   transparent.  Add the garlic, leeks, carrot & mushrooms & cook
   gently for 4 to 5 minutes.  Stir in the paprika, pepper & flour.

   & bring back to a boil.

   20-25 minutes very gently to prevent burning.  Sprinkle generously
   with parsley before serving.

   it resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Stir in parsley.  Add just enough liquid
   to make a firm dough.  Divide into 8 pieces & shape into dumplings.
   Serves 4 to 6.
