Simmer until peas and vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes to an hour. Add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Add parsley, salt and pepper. If dumplings are used, they may be added to the soup pot at this point or may be placed in individual serving bowls and the soup ladled over them.
To make the dumplings: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until browned. This soup freezes well. Dumplings may be frozen separately or in the soup.
