2 tbs dried, unseasoned vegetable soup mix

1 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 cup cream of rice cereal
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk substitute added 1 tbs at a time
1. Combine chicken stock, dried vegetables and salt and pepper. Heat until boiling. Turn down heat and simmer.
2. While soup is heating, mix dry ingredients for the dumplings. Add egg and milk 1 tbs at a time and mix with dry ingredients. The consistency of the batter should be that of course meal. If it is too soft, you added too much milk substitute.
