough - it might take 1-2 tbsp less
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp parsley
Combine broth and milk. Add in rest of soup ingredients and cook until potatoes and carrots are tender.
In a small bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Whisk egg and add with half the milk. Keep adding milk until a stiff dough forms. Place 1/2 tsp of flour on a cutting board and knead the dough for a couple minutes. Divide dough into 4 pieces and roll into 1/2" ropes. Cut each into 1/2" pieces and drop into the soup. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes.
