- Cut up the veggies. Add the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and carrots to your pot. Cook with a small amount of veggie broth to prevent sticking.
- Once the onions are translucent and carrots are soft, add the potatoes and seasonings.
- Add in the veggie broth. Reserve 1 cup. Bring to a boil.
- Meanwhile, make the rue by melting the butter and stirring the flour in a saucepan. Stir until combined.
- Add in 1 cup of the coconut milk and the reserved broth. Stir until well combined and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.

Storage and reheating
To store the soup, add it to an air-tight container. Add it to the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat the soup, you can warm it up in the microwave or over the stovetop.
Be sure to use a microwave-safe container if you’re reheating it in the microwave. Add the soup to the saucepan to reheat it over the stovetop.
Yes! Add all of the ingredients to the crockpot except for the rue and dumplings. You’ll want to prepare the dumplings about an hour before serving. Create the rue as instructed and stir it in.
I haven’t tried to make this gluten-free. Instead of making a rue, you’ll want to use cornstarch. As for the dumplings you can substitute the ap flour with gluten-free flour.
Yes! Use as many different vegetables as you’d like. Just make sure there’s still room for the dumplings. Veggies you could add are peas, corn, celery, or leeks. I don’t recommend using broccoli as it can become overcooked.
