Potato Gnocchi Soup
Today we are going to make a new recipe that I have been playing with and I finally got it to where my family loves it. It’s so creamy and not watery at all. If you don’t like potato gnocchi you can leave it out and add potato chunks or any other veggie you like. Just add it in right after you saute the onions and celery.
1 C. Yellow Onion finely chopped
1 C. Celery diced small
1 TBSP. Olive Oil
1 TBSP. Minced Garlic (3 cloves)
3 1/2 C. Warm Water
6 Tsp. Chicken broth powder
1 Tsp. Celery Salt
Salt and Pepper to your taste
2 1/2 C. Cooked Chicken shredded
16 oz Package of Potato Gnocchi
5 TBSP. Butter
6 TBSP. Flour
2 C. Milk
1/3 C. Heavy Cream
2 C. Fresh Spinach chopped big
Shredded Parmesan Cheese for topping
Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or saucepan over medium high heat and then add the onions and celery. Saute for about 7 minutes.
Now add the garlic and saute for 2 more minutes.
Next mix the water and the broth powder together really well and make sure you get out all the clumps. You can use already made chicken broth if you would like.
Now add the broth to the saucepan.
Next add your celery salt, pepper and salt. Mix well, bring it to a boil then reduce heat to medium low and cover. Simmer for about 15 minutes or till veggies are nice and tender.
While you’re waiting for it to simmer start melting your butter in a small saucepan.
Now add your flour and whisk constantly for a minute.
It will look like this.
Keep whisking and pour in your milk. Whisk fast to get rid of all the lumps. Don’t stop whisking until it comes to a light boil. Now pour in your heavy cream and keep whisking.
Once it becomes thick remove it from the heat and set to the side.
Now add your potato gnocchi to the broth, mix and cover. Simmer for the recommended time on the package. I did 7 minutes.
Next add the milk mixture to the broth and stir well.
Now add in your shredded chicken and mix.
Next add your spinach and stir well.
Cook a few minutes until the spinach has wilted.
Now serve hot in a bowl and top with shredded Parmesan cheese.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did. Don’t forget to make some fresh bread to dunk in it. Search my recipes for homemade bread.

I’m Pagan/Wiccan and have been practicing over 10 years now. I always knew I was different but didn’t figure it out till 2008, that’s when I came out of the broom closet. I’m a Witch and I’m proud of it. When I say different I mean I just didn’t fit in with what others did or believed in. I’m sure you all totally understand that feeling. Now I know though I’m not different, I’m me and there are so many others like me.
I hold rituals at my house with my circle for each Sabbat and we do a lot of witch crafts together. I love to do all types of crafts not just witchy like I make dream catchers, wood burn, make soaps and bath salts. I love to cross stitch and make latch hook rugs. I have a small page on Facebook that I sell my goodies. You can FIND THEM HERE at Pixiewitchcorner.
I love to cook and bake. My mother was a great cook & I picked up her talent. I love to make my own fun recipes and add some magick to them. I mean cooking is magickal right so why not add a little extra to it. I started a Kitchen Witch Group on Facebook over 4 years ago. If your on FB come check it out.
I love to spend my time with my hubby & boys. We love to be out in nature especially the beach & the forest. I belong in the forest, I guess all pixie’s do hee hee. My friends call me Pixie due to my size I’m 5’1 and barely 100 pounds with really long red and silver hair hee hee.
I collect stones like hag stones, labradorite, amethysts, quartz etc… I also collect witch statues, Goddess statues, owls, crows and the Moon. Oh & sea glass I cant forget that. Do tattoos count? If so I have over a 100 of them I’m about 80% covered.
Another hobby is photography. I love taking pictures of nature such as flowers, animals, trees, mountains, the ocean and my favorite of all the Moon.
I love to unwind two ways one is with a great book, usually witchy or paranormal ones catch my attention the most. I do read & research a lot about the human body and diseases due to my families rare health issues. The other is going outside under the stars and Moon. What a great way to end the day looking up at the dark beautiful sky.
That’s pretty much it, you see what you get hee hee. You either love me or hate me. Hopefully you all will love me haha.
