Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


4 ounces adzuki beans
soaked overnight
2 ounces butter
or margarine
1 medium onions
2 cloves garlic
1 pound leeks
trimmed, washed well and sliced
1 whole carrots
8 ounces mushrooms
wiped and sliced
1 tablespoon paprika
1 pinch cayenne pepper
to taste
2 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
½ pint vegetable stock
1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 pound tomatoes
1 x salt
to taste
1 x black pepper
to taste
1 x parsley leaves
chopped, to garnish
4 ounces whole-wheat flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ounce butter
or margarine
3 tablespoons parsley leaves
half if using dried
3 ounces water
or milk if preferred, or less as needed


Drain the beans and cover with fresh water. Bring to a boil & simmer until tender, about 35 minutes. Drain, reserving the liquid.

Heat butter or margarine in a large pot. Add the onion and cook until transparent. Add the garlic, leeks, carrot and mushrooms and cook gently for 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the paprika, pepper and flour.

Add stock, soy sauce, tomato paste, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Stir in the beans and bring back to a boil.

Add the dumplings. Cover with a tight fitting lid & simmer for 20 to 25 minutes very gently to prevent burning. Sprinkle generously with parsley before serving.

FOR DUMPLINGS: Put the flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in margarine until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in parsley. Add just enough liquid to make a firm dough. Divide into 8 pieces and shape into dumplings.

Serves 4 to 6.
