  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth (32 ounces)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the broth, chicken, and thyme, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the gnocchi, spinach, and half-and-half, and cook until the gnocchi is cooked through and the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve immediately.
