Turn off heat for 20 minutes until dumplings are done on the inside.
Place dumplings on a serving plate and serve hot.

Mushroom Gravy:

Add thyme and other herbs and spices to taste.

Red Beet Salad:
Coarsely grate beets.
Add other ingredients as listed, folding them gently into salad.
This salad tastes better if it has been refrigerated for several hours.
