SOUP WITH DUMPLINGS

I make this soup all the time.  My children simply love this great soup.  I believe your newly adopted little one will be very thankful for this wonderful, flavorful soup.

1 bunch fresh spinach
1 lb of beef stew meat
1 onion
1 bunch fresh watercress
3 to 4 potatoes
3 to 4 carrots
3cloves garlic
1/2 -1 teaspoon sea salt
 32ozs can of beef broth

Cut up the stew meat into bite size pieces
add some oil to the pot
chop onion and garlic
saute the meat onion/garlic
add the sea salt
add  half the broth, let simmer slowly  until meat is tender
add chopped carrots, potatoes
remove stems from spinach and watercress, chop into small pieces
add the spinach and watercress, let simmer until carrots and potatoes are cooked
TO MAKE DUMPLINGS:
2 cups  all purpose white flour
add a pinch of salt
add enough water to make a sticky paste
form  a  small round clump, add each clump to soup
add   the remaining broth plus a cup of water, let simmer until dumplings are completely cooked

Some Haitians add green plantains, but I prefer the soup without them.
You can also substitute the beef for chicken
