Guest Post: Mushroom Gnocchi Soup

We have a guest in the kitchen! Louisa of Living Lou is sharing her delicious recipe for Mushroom Gnocchi Soup.

I’m a huge fan of soups. On most Sunday afternoons you’ll find a big pot of soup on my stove. During the hot days of summer, I’ll often opt to make something in my slow cooker or pressure cooker so that it won’t heat up my kitchen, but we’ve been having a lot of cool and rainy days recently, so this recipe has been on repeat.

This is a creamy mushroom and gnocchi soup with bacon and potatoes. There is no cream in the soup itself, its thickness comes from olive oil and flour to create a thickening agent, similar to a roux. It is hearty and full of flavour, and pretty quick to make! If you wanted to make it vegetarian, you could easily leave out the bacon and swap the chicken broth for water or vegetable broth.
