Recipe: Vegan Gnocchi

Some people make things far more complicated than they need to be, gnocchi isn’t hard to make, it’s just a little time consuming but with this recipe you won’t need to worry about making things difficult for yourself.

Serves 2


  • 2 large potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup of flour
  • Olive oil
  • Water
  • Salt & pepper to taste

How To

  1. Boil the potatoes until they are soft, drain and leave to cool.
  2. Once completely cooled mash the potatoes or run them through a ricer until you have a smooth mash.
  3. Add the flour a little at a time and kneed until you have a dough adding flour as needed until you can work into a ball without sticking.
  4. Break the dough into two sections and roll out into long sausages about 2 cm in diameter.
  5. Using a floured pastry cutter or knife cut the roll into gnocchi pieces, place these in a bowl and coat with flour to stop them sticking together.
  6. Boil a large pan of water, once boiling add a few of the gnocchi pieces at a time and allow them to cook for two minutes, they should all be floating by then.
  7. Remove them from the pan using a slotted spoon, place in a bowl and coat with olive oil, continue doing this a few pieces at a time until you have cooked all the pieces.
  8. Cover with your favorite sauce – I served mine with a homemade basil and walnut pesto.
