How have the first few days of your year been so far?
Have you been staying on top of those New Year’s resolutions? You know, because I definitely have (shifts eyes downward guiltily)………..yeah definitely. So okay, maybe I’ve already rearranged some of my originally listed things that sounded like such a good idea a week ago and traded them with some more realistic goals, but I guess that’s better than nothing right?
I won’t go as far as to say I believe it’s impossible for you to have your own things in order either, but come on, this is real life and therefore you probably don’t. Am I right? I mean, I could pretend that my life is perfect but how boring would that be? I feel like it’s way easier to connect with each other in our struggles rather than our successes. You know what I mean? But all joking aside, this recipe is no joke. It’s just seriously delicious!
So I haven’t made a gnocchi recipe in a really long time and I’m pretty sure I’ve only made the actual gnocchi itself 2 or 3 times. One of the biggest advantages that I love about making gnocchi is that it cooks very quickly, like 2 minutes and presto. Plus, if you use store-bought gnocchi then all you’ve got to make is just the sauce. Of course homemade from scratch is always going to be better and I completely recommend you try it sometime. I’m not gonna lie though, its kind of nice to short-cut things and use store-bought every now and then. In fact, it makes this a 30-minute meal when you do that, aren’t those the best kind at the end of a long day or a hard week?
Also, this is a perfect week night meal because you just simmer everything together until you’ve got a simple, yet delicious meal that I think your whole family will enjoy! Total win win situation right here.
Creamy Vegan Mushroom & Broccoli Gnocchi (Gluten Free)
Enjoy a quick, creamy, and delicious dinner that's so simple and requires minimal ingredients. This recipe is sure to become a favorite.
- 1 pound uncooked gnocchi pasta check to make sure it's gluten free if needed
- 1/2 cup vegetable broth
- 1 head roasted garlic peeled and minced
- 3 cups broccoli florets
- 3 cups portabello mushrooms sliced
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 cup raw cashews soaked
- 1 13.5 ounce can full-fat coconut milk
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- sea salt & black pepper to taste
Heat the vegetable broth in a large (deep) skillet over medium heat and add the broccoli. Cover and steam for 6-8 minutes until fork tender.
In a blender or food processor, combine the cashews, lemon juice, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, and roasted garlic. Pulse until smooth.
Now back to the skillet, add the sliced mushrooms and continue cooking for 2 to 3 more minutes. Pour the sauce mixture into the skillet and stir until smooth.
Meanwhile, boil gnocchi according to package instructions then drain (reserving a cup of the cooking water) then add the gnocchi and reserved cooking water to the sauce. Simmer, stirring gently, until the sauce has thickened and everything is hot.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot.
If you are gluten free be sure you buy a brand of Gnocchi that is gluten free. Amazon has gluten free gnocchi you can buy.

My boyfriend and I were laughing yesterday when we passed by a gym that was packed to the gills when a month ago it was almost dead. I personally think January should be no different than say September – eat healthy year around is my motto! And this one-pot gnocchi sounds so comforting and delicious.
I agree, healthy goals are important. Thanks Nicole!
Gnocchi is one of my last meal foods! So good 🙂
About to make this however i dont have cream cheese or heavy cream but do have milk and half and half, any suggestions as far as substitution goes? Thank you in advance
You should be able to replace the heavy cream with half and half just fine and as for the cream cheese you can also use half and half but you’ll have a much thinner sauce. Do you have any cheese? You can replace the cream cheese with about 1/2 a cup of shredded cheese and most kinds should do well. Let me know if you have any other questions and I hope this helped!
