White Bean Gnocchi Soup
This White Bean Gnocchi Soup is comforting, simple & delicious. Filled with veggies, herbs and mini gnocchi. The best vegan soup!
I have been on a serious soup kick the last couple months. There are just so many combinations of flavors and nothing is better than a bowl of warm soup when it is cold out. This soup comes together super quickly, is veggie-packed and super filling. Make a batch and eat it all week!
Let’s Talk Gnocchi
Before we get into how to make this soup, I wanted to talk about the gnocchi I used. I always buy my gnocchi pre-made (it’s super easy to find vegan-friendly options). But when I came across MINI GNOCCHI, I knew I needed to make them into a soup. They are super cute and perfectly bite-sized for a spoonful of soup.
If you can’t find these mini gnocchi, you can totally use the regular size! Just note that no matter what size of gnocchi you use, as the soup sits (aka leftovers), the gnocchi will continue to absorb the broth. You have a couple of options – either add extra broth to the leftovers OR cook the gnocchi separately and add it to each bowl as you eat!
How to Make the Soup
Start out by heating some olive oil in a stock pot. Add in the onions, garlic, celery, carrots and dry seasonings. Let the veggies cook down for 5 minutes – you want them to be slightly tender and fragrant.
Pour in the broth (I used vegan chicken broth) and a can of white beans. Bring this to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. This will allow the veggies to fully cook.
Pour in a cup of non-dairy milk & the gnocchi and simmer for another 10 minutes. Right before serving, stir in a couple of handfuls of spinach (or sub kale) and let it cook until it is just wilted.
Serve it Up
When it comes to serving, I like adding fresh basil or parsley and a side of garlic toast. Because is there anything more comforting than garlic toast with soup? I think not. To make the garlic toast, just cut up a baguette, spread some vegan butter on each slice and sprinkle with garlic powder, garlic salt & dried parsley. Pop these in the oven, or air fryer, for about 10 minutes. It’s ok if the bread dries out a bit, that will make it perfect for dipping!
From all of the veggies, to the tender gnocchi to the crispy garlic toast…this vegan soup is a must make!

Simple, yet absolutely divine and comforting. I had no celery so substituted with leek, but that was the only tweak. My 13-year-old son – a soup-lover – had 3 servings and enjoyed it to the last spoon.
This was fabulous. Tweaked proportions of veggies so that we would have leftovers for our family of four, doubled the beans, used kale and added in step two. With garlic toasts, a real weeknight winner.
So glad you liked it Kim! Love that you were able to adapt it!
Definitely will make this again! I love gnocchi and soup… combined… magical things happen.
This soup is so good . Did not have spinach but used kale instead . Very good. This is a soup to keep
Thanks Kerstin! Kale sounds like the perfect swap!
This is such a soothing soup! It reminded us of a rich potato soup or a white chili, but even better. This recipe goes at the top of my soup file!
Yayyyy! So glad you enjoyed it!
