  4. Wait until dumplings emerge, reduce heat, cook for 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon (skimmer).

If you did not add stevia to dough, you may sprinkle dumplings with xylitol (if you like sweets like me 🙂



For this recipe, I’ve used unsalted homemade dry cottage cheese (made from organic whole milk), (I’ll post this recipe later). For this reason, I could not find exact nutritional information for this entire recipe, that would be very benefitial for Ketogenic dieters.

For those not on Ketogenic diet, you may use 3 tbsp of white flour instead of arrowroot and coconut flours combined.
