Galushki determines soup taste

The main component in this soup is clearly galushki. So the better you make the dough, the more delicious your soup will taste later.

Even though there are galushki recipes with a firm dough, I make it gooey for the soup. Because if the dough is not too firm, the flour dumplings taste more delicate after cooking.

To make the dough the right consistency in the process, you should add flour in batches to the other ingredients. The amount of flour specified in the recipe can always vary. It depends, among other things, on the size of the eggs. Also, different types of flour absorb liquid differently.

Season to taste with herbs and spices

You can stir fresh chopped herbs into the dough, including parsley or dill. You can also refine it with different spices. For example, if you mix in some turmeric powder**, your flour dumplings will get a nice yellow color.

I seasoned the soup itself only with bay leaves**, salt and black pepper. But again, you can experiment with herbs and spices of your choice to flavor the galushki soup.

How to serve and store galushki soup?

The galushki soup is filling and makes an ideal main dish for lunch or dinner. Serve it warm. You can serve it with fresh herbs, such as dill or parsley.

Keep the flour dumpling soup, which has not been consumed immediately after cooking and has cooled down, in a saucepan with the lid on in the refrigerator.

Then, before serving, heat only the portion on the stove that will be eaten, not the entire soup in the saucepan. Otherwise, the soup could go bad quickly if you reheat it several times.
