  • 1 tsp SOOC Tuscan Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley

  • 5 cups Chicken Broth

Products used: Garlic Medley Sea Salt , Tuscan Herb Olive Oil , Tuscan Seasoning

Instructions

  • In a large dutch oven, heat the Tuscan Herb Olive Oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrots. Cook until slightly tender, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add the Tuscan Seasoning, parsley, Garlic Medley Sea Salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and garlic. Stir together and continue to cook until the garlic becomes fragrant, another 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour in your chicken broth and add the chicken thighs. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer. Cover the pot and cook for 15 minutes until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165℉. Remove the chicken from the pot, and shred.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and cornstarch and add to the soup with the cream cheese and gnocchi. Return to a simmer and cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring to break up the cream cheese.
  • Stir in the kale and the parmesan. Season with additional Garlic Medley Sea Salt and black pepper to taste. Serve!
