  1. GNOCCHI 1 cup Potato Buds 3/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/4 scant teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 cup boiling water 1 egg yolk 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/2 cup shredded carrot 1/4 cup diced onion 1/4 cup chopped celery 1 teaspoon minced garlic 2 tablespoons cornstarch 4 cups chicken broth 4 cups water 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 1/2 cups half-and-half 1 roasted chicken with meat removed and chopped (about 1 pound meat) 2 cups chopped fresh spinach 1. Make the gnocchi by mixing the Potato Buds with the salt and nutmeg. Stir in the boiling water and continue mixing until no dry flakes remain. Stir in the egg yolk until the mashed potato mixture has an even pale yellow color throughout.

  2. Stir in the flour and knead for about a minute with your hands.

  3. Use a 1/2 teaspoon to measure out small portions of the dough. Using fl oured hands, roll the small dough portion around between the palms of your hands, making a ball, then press each ball down onto fl oured wax paper, making a small disk. When all the gnocchi is made, you can begin to make the soup.

  4. Heat up the oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the carrot, onion, celery, and garlic and saute for 3 minutes. Whisk the cornstarch into the chicken broth and add to the vegetables along with the water. When the mixture begins to boil, add the gnocchi. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the half-and-half and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the soup begins to thicken. Add the chicken and spinach and simmer for another 10 minutes, or until the soup has thickened and the spinach is tender. • MAKES 8 CUPS.
