This is my own house take on the classic Olive Garden chicken gnocchi soup!
It’s every bit creamy and flavorful, but, it’s also made low carb with trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi.
2 tbsp olive oil
3 carrots, peeled and diced
3 celery stalks, diced
1/2 white or yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups chicken, cooked and diced (rotisserie, leftovers, anything will do!)
2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1 quart / 4 cups chicken stock
1 bag Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi
1 cup half and half
2 large handfuls of fresh spinach
Parmesan cheese (for topping)
- Don’t leave the gnocchi simmering longer than needed, it can loose its shape and become a bit gummy.
- If you’re in a pinch for certain ingredients like fresh herbs, dried works just as well just add a little less.
- Any kind of greens, or no greens at all will work at the end of the recipe.
