Step 1

Heat oil in soup pot over medium heat. Saute onion, celery, and carrots for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add broth, water, chicken, pepper, thyme, and bay leaf. Stir and reduce heat to low. Cover pot partially with lid, and simmer soup for about 20 minutes.

While soup simmers, mix dumpling ingredients in a bowl. Shape mixture into spoon-sized dumplings. Add a little water or flour to thin or thicken mixture. One by one, drop dumplings into soup. Cover pot and let dumplings cook for 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove bay leaf. Stir in spinach. Simmer the soup over low heat for 3 minutes and serve.
