Hearty Root Vegetable Soup with Gnocchi


This soup hits just the right note. It’s hearty (as its name suggests) without being too filling and has a rich and meaty flavor. The potato gnocchi are a fun addition and turn this vegetable soup into a Yom Tov treat.


Prepare the Soup

1. Heat oil in a large stockpot. Add onion, garlic, carrots, and celery. Cover and saute for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Place the turkey necks in a mesh bag and add to the pot along with eight to 10 cups water.
3. Add potatoes, salt, pepper, paprika, and tarragon and bring to a boil.
4. Let simmer for an hour until all the vegetables are fork tender.
5. Remove the mesh bag and let the soup cool a bit. If desired, pulse a few times with an immersion blender to thicken.
6. Before serving, bring soup to a boil. Add peas and gnocchi and let cook for three to five minutes. If you’re serving this at your Yom Tov meal, cook peas and gnocchi only just before serving, if possible.

Prepare the Breadstick Braids

1. To make the breadsticks, cut thin, long strips of puff pastry dough. Twist two together and pinch the ends so they stick.
2. Brush with oil and season with your favorite spices.
3. Bake on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes until golden brown. Serve with soup.
