Knoephla Soup

This is a very versatile soup.  The knoephla dough is standard, but the remaining can be changed to meet the needs of your family.  For instance, my hubby likes to put in a jar of vegetable flakes to the broth (found in the spice isle), but my boys won’t eat it then.  I like to have potatoes in mine, but others don’t like that….so add or delete what you want.  If you want it to be richer, add cream or half/half vs. milk. 

Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours

Knoephla Dough:

  • 3 c flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 c warm milk
  • 1/2 t salt

   Broth:

  • 4 c chicken broth
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 c celery, diced
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 c milk (or cream if you want it richer)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Bay Leaf

Directions

  • Mix eggs and warm milk.  Add salt and flour to make soft dough.
  • Let rest about 1 hour.  While this is resting, cut up the other ingredients (onions, celery, etc).
  • Boil water in large pot. after the dough has rested.
  • Cut dough with butter knife (I dip mine in the boiling water and use the flat side to cut the knoephla).  The knoephla should be a about the size of a quarter or a little bigger.
  • Boil for 20 minutes.
  • In a separate pot, boil the onions and celery in the chicken broth for about 20 minutes.  If you want to add potatoes, feel free…just cut them very small.
  • Drain the knoephla.
  • Add the onion, celery and chicken broth to the big pot.
  • Add cream of chicken soup and stir.
  • Add the knoephla, bay leaf and milk.  (You may add more milk depending on how thin you want the soup).
  • Simmer for 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Serve.
