This is Gluten-Free if you use a GF
flour blend for the dumplings.

Ingredients Honestly, I never measure any of this so you've just got to try. If you've have a traditional buttesuppe before you know what you're aiming for. 1 L of chicken stock a few potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks you could eat 1 whole yellow onion, peeled and NOT chopped up (cut the ends off) some carrots chopped into chunks some celery chopped into chunks 1/4 to 1/3 cup of butter enough extra water, you'll need to keep adding it bit by bit, so as to keep it soupy. a few bay leaves summer savory and parsley or other green herbs you like pepper corns and some black pepper I've seen variations that include interesting herbs and spices such as nutmeg (!) maybe some salt but usually the chicken stock is salty already, and butter probably is too. Put it all in a pot and add water until you have enough to cook the potatoes properly. Bring it to a boil and then simmer it until it's done. Probably a couple of hours at least. There's some kind of food chemistry transformation that happens to the starch and the fat in the butter at some point. If you want to add the "dumplings", as we called them, make them as follows. one or two eggs, beaten (GF)flour to make a stiff dough using the egg(s), 1 to 2 cups (?) added gradually is probably best you can always add a bit of water if you need to You can season the dough with some ground black pepper and paprika Work the dough a bit with your hands and then you've got two options. Either, roll it flat and cut ribbon noodles to add to the soup or break of small chunks or cut them off so that you get odd blob noodles (dumplings!) I like the odd dumplings, not the noodles. Cook until it's done. It's best eaten when prepared but you can refrigerate it. However, it will turn into a solid gelatinous mass when cooled. Don't be repulsed. It will be delicious when heated again. Freezing does something weird to the potatoes. Eat it with sour cream dolloped in the bowl.
