Diet types: Dialysis Diabetes

Recipe submitted by DaVita renal dietitian Miriam from Arizona.
Portions: 7     Serving size: 1-1/4 cups

Ingredients
6 cups water
1 pound lamb or mutton stew meat
1 cup onion, coarsely chopped
2 cups zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced into 1/2 slices
one 3-ounce can green chilies or 2 to 3 roasted Hatch chilies
2 cups all-purpose white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
warm water to form ball of dough

Preparation
Measure water and put in a stew pot.
Trim fat from meat and cut into bite-size pieces. Add meat and bones to water. Set on stove over medium heat.
Add onion, zucchini and chilies to stew.
Once the stew has come to a low boil, turn heat to low and let simmer for at least 1 hour.
While stew is cooking, mix flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.
Knead in warm water to dry ingredients to form a soft ball of dough.
Cover dough and let it rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
After cooking stew for 1 hour, shape an approximately 2-1/2 dough ball into a flat round. (It does not need to be perfect or flat).
Tear off penny-sized pieces of dough and drop them into the stew.
Continue to shape 2-1/2 dough ball into a flat round and tear off penny-sized pieces of dough and drop in stew until all dough is in stew.
Cook dumplings in the stew for an additional 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy.
