vegan gnocchi easy recipe to make it at home with easy and readily available ingredients

Everyone who knows me is aware of how much I adore spaghetti. Additionally, I enjoy preparing pasta and I truly love fresh pasta! Vegan gnocchi is one of the simplest types of fresh pasta to prepare at home because it only needs 3 ingredients and absolutely no special equipment.

This easy-to-make vegan gnocchi uses no eggs. These delightfully fluffy yet dense pillows of pasta are made with only potatoes, flour, and a little oil.

Equipment you will need:

  • Potato Ricer.
  • Mixing Bowl.
  • Fork.


  • 535g baked and peeled russet potatoes (~4 1/2 cups riced, unpacked).
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) salt.
  • 2 tablespoons or 20g olive oil.
  • 284g all purpose flour, more as needed.


  1. Potatoes that have been prepared, cooled, and peeled should be cut up. One piece at a time, press them through a potato ricer. You could also completely mash them to get rid of any lumps.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, olive oil, and mashed or riced potatoes. The ingredients should be combined with clean hands, and they should then be lightly kneaded into a cohesive ball. Add flour if the mixture is too sticky until your palm can be removed from it without sticking. Add a little extra olive oil until the mixture comes together if you can't get the flour to fully absorb and blend into the potatoes. The secret is to avoid having a wet, sticky dough so that it is simple to handle and shape into tiny dumplings.
  3. Take a tiny portion of the dough at a time and shape it into the gnocchi while covering it to prevent drying out. Squeeze a 1 teaspoon (6g) piece of dough into a ball with a rough shape in your fist, then roll it between your palms to make it circular.
  4. Place a fork face down on the counter, take the ball, and place it at the top of the backside of the tines of the fork to create the characteristic gnocchi form with the grooves on one side. Slide the gnocchi down the fork's tines while holding the dough piece between your thumb and index finger until you reach the counter. When the gnocchi has grooves around about 3/4 of the dough and a small inset depression where your thumb was, it has turned under your thumb.
  5. Repeat with the rest of the dough. If the dough ever becomes too sticky, add a little more flour and knead it into the leftover unshaped dough. The shaped gnocchi won't adhere to one another as a result of this.
  6. Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil before beginning to cook the gnocchi. Half the gnocchi should be added to the saucepan and boiled for about 4 minutes, or until they float to the top and continue to cook for a further minute. Cook the second batch of gnocchi after removing the cooked ones with a slotted spoon.
  7. The cooked gnocchi can be used in your preferred dish or kept in the refrigerator for up to a week or you can freeze for longer.


The potatoes can be prepared anyway you choose. It is recommended to cook them without boiling them because boiling potatoes causes them to retain more water. For the greatest results, I advise either microwaving or roasting the potatoes.

When baked, potatoes can lose between 30 and 40% of their weight, but this varies depending on how long you bake them for, whether you cover them with foil or not, and how long you let them cool (causing more moisture to evaporate before using). Use 2 1/2 lbs of russet potatoes that haven't been cooked to make 1 lb3–4oz of baked potatoes as a general rule. If you need more flour, it's simple to add it.

For 45 to 60 minutes, or until tender and easily pierced with a fork, the potatoes should be roasted at 425 degrees. With a utensil or knife, pierce the potatoes a number of times. You can cut the preparation time by 15-20 minutes by microwaving the potatoes for three minutes before baking. Let them settle before using.

To make potatoes that have been previously baked softer and simpler to rice or mash, microwave them for one minute before using.

Pay attention to the dimensions of your gnocchi. A teaspoon measurement produced big gnocchi. Use a half teaspoon as a measuring unit if you want smaller ones.

In addition to being a terrific addition to soups and stews, this gnocchi may be used in place of pasta in dishes like Vegan Lemon Pasta with Capers and Pasta with Green Sauce.

Vegan gnocchi should be frozen solid in a single layer on a baking sheet before being stored in a freezer-safe bag or container. Directly from frozen, cook.
