Servings: 6 servings
- 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!
