INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prepare the vegetables
Peel and dice the carrot. Dice the celery. Peel and dice the onion. Peel and mince the garlic. Trim the oyster mushrooms by removing just the tough ends, about ½ inch. Pull the mushrooms apart. Halve the green beans.
2
Cook the mushrooms
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat with 2 tbsp vegetable oil. Add just 3 tbsp flour to a large plate with a pinch of pepper and toss the mushroom pieces in it. Once the oil is hot, add the mushrooms in a single layer and cook until lightly browned and crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the crispy mushrooms to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt.
3
Make the sauce
Once the mushrooms are finished, reduce the heat to medium (no need to wipe the skillet clean) and add the diced carrot, celery, onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the bouillon, coconut milk, dried thyme, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook until slightly thickened, about 4 to 6 minutes.
4
Make the dumplings
In a large bowl, combine the remaining flour, baking soda, and ¼ cup water. Mix with a fork until well combined, and drop the dumpling mixture into the simmering sauce by the heaping spoonful. Simmer until the dumplings are firm, about 4 to 5 minutes.
5
Add the green beans
Add the halved green beans and butter to the chick’n and dumplings and stir gently. Cook until crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
6
Serve
Scoop the chick’n and dumplings into large shallow bowls and top with crispy oyster mushrooms. Dig in!
