  • Summary

    Slow Cooker Creamy Gnocchi Sausage Kale Soup is comfort in a bowl! Almost like a Zuppa Toscana with low fat options and full fat flavours!

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound 500 grams ground hot Italian sausage, browned (or any other sausage -- chicken, pork, beef or turkey)
    • 1 onion, peeled and diced
    • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
    • 2 celery sticks, diced
    • 5 cloves garlic (or 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic)
    • 4 cups good-quality chicken broth
    • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    • 2 teaspoons vegetable stock powder, like Vegeta, (or chicken/beef bouillon powder — chicken adds better flavour)
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt, (adjust to your tastes)
    • 1/3 teaspoon cracked black pepper, (adjust to your tastes)
    • 600 ml (2 1/3 cups) evaporated milk or half and half, (or reduced fat cream -- full fat may also be used if not watching calorie intake)
    • 3 heaping tablespoons cornstarch mixed and dissolved well in 2 cups of milk, (I use 2% milk)
    • 1 pound (500 grams) fresh gnocchi (found in the fridge section of your supermarket)
    • 4 cups shredded kale leaves, stems removed (or baby spinach leaves),
    • extra salt and pepper, to taste
    • optional toppings: freshly grated Parmesan cheese and crispy bacon
