Ingredients

¼ cup (50mL)
extra virgin olive oil (divided)
¼ cup (50 mL)
white onion, chopped
1
garlic clove, ground
2 cups (500 mL)
squash pulp
a sprig of thyme leaves
1 litre
3.25 % milk
¼ cup (50mL)
unsalted butter
2 cans (85 g each)
Flaked Light Tuna-Tomato & Onion
¼ cup (50mL)
goat cheese
1
juice from a lemon
salt and black pepper, to taste
12
dumpling dough sheets, rounded or squared
1
egg yolk, beaten
1 pinch
ground nutmeg

Preparation

  1. In a saucepan, on medium-high heat, add olive oil, onion, garlic, squash and thyme. Cook about 5 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to a minimum, add milk and cook for about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Next, blend this soup mixture on high speed. Add salt and pepper according to your preference, then add the butter slowly to the blended soup. Continue to blend on high speed. Set aside. (This can be done the day before and refrigerated.)
  4. In a small bowl, combine tuna, goat cheese, lemon juice, a dash of olive oil and seasoning.
  5. Prepare dumplings by scooping the tuna filling in the center of each dough sheet, then wet the ends with egg yolk and folded opposite ends into a half circle or triangle (depending on the dumpling shape) and seal ends. Set aside.
  6. In a deep fryer, fry dumplings at 350 F for about 2-3 minutes, turning often for a golden colour. Drain on kitchen paper.
  7. Pour heated squash soup in a bowl and arrange 3 dumplings on top of the soup. Serve hot.

TIP:

  • Soup and dumplings can be frozen.
  • Dumplings can be served as a cocktail.
