- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain spinach, then plunge into a bowl of ice water. Drain spinach, squeezing out any water, and finely chop.
- .In a large bowl, mix the spinach with the 1 teaspoon of salt, the bread crumbs, parmesan, ricotta, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and the egg until evenly combined. Divide the dough into 14 balls. Working with 1 ball of dough at a time, flatten the ball in the palm of your hand. Add 2 teaspoons of taleggio and wrap the dough around the cheese. Dust each ball with flour and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze dough for 45 minutes.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Working in 2 batches, add the dumplings to the water and cook until they float, about 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer dumplings to a plate. Save 1⁄3 cup pasta water.
- Meanwhile, heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high. Add dumplings and cook, turning as needed, until golden, about 6 minutes. Add the butter and sage and cook, basting the dumplings, 2 minutes longer. Transfer the dumplings to a serving platter and add the reserved pasta water and the vinegar to the skillet. Bring it to a boil and reduce the sauce by half, about 8 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the dumplings and garnish with more parmesan.
Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, including beans, is linked with a lower risk of lung, oral, esophageal, stomach and colon cancer. It’s unclear yet which components protect the most against cancer, so enjoy a variety of whole foods naturally rich in nutrients.
Eating a diet loaded with these plant-based foods, such as this tasty dish, can help you stay at a healthy weight. Fill at least two-thirds of your plate with vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans.

@ClodaghMckenna this cauliflower soup is a big warm hug. The playlist of mellow hits she made to listen to while cooking it makes her just as happy. Find both the recipe and playlist at: http://bit.ly/KerrygoldMusic
- Meal type: starters
- Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.
- Place a saucepan over a medium heat and add the two tablespoons of Kerrygold butter. Then stir in the onion, garlic, potato and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and stir occasionally until the onion is tender about five minutes.
- Remove the lid and stir in the cauliflower and stock, simmer over a medium-high heat until the potato and cauliflower are very tender, about 20 minutes.
- Next purée the soup until you reach a smooth consistency. Place back over the heat and stir in the Dubliner cheese, milk and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Meanwhile make the Dubliner cheese croutons. Mix the Dubliner cheese, Dijon mustard and melted Kerrygold butter together in a bowl. Spoon the mixture evenly between the four half slices of sourdough bread, and place in the pre-heated oven for five minutes.
- To serve, spoon the cauliflower soup into four warmed bowls and place a Dubliner cheese crouton on top of each soup.
