This recipe uses dehydrated (not to be confused with freeze dried) vegetables. You can make these yourself at home with a dehydrator or in your oven on a low temperature.


  • 100g dried potatoes
  • 25g dried tomatoes
  • 15g dried onions
  • 50g bulgar wheat
  • 30g beef stock powder (or boullion cubes)
  • 30g any other dried vegetables (zucchini, bell peppers and yams are recommended)


This dumpling recipe is from the Joy of Cooking. Other dumpling recipes should work just as well.

  • 1c flour
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2c hot water


  1. Boil 1L water.
  2. Remove 1/2c hot water from the pot for dumplings and melt the butter into it.
  3. Add stew mixture to the pot and simmer.
  4. Combine 1/2c hot water, butter, and dumpling mix in a 4 cupper. The mixture should be quite dry. Keep it warm for 4 minutes in your down jacket to rise.
  5. Spoon bite sized dumplings into the stew. They should float at the top and rise as they cook. Simmer for about 10 minutes after this point to cook the dumplings.
