Vegan Chicken and Dumplings like my Grandma used to make! Fluffy clouds of dumplings, a thick and flavorful gravy, and chunks of delicious vegan chicken! This is a Southern version of chicken and dumplings done up vegan-style. 

Ingredients
To Rehydrate Nature's PRIME Nuggets:
 1 lb Nature’s Nuggets (3oz Nature’s PRIME Nuggets cooked according to package directions)
 10 cups Water
 1 tbsp Vegetable bouillon
 1 tbsp Garlic powder
 1 tbsp Onion powder
 1 tsp Salt
 1 tsp Pepper
Mirepoix:
 2 tbsp Oil for cooking, or water saute
 1 cup Onion, chopped
 ½ cup Celery, chopped
 ½ cup Carrot, chopped
Dumplings:
 1 ¾ cups Gluten-free flour mix (can use wheat flour)
 1 tbsp Flaxseed, finely ground
 1 tsp Baking powder
 ½ tsp Baking soda
 ½ tsp Salt
 ½ tsp Pepper
 2 tbsp Oil
 1 cup Plant-based milk
Gravy:
 6 cups Water
 1 tbsp Vegetable bouillon (use 1-2 tbsp vegetable bouillon, to taste)
 1 tbsp Onion powder
 1 tbsp Garlic powder
 ½ tsp Salt or to taste
 ½ tsp Pepper or to taste
 3 tbsp Corn starch
 ½ cup Plant-based milk

Instructions
To Rehydrate Nature's PRIME Nuggets:
1

Put 10 cups of water in a large, heavy-bottomed soup pot and bring to a boil. Add the bouillon, garlic and onion powder, and salt and pepper if desired. The PRIME Nuggets can also be rehydrated with plain water.

2

Add the PRIME Nuggets to the water and simmer for about 15 minutes.

3

Drain the nuggets in a colander and run cold water over them until they've cooled.

4

Press gently to remove some of the water from the nuggets and set them aside.

Mirepoix:
5

In the same large, heavy-bottomed soup pot, sauté the onion, celery, and carrot in either oil or water until tender and slightly brown, about 8 minutes.

6

Add the PRIME Nuggets to the pot and also sauté for a few minutes. Add more oil or water if necessary to prevent any sticking.

Dumplings:
7

Mix together all the dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients and stir until very well incorporated. Set aside.

Gravy:
8

To the pot, add the six cups of water, bouillon, onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper. Over medium-high heat, bring to a simmer.

9

Add the dumplings by dropping the dough by spoonfuls into the simmering liquid. The dumplings will sink and then rise to the top when cooked.

10

Once all the dumplings are added, let simmer for another two minutes.

11

Make a slurry with the corn starch and plant-based milk and add it to the pot. Let simmer until the gravy has thickened.
