Fate Winter Vegetable Stew WIth Dumplings

Fate Winter Vegetable Stew WIth Dumplings

A heart warming winter stew. Perfect as the nights start to draw in and the temperature starts to drop.

The stew can be frozen & the dumplings freeze well but are best frozen uncooked. So just cook the amount you need for one meal and freeze the remainder.


For the stew:

  • 200g Onions
  • 150g Carrots
  • 100g Parsnips or turnips
  • 100g Sweet potatoes
  • 100g Celery
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 Tin chopped tomatoes
  • 200mls Water
  • Salt & pepper
  • Few drops suitable gravy browning

For the Dumplings:

  • 75 g Fate All-Purpose mix
  • 25 g block margarine
  • 35 mls water
  • Extra Fate All-Purpose mix to shape
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Chop the onions, carrots, parsnips or turnips, sweet potatoes and celery into even sized pieces. Heat the oil in a pan and gently heat. Cover the pan with a lid and leave to cook for 5-10 minutes until softened and lightly browned.
  2. Stir in the tomato purée, the tin of tomatoes and the water.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and add a few drops of gravy browning to give a rich colour.
  4. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat. Leave to simmer gently for 20-30 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.
  5. Meanwhile make the dumplings: Place the Fate All Purpose Mix into a bowl and rub in the block margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in salt and pepper and add the water.
  6. Using a metal spoon, mix well until the mixture is smooth. (It should be just like a soft pastry dough).
  7. Take about a teaspoon of mixture and using a little extra All-Purpose Mix on your hands, roll into a ball. Put the shaped dumpling on a plate while you shape the rest of the dumpling mixture.
  8. To Finish: Make sure your low protein stew is cooking and simmering well.
  9. Take the dumplings and gently place them on the top of the stew in the saucepan. Do not stir in. Put a lid on the pan and leave to cook for about 5 minutes.
  10. They will have risen and be light and fluffy. After this time, it is a good idea to take a dumpling out of the pan and cut it in half to test that it is cooked.

  1. Looking at recipes on PKUrecipes.com, but can’t see details of how many exchanges (amount of protein) contained in each. Does the amount of protein vary in each recipe or are they all designed to provide the same amount? If so, how much?
