The other day my dear friend became ill and, naturally, I felt the need to make soup for him. I threw together some stuff together and it turned out pretty well. Today I share with you my newest creation, Chicken and Gnocchi Soup.

Ingredients

1 Recipe of Basic Gnocchi (recipe here or you can use store-bought)
4-6 c of vegetable or chicken stock (depending on how broth-y you want it)
2 tbsp butter
1/2 c chopped celery
1/2 c chopped carrots
1/4 c chopped leeks
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
2 tbsp flour (optional. just to thicken the soup.)
1-2 c cooked chicken
1/2 c sweet corn
1 in fresh rosemary (optional. +/-)
salt & black pepper to taste

Because this is a soup, these are all approximate measurements. Adjust to your liking.

Method

This is super easy:

  1. Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan or stock pot. Saute the vegetables (except the corn).
  2. Add the stock. Bring up to heat.
  3. Once the soup is boiling, mix the flour with about equal parts of water and make a paste. Add it to the boiling soup. This thickens it up just slightly and makes for a more hearty feeling soup in the end.
  4. Add the chicken and corn. From this point, you dont necessarily want the soup to simmer very long. Chicken that is boiled too long gets tough and nasty.
  5. Let the chicken chillax in the soup for a few minutes to heat up.
  6. Add the rosemary. Rosemary will lose flavor if it is cooks too long.
  1. Add the salt and pepper to get the taste right.

Serve! Thats it.
