A vegan version of it's traditional non-vegan comfort-food counterpart, Chicken & Dumplings.  This is an award-winning recipe and I have received many, many compliments on it over the years.  You may use commercially available chicken style seitan or you can make your own  (http://www.instructables.com/id/Tender-Seitan-Slices-In-Herbed-Gravy/).

Turn the heat up again and bring the soup to a boil. Drop the dumpling dough from a table spoon into the pot. Allow the mixture to return to a boil. Cover & reduce heat (DON'T lift cover!) Simmer for 12-15 minutes, and serve hot.
Those dumplings look so good! I've only had cheap versions of chickin and dumplings! This looks so much better :)
