  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablepsoon butter
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine optional
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 6 cups low or no sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups cooked chicken diced
  • 1 pound gnocchi
  • 1 cup carrot
  • 4 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper


  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a medium-size soup pot over medium heat. Add the celery, onion, and garlic.
  • Cook the veggies, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent. Deglaze with the white wine (optional).
  • Turn off the heat and with a whisk, whisk in the flour. When the flour is all combined, add the heated broth in a slow stream, whisking as you pour to avoid floury lumps.
  • When the broth is all incorporated, turn the heat back to medium and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
  • Add the gnocchi, carrot, and spinach and bring it back to a boil. Simmer for another 5 minutes or until the gnocchi start to float.
  • Add the cream and heat the soup through. Season with salt and pepper and serve piping hot!
