Paleo Chicken and Sweet Potato Gnocchi Soup

8 Oct

Yes, you’ve seen this recipe before!  This time with homemade sweet potato gnocchi instead of Cappello’s gnocchi.

Paleo chicken and sweet potato gnocchi soup

Ingredients:

1 batch paleo sweet potato gnocchi (recipe here)

2-3 tbl. ghee or extra virgin olive oil

3-4 chicken breasts, diced

1 large onion, diced

One pound carrots, shredded

6-8 celery stalks, thinly sliced

4 cloves garlic, minced

6-8 cups organic low sodium chicken broth

22oz So Delicous culinary coconut milk (it isn’t as coconut-ty as other brands)

3-4 cups baby spinach, washed

8 sprigs fresh thyme, thyme leaves only

Kosher salt

Pepper

Method:

Prepare the gnocchi dough as described.  Since these are going in a soup, I made 1/2 tbl size gnocchi instead of 1 tbl. size.  In a large pot over medium high heat, heat 1 tbl. ghee and 1 tbl. olive oil.  Season chicken liberally with salt and pepper.  When ghee/oil is hot add chicken, onion, celery, carrot, and garlic to the pot.  Sauté until chicken is no longer pink.   Add chicken broth (start with 6 cups, add more at the end if you’d like the soup thinner) and thyme leaves.  Bring soup to a boil and add gnocchi.  Gnocchi will float when done. Reduce heat, stir in coconut milk, spinach, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
