Total time: 3½ hours
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 large red pepper, diced
- 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
- To make the dumpling, beat eggs, salt, and pepper with an electric mixer in a medium bowl for 2 to 3 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in almond flour and refrigerate mixture for about 3 hours or until dough is firm.
- Fill a stockpot with water and heat over high. While waiting for water to boil, scoop 1 heaping Tbsp. of dough into the palm of your hand and roll into a 1½-inch ball to form a dumpling. Place it on a plate and repeat with remaining dough.
- When water is boiling, add dumplings and lower heat to medium. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- In a separate large pot, bring broth to a simmer. Remove dumplings from water with a slotted spoon and add to broth. Add red pepper and spinach and simmer for about 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Ladle 2 to 3 dumplings, chicken broth, and veggies into individual bowls and serve piping hot.
