Low Carb Konjac Dumplings

Low Carb Konjac Dumplings


One of the best low-carb chicken and dumplings recipes there is 

  Total Time: 45 Min 

  Yield: Serves 12 Medium dumplings


  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup +2 tbl. water
  • 1 extra large or jumbo egg, beaten

How to Make It:

Step 1:


Beat the egg in a small bowl with a fork.  Add the water and beat until well blended. 

Step 2:


In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients well. 

Step 3:


Slowly sprinkle the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring with a fork or whisk.  Switching to a rubber spatula, stir and begin to fold the slowly thickening mixture over and over itself until it is a contiguous batter and eventually turns into a thick, almost dry dough. 

Step 4:


Using a teaspoon, dip 3/4″-1″ dollops of the dough into your palm.  This step is important:  roll them gently in your palms into a ball shape.  Set the balls on my counter or a silicone sheet until all are made.  If you just drop them directly into the broth from the spoon without rolling, they tend to fall apart in the broth during cooking.  Or using your hands, roll the dough into ropes on plastic wrap and cut into short lengths for gnocchi, if that’s your pleasure.

Step 5:


Have your soup/broth boiling.  Drop the round dumplings/gnocchi into slowly simmering broth and immediately turn fire medium-low so it will only gently simmer.  This is important, as these are a bit delicate.

Step 6:

Cover with tight lid.  From the time you cover the pot, set timer for exactly 10 minutes for dumplings (8 minutes for smaller gnocchi).   Don't lift the lid or disturb the pot during cooking.
