Recipe from Season 2, Episode 4 of Healthy Gourmet.


  • 1 cup water

  • 2 ounces extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 ½ tsp sea salt

  • 2/3 cup gluten free all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp grapeskin flour

  • 2 tsp xantham gum

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tbsp chives, minced

  • 2 tsp tarragon, chopped


  • 1.

    Fill a pot with salted water and bring to a simmer. Set up a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.

  • 2.

    In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water, olive oil, and 1 tsp sea salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, add the flour and xantham gum, and stir rapidly with a wooden spoon until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan. Continue stirring for 4 minutes until a thin coating of dough forms on the bottom of the pan. Transfer the dough to the mixer bowl. Add the mustard and the remaining ½ tsp salt and mix for a few seconds. With the mixer on the lowest speed add the eggs one at a time. Mix until smooth. Then add the chives and tarragon, and incorporate.

  • 3.

    Using two teaspoons, drop dollops of the dough into the pot of simmering water in batches of 6. Once the dumplings rise to the surface cook them for approximately 5 minutes. Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook the remaining dumplings.
