Dumplings In Ham Soup With Leftover Colcannon#Soupswappers

This Colcannon is become are favorite salad at home. We often make this salad. I had remaining colcannon, decided to make a soup, with ham and dumplings. It's filling soup on it's own, requires no accompaniment.

Serves 2 
750 Ml Chicken Stock
4 French beans - cut in 2 or 3 pieces
1 Large Carrot - chopped into dice sized pieces
1/4 Cup Shredded Purple Cabbage
3 Tablespoons  Leftover Colcannon
1 Leek - finely chopped
200 Grams Ham - finely chopped
For the Dumplings
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons Leftover Colcannon
½ Teaspoon Heaped Baking powder
¼ Teaspoon Pepper Powder
1/3 Cup + Butter Milk

Take a large, saucepan , pour in the stock, colcannon, bean sprouts and chopped vegetables and mix it well, then place the pan on medium low flame bring to a simmer. Place the lid on and let it simmer for 10 minutes stirring in between.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, pepper powder and colcannon. Then slowly pour in the buttermilk to bind the mixture into a
biscuit dough ( do knead the dough too much).
Once the vegetables in the pot are cooked and tender, stir in the shredded ham. Wet your hands a little and shape the dough into small ping-pong sized balls. Drop them on top of the soup. Put the lid back on the pot and simmer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes with a spoon, gently turn the dough over and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Serve them large soup bowls and enjoy with a spoon, it make a complete and filling meal.
