  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 chopped (white and green parts only)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup dry white wine (or chicken stock and 2 tsp/ 10mL white wine vinegar)
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Cheese Dumplings:

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook leeks and onion, stirring often, until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in flour and pepper; cook for 1 minute.

Stir in wine; increase heat to medium-high. Boil until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Stir in stock and salt ; bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. (make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold. Transfer to airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Or freeze for up to 2 weeks. Thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours.)

Cheese Dumplings:
Meanwhile, using fork, mash together cheese, flour, butter, egg, parsley, salt and pepper to make firm dough. With lightly dampened hands, roll tablespoonfuls (15 mL) of dough into balls; place on plate. Drop all at once into simmering soup. Simmer until dumplings float to surface, about 10 minutes.
