  1. This is my favourite soup of all time. It is now my soup. When my family is hungry I’ll say “I’ll make the soup” and it will be this soup. I’m distraught that there aren’t more comments on this delicious post!

      Hi Amy! I’m so glad you and you’re family like the soup!

  2. I agree with Amy, this soup is delicious and there should more people on here raving about it! It is super easy to make and perfect for my toddler with food allergies and husband who loves comfort food!

  3. This soup is wonderful. My family loves veggie soup. we are trying to go completely gluten and dairy free, so had to make small alterations but I love it and I love potato gnocchi :). Thank you for giving our family a new favorite.

  4. This recipe turned out so well! I didn’t have any gnocchi, so I used wide egg noodles instead. As a result, I needed to add an extra three tablespoons of flour to the broth to get the same consistency as that of the picture. This was so good! It’s now in the regular recipe rotation at our house 🙂
