How to Make Broccoli and Cheese Gnocchi Soup

This Broccoli Cheddar Gnocchi Soup only takes about half an hour to make, which means you can make it on weeknights after work! Come home, get the soup ready, then curl up with a big bowl of it and relax. 

How to Make this Broccoli and Cheese Soup recipe:

  1. To begin, cut the broccoli into bite-sized florets, and then blanch the broccoli (check the recipe card for details on how to do this). 
  2. Next, cook the gnocchi according to package instructions, drain, rinse, and set aside.
  3. Heat butter and oil in a dutch oven or large pot. Then add in the carrots, onion, and fennel, and cook for 4 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook another 30 seconds.
  4. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables, then cook until the mixture starts to brown. Then gradually pour in the chicken broth.
  5. Stir in the blanched broccoli, and then whisk in the wine and half-and-half. Then add in the red pepper flakes and bay leaf.
  6. Increase the heat and bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat again and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  7. Once the vegetables have softened, stir in the cooked gnocchi.
  8. Remove soup from heat and stir in the cheese.

Serve the gnocchi broccoli and cheese soup while it’s hot! I always serve it with some baguette slices for dipping. Check the recipe card below for more detailed instructions.

This soup will be best if made when you intend to eat it. However, you can easily store leftovers in the refrigerator, and reheat it another time. If you do have leftovers to reheat, bring it to just a simmer in a saucepan. Keep the heat very low, and whisk slowly to prevent the soup from separating.
