Vegan Gnocchi Soup







The warmer temps are slowly creeping in (thank goodness), but in my opinion.. there is always time for soup and salad!

I find that soups are the perfect vehicle to pack on the veggies and they are just so quick and easy. There are so many staple soups, but there are countless fun modern concepts to explore and this vegan Gnocchi Soup was one of them!

I love homemade gnocchi, but even the store bought options can work and they seamlessly bulk up a recipe and add texture. I was searching for gnocchi soup inpso and I came across one that looked so good, and ironically was designed after a Olive Garden staple lol. I have been to their restaurant a handful of times and while I was only sold on the breadsticks and salad (so good lol).. 

This soup actually sounded REALLY GOOD. 

While this soup was of course laden with heavy cream, chicken broth and chicken, I was able to substitute those ingredients without compromising the texture or flavor and the results were fab!!






What’s great about this soup, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs healthy fat and protein with the cashews, a rich texture, carrots, spinach, gnocchi, tons of flavor, can easily be made in bulk, can be as thick as you desire, perf for any season, and is just such a fun concept!




If you’re a lover of this “Olive Garden” staple or simply love all things gnocchi, you’re going to love this vegan Gnocchi Soup!!





Why this recipe is great: 






No heavy cream, chicken broth or chicken

Perf for any season

Can easily be made in bulk

    1. Typically you soak cashews overnight, but you can absolutely throw them in boiled water or 10 minutes and get the same result!

  3. Any substitute for cashews? My husband has a nut allergy.

      You can absolutely use coconut milk/cream, it will add a richness to the soup, but may over take the flavor a little.
