Paprika-Spiced Cauliflower Soup

I was looking for something to do with some cauliflower and stumbled across this simple soup recipe from 

Paprika-Spiced Cauliflower Soup

1/3 cup flour 
½ tsp. kosher salt 
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed and chilled 
1 egg 
1 ½ tbsp. Hungarian hot paprika 
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped 
6 cups vegetable stock 
1 small head cauliflower, large stem removed, cut into florets 
1 medium carrot, peeled and finely chopped 
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley, stemmed and finely chopped

In a bowl, stir together flour and salt. Add in 2 tbsp. butter and using your fingers, rub into flour until pea-size crumbles. Add egg, and stir until dough forms. Refrigerate until ready to use.


Heat remaining butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add in the paprika and onion, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes.


Add vegetable stock, cauliflower, and carrot. Season with salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are cooked but still hold their form, about 15 minutes. 


Using a small spoon, portion out and drop all dumpling dough into simmering soup. Boil for a couple more minutes until the dumplings are cooked.

Top with parsley.
