On a blustery autumn day, this creamy soup filled to the brim with crimini mushrooms, roasted chicken and potato gnocchi certainly hit the spot. Be sure and start with a nice rich chicken stock, it will make all the difference! If you’ve got the time, get a rotisserie chicken, take off the meat and set aside for later and simmer the carcass in a couple quarts of water for at least an hour, if not two.
In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Then add onion and celery. Saute until celery is mostly tender. Add mushrooms, garlic, basil, pepper and salt. Cook until mushrooms are tender. Add chicken stock, chicken and gnocchi.
Boil for a few minutes until gnocchi is cooked through and floats to top (use the package instructions for a guideline on cook time).
In a small bowl whisk the cornstarch into the half-and-half and add to pot. Stir, bringing back to a boil, then simmer for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
Taste and salt to your liking, voila!
This is a vibrant soup with bright and fresh flavors. Mint and peas is a classic combination. Accompanied with the natural sweetness of roasted garlic and carrots and a kiss of spices, this elegant dish is a definite winner. Serve with fresh crusty ciabatta or croutons. This recipe serves 4 to 5.
