|¼||tsp. freshly ground white pepper|

Culinate editor’s notes: This recipe makes quite a large quantity of dumplings for a comparatively scanty amount of broth. Use 1½ or even 2 quarts of chicken broth, if you like. To save time, you can poach the dumplings directly in the broth; the resulting liquid won’t be as clear, but it’s just as delicious. You can also save time by using a 10-ounce package of frozen spinach in place of the fresh.
