Turkey Gnocchi Soup

Turkey Gnocchi Soup - The use of turkey sausage instead of pork sausage makes this soup leaner, while the addition of kale makes this a high-fiber food. If you’ve never had gnocchi before, it’s a soft, doughy dumpling that acts as a potato pillow, complementing the surrounding ingredients, like the turkey sausage.

Turkey Gnocchi Soup


  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 jarred roasted red bell pepper, drained and diced
  • 1 pound packaged potato gnocchi
  • 3 cups baby kale, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. In a large pot, cook the turkey sausage and the onion over medium-high heat until the sausage is browned, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Drain the excess grease from the pan.
  2. Add the broth and the roasted red pepper. Bring to a simmer.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the gnocchi. Cook for 10 twinkles.
  4. Stir in the kale, cream, nutmeg, swab, and black pepper. Bring to a poach and cook until the kale starts to wilt and the haze is hotted through.
  5. Ladle into bowls and serve topped with Parmesan.
