Tip: You can achieve excellent soups outside of the canner by slow-cooking it. You can read more in the slow cooker tests .

Gnocchi and nocchi are also a tasty addition to soup, which may seem a little more laborious, but it is actually a slightly thicker mass than dripping and also prepared from egg and flour.

We can also use fine breadcrumbs instead of flour.

Dumplings can also be used as a preserve for soup. Their preparation is not complicated either. If you want to be inspired, use our tips for soup dumplings .
