Quick Veggie Soup with Egg Dumplings & Dill

This is very quick and easy to prepare soup that can be made within minutes from freezer or cupboard ingredients.

Yesterday my younger daughter asked for our regular dumpling soup (with Caribbean style dumplings) but I did not have all of the ingredients plus didn’t really feel like shaping the dumplings so I made this vegetarian soup with Polish egg dumplings but being lazy instead of boiling them separate I just dropped them into the soup which turned out to be great idea. My girls loved this soup and the little one even asked for extra portion.

easy vegetarian soup recipe with egg dumplings dill and chilli flakes


  • 4 l of boiling water
  • 4 large vegetable cubes (10 g each)
  • 500 g mixed frozen veggies (with carrots, peas, broccoli etc.)
  • 2 large potatoes / about 250 g (peeled and cut into chunky pieces)
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • generous handful of fresh chopped dill or some frozen dill
  • chilli flakes
  • sea salt – to taste

for the egg dumplings

  • 3 tbs plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for dill, salt and chilli flakes, in large pot and cook until potatoes are ready.
  2. Stir in also the dill and season to taste with salt, if necessary.
  3. Use slotted spoon to share veggies to deep plates / bowls leaving all liquid still in the pot.
  4. In a bowl mix eggs with milk, add also flour and stir until well combined. The mixture should be sticky and hard to stir.
  5. Use table spoon to place portions of the dough in the soup, cook for about 10 minutes longer or until dumplings are ready, we like them a bit al dente.
  6. Top the veggies with soup and the dumplings, sprinkle with chilli flakes and enjoy.

Serves 4 – 5 people.


For children skip the chilli flakes.

For non vegetarian option add some cubed chicken breast together with all ingredients.

  3. Oh my gosh I totally need to do dumplings in a soup! Lightbulb moment (courtesy of you, of course)!

  4. ahhh, couldn’t you just sink into that soup and nestle next to one of those dumplings! They look like fluffy clouds… a gorgeous soup. I do love a clear broth with dumplings. A perfect link-up for Simply Eggcellent, thank you x

  5. Kavey, my husband often adds dumplings to his Caribbean soups so thought why not add Polish dumplings instead :)

    Dominic – you are very welcome. It is funny, my girls also call them clouds and they are really quite fluffy inside thanks to the eggs.

  6. What a simple and utterly delicious idea for a soup – love it! I regularly make soups to have in the fridge to take to work, and I love the thought of making little dumplings to go with it. I get so hungry sitting at my desk all day, and I bet this would totally fill me up. Def going to try.

  7. This sounds like such a lovely simple soup, love it. Would never have thought of using dill. I love making dumplings like this but usually add them to stews rather than soup – your way sounds fab.
