  • 1 cup, frozen Cooked Kale (from Frozen)
  • 1 cup Ricotta Cheese (Whole Milk)
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese (Grated)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 11 tbsp Soy Flour (Full Fat)
  • 2 large Egg (Whole)
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 4 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick


  1. In a large bowl, mix kale, ricotta cheese, ½ cup of the Parmesan, eggs, salt, baking powder, and 3 tablespoons soy flour until mixture resembles a thick, slightly stiff batter. Place remaining soy flour in a shallow dish.
  2. Dip your hands in soy flour and form ricotta mixture into 1 balls. Roll them lightly in soy flour to coat evenly. Transfer to a tray lightly dusted with soy flour (Dumplings may be made ahead to this point and frozen).
  3. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter a shallow baking dish. Bring a medium saucepan of lightly salted water to a simmer. Cook dumplings, 8 or 9 at a time, 2 to 3 minutes, until they float to the surface of the water. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to buttered dish.
  4. In a small saucepan melt butter with sage; cook until butter turns a light brown, about 3 minutes. Drizzle dumplings with sage butter. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Bake 10 minutes, until lightly browned.
