Vegan Potato Gnocchi + Delicious Tomato Sauce Recipe

Gnocchi is one of my favourite pasta dishes to make! It really brings me back to when I used to eat dinner at my Nonna’s on Sundays. Back in the day (meaning about 15 years ago), my family used to get together every September and make pasta sauce the authentic Italian way. This meant buying bushels of tomatoes, cutting them, adding a bit of salt, processing them through a machine and canning them. Everything was done by hand and we spent days outside doing this! Unfortunately this tradition has died out, but I think about it every time I make pasta in my kitchen.

So today I thought it would be cool to show you a plant-based Gnocchi recipe and how I like to make my pasta sauce. The cool thing about these gnocchi’s is that they don’t require any eggs. They also only require three simple ingredients: potatoes, flour and oregano!

Ingredients:

For the Gnocchi:

  • About 8 medium sized red potatoes
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano (optional)

*A quick note on ingredients: please use these measurements very loosely! All potatoes are different sizes, so you may need more or less flour. The main thing is to form a dough, while adding as little flour as possible. Refer to the video below for full instructions โ˜บ๏ธ

For the Tomato Sauce:

  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 Package Yves Veggie Ground
  • 1 Jar of tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning

Directions:

Gnocchi can be tricky to make the first time so I made a video to help you out! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ
