The original name of this recipe is Half-Hour Chicken and Leek Stew. I lopped off the beginning because it took a bit longer. But it was worth it.
I expected to love this dish from eatingwell.com and wanted leftovers, so I doubled it for three of us. I didn’t double the gnocchi because of the carbs, and I added protein in the form of four Spinach & Asiago Chicken Sausages from Sam’s Club.
This homey soup is hearty and simple. The original recipe is from damndelicious.net; I adapted the version offered by The Candid Appetite. Dicing the vegetables means the soup cooks faster, making it a good weeknight meal for busy people.
I usually have at least a few cookbooks out from the library. They inspire me, entertain me and provide me with a stockpile of recipes to try. Checking out new cookbooks is also a good way to keep up with food trends. You’d think I’d have enough recipes by now, but I can’t seem to stop. . .
