Gnocchi – The small Potato Dumplings
Gnocchi – Who doesn‘t know them? The small round dumplings that almost everyone loves! Did you know that “gnocchi” is the Italian name, by the way, and they are often called “nockerl” here in Germany?
Anyway, no matter how you call them, gnocchi is a super delicious and versatile ingredient for different dishes like this vegetable stir-fry! In combination with a creamy tomato sauce, guacamole, pesto, or just crispy fried as a tasty stir-fry, I think gnocchi is as delicious as pasta.
Make your own vegan gnocchi for this stir-fry recipe!
Of course, making gnocchi yourself is a bit more time-consuming than just buying gnocchi from the supermarket. But honestly preparing gnocchi is not as much work as you might think and your vegetable stir-fry will be much tastier! You only need three ingredients, because gnocchi is just made of boiled potatoes, flour/starch, and a bit of salt. These ingredients are simply kneaded into a dough and then formed into gnocchi. When you use a “gnocchi board” they are even easier to make and they will probably look “prettier”. But forming gnocchi also works well without using a board and they will taste just as good. The easiest way is to form small balls out of the dough and flatten them gently with a fork.

Roasted Gnocchi with vegetables – a delicious & healthy lunch or dinner!
Since gnocchi are mainly made of potatoes, I think that they actually count as vegetables. But of course, you can always eat more vegetables anyway. Not only because it‘s so healthy, but also because dishes with different ingredients taste even better. Do you agree? I like vegetables best when they are grilled or pan-fried as this makes them more flavorful. Especially, when the gnocchi are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, a vegetable stir-fry like this one is definitely one of my favorite meals!
Of course, you can choose your favorite vegetables to taste and as desired. For this recipe, I chose zucchini, mushrooms, and tomatoes. But I also like “Crispy roasted gnocchi with garlic mushrooms and pine nuts“. I think, there’s nothing better than a deliciously nutritious, and nourishing meal that is still so healthy, right?
