  • Stir together the semolina flour, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl; set aside. Whisk together the egg, olive oil, and salt in a larger bowl until smooth. Slowly whisk in the semolina until a soft dough has formed.

  • Drop the dumpling dough by the teaspoonful into the boiling water. Boil until the dumplings float to the surface and have grown in size, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and serve immediately.

The recipe made four lovely little dumplings. I used a very fresh egg from my chickens - not sure if that was the difference - they certainly didn't give a hint of falling apart. Instead of putting the dumplings in boiling water I put them into my bubbling soup. Could have used a little more seasoning. Read More

This is a great starting point. I made the dumplings exactly as stated. First I think they need more semolina the mixture was a little thin and my dumplings fell apart in the water and it wasn't even a strong boil. Next time I might try making the mixture and then letting it sit in the fridge to firm a bit. The taste was really good. I have been trying to re-create dumplings from a little deli in my hometown and these came closest to taste I just need to work on texture. Read More
