Crispy roasted Gnocchi with Garlic Mushrooms (vegan)

Hi my dears, today I want to share a simple and delicious recipe for Crispy Roasted Vegan Gnocchi (potato dumplings) that is definitely one of my absolute favorite dishes. I make this easy recipe so often and it never gets boring.

For any reason, some people think Gnocchi are noodles, but actually, they are small potato dumplings. They’re just made of potatoes and a little bit of flour plus starch that helps the potato dumplings don’t fall apart. The classic Gnocchi recipe contains also eggs but if you make my recipe for Homemade Vegan Gnocchi, there are no eggs required! You can easily prepare your own and even vegan Gnocchi which taste as delicious as the regular classic potato dumplings.

I definitely prefer to make these potato dumplings from scratch, since they taste much better in my opinion when they’re homemade. Also, I know which ingredients they contain because I can choose them. It’s also possible to make this Vegan Gnocchi gluten-free. Instead of all-purpose flour, you can substitute a glutenfree-flour blend.

I usually prepare more of this delicious potato dumplings and then freeze them in batches, so that I always have some on hand when I want to serve a quick and easy dinner or lunch.

I like Vegan Gnocchi best when they’re crispy pan-fried with mushrooms, garlic, and pine nuts. Also, my beloved garlic basil-parsley pesto is a perfect addition to this easy recipe. If you want to serve this dish with other vegetables, you can head over my recipe for my Vegan Gnocchi vegetable stir-fry.

However, these potato dumplings taste also very good when they’re just cooked. You can serve them with a delicious juicy tomato sauce (such as this creamy “cashew tomato sauce“) or my beloved Vegan Mac and Cheese sauce. It’s really a dish to die for and so easy to make!

But now let’s finally get to the recipe. I hope you’ll love it too.

    I made this lovely meal for dinner 2 days ago and it was absolutely delicious. Such a nice and warming dish now that it’s getting colder. I added nutritional yeast at the end and can’t wait to cook it again. Thanks for the recipe ❤️

    I don’t have yeast flakes, but I really would like to make that gnocchi 😍 can you tell me what I can add instead?

    • Bianca Zapatka 7. February 2019 / 17:36

      You can also make this recipe without using them 😊 it’s just a kind of seasoning for a better taste.
