Vegan recipe: gnocchi and veggies from the oven


Gnocchi are so delicious and filling. It’s not always easy to find a vegan version (check if they add milk in the ingredient list), but I’ve managed to find a good brand in my local organic store. Next up will be to make my own gnocchi from scratch, but until then, these will do 🙂

Ingredients (2-3p)

  • Chick'pieces250 g Mushrooms
  • 400 g fresh spinach
  • 160 g vegan chick’ pieces (ex. Vegetbutcher or Greenway in Belgium)
  • 200 ml soy cream
  • 1 package of vegan gnocchi for 2-3 people
  • 1 tsp asafoetida
  • Half a tsp turmerci
  • Pinch of pimenton (smoked paprika) powder
  • Salt (Himalayan or sea)
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil or coconut oil
  • Optional: nutritional yeast


  1. Gnocchi from the ovenClean the mushrooms (not with water, but with a paper towel or special brush) & cut in 4.
  2. Wash the spinach thoroughly and cut in slices.
  3. Boil water for the gnocchi and preheat the oven to 180°C.
  4. Put some olive or coconut oil in a frying pan or wok, allow to heat up  well before adding the vegan chic” bits until they are lightly golden.
  5. Add the mushrooms and stir fry for about 4 minutes until well done.
  6. Add the fresh spinach and stir for a couple of minutes.
  7. Add the asafoetida, curcuma and pimenton and mix with the other ingredients in the wok for  a few minutes.
  8. Add the soy cream and stir until everything is well mixed and the sauce turns nicely golden yellow (turmeric effect). Let it simmer for a while.
  9. Add pepper & salt to your own taste.
  10. Add nutritional yeast for a nutty/ cheesy flavour (optional).
  11. Add the gnocchi in the boiling water, they only need to be there for a very short time (look at the package instructions), normally as soon as 1 or 2 come up to the surface, they’re all well done and you can drain them above a sieve.
  12. Mix the gnocchi with the sauce, put it in an oven dish and leave it the oven for about 20 minutes.

Serve with a fresh green or tomato salad.

  1. I Love gnocchi – have found the Morrisons one is sfv.
    Have you tried roasting it? It was a revelation for me. We have it like this at least once a week now.
