How to Make Gnocchi, Greens & Chickpeas in Spicy Tomato Broth


  1. In a large saucepan, cook gnocchi according to package directions in just enough vegetable broth to cover--this generally only takes a couple minutes, max.
  2. Drain, reserving broth. Heat olive oil oil in a NONSTICK skillet,and brown gnocchi lightly. Last minute or two of cooking (not earlier!), add garlic.
  3. Return gnocchi, broth, garlic and oil to saucepan. Add remaining ingredients, plus a little more veggie broth if needed or desired (i.e., if you want soup.) Simmer till greens are tender but not overcooked. Adjust seasonings and serve in bowls.
