    03 Method
    • Step 1
      Heat the oil in a large stockpot over medium heat and add the onion, celery, squash and garlic. Saute the vegetables until they start to soften, 4-5 minutes.
    • Step 2
      Sprinkle the flour and stir to combine. Cook 1-2 minutes, then add the thyme, bay leaf and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, then cover and simmer until the vegetables are cooked for about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken, parsley, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.
    • Step 3
      To make the dumplings, whisk the flours, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Stir the buttermilk, egg, and parsley together in a second bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined.
    • Step 4
      Using two spoons, drop balls of the dumpling dough into the simmering soup. Each dumpling should be about two teaspoons big- they will expand a lot in the soup. Cover the pot and cook until the dumplings are fluffy and cooked through, 10-12 minutes.
    • Step 5
      Garnish with chopped parsley and plenty of black pepper.
