To prepare the stew, finely chop the leek, crush the garlic cloves and slice the celery.
Heat 160ml of water until hot. Place the yeast in a jug and add the hot water. Set aside.
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a saucepan placed over high heat and sauté the leek, garlic and celery for 2 minutes. Add the turmeric, 1 tsp salt and miso. Add the chickpeas then pour in the yeast water, leaving the sediment behind.
Add 1L water and bring to a gentle simmer.
To make the dumplings, mix the chickpea flour, baking powder, paprika and the rest of the salt in a large bowl. Add the soya yoghurt (or plain yoghurt) and enough water to form a soft sticky dough. Wet your hands then shape the dough into 8-10 balls.
Drop the balls into the simmering stew and cover with a lid. Allow the dumplings to cook for 10 minutes until puffed.
Serve the stew and dumplings with extra yoghurt garnished with a handful of chopped parsley.
