Gnocchi Soup

My kids love this one and they always call it "Pinocchio Soup." This recipe is not gluten free - gnocchi contains wheat. Gnocchi is an Italian pasta made with potatoes inside. You can find them at most groceries stores in the Italian or pasta section.

1 small finely diced onion
1 tsp garlic
1/3 cup earth balance
1 TB brown rice or wheat flour
2 cups vegetable broth
2 TB nutritional yeast
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
fresh ground pepper
sea salt
1-2 cups gnocchi
2 cups almond milk
2 cups fresh spinach - or 1 pkg frozen spinach
fresh or dried basil

In a large pot saute onion and garlic in earth balance, stir in flour until paste is formed. Stir in vegetable broth and nutritional yeast. Add gnocchi and parsley and let simmer for a few minutes to cook gnocchi through. Add almond milk, salt, pepper, parsley flakes, spinach and basil.
