  • Food processor
  • Hand mixer


  • 8.8 ounces cooked beets
  • 8 ounces plant-based ricotta cheese
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 cup plant-based Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup fresh dill minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional, for serving:


Prepare the dumpling filling:

  • Blend the cooked beets in a food processor with ¼ cup water until a smooth puree forms.
  • Combine the beet puree, plant-based ricotta, and flour in a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer or wooden spoon until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Boil the dumplings:

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and then reduce the heat to a low boil. Next, use a tablespoon and scoop the mixture. Run the spoon alongside the inside of the bowl to create a quenelle shape.
  • Place your spoon directly into the boiling water and shake lightly to release the dumpling into the water.
  • Continue on until you have five dumplings in the water. As they begin to float, remove them from the pot and transfer them to a plate.

Prepare the Greek yogurt:

  • Once all the dumplings have been cooked, mix together plant-based Greek yogurt and dill in a bowl and add a splash or two of water to thin it out slightly. Taste and season with salt.

To serve:

  • Divide the Greek yogurt between bowls and place the dumplings on top. Garnish with extra virgin olive oil and chili flakes, if you like. Enjoy!
