Directions

Whisk flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Place Black Lampong Peppercorns in a small zip top bag, seal bag, and use a rolling pin to coarsely crush peppercorns. Stir crushed peppercorns into flour mix. Use a pastry cutter or fork to “cut in” butter until mixture is crumbly and no large clumps of butter remain. Pour in buttermilk and stir with a fork until a shaggy dough comes together. Use your hands to knead the dough in the bowl until it can be formed into a ball. Transfer dough to a well-floured work surface and roll out to be 1/4-inch thick, then cut into 1-inch squares.

Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add carrots, sweet potato, and leek. Cook for about 5 min., stirring frequently. Add broth, water, and Country Onion Herb Veggie Shaker. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and add dumplings a handful at a time. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 15 min. Add broccoli and peas and simmer for 10 more min. Chop fresh herbs and use to garnish before serving.
