Those of you who has been following me on Instagram for awhile now know that I am no stranger to homemade gnocchi. We love homemade gnocchi! When it comes to homemade gnocchi, I tend to just add and toss ingredients in the food processor as I go. But my hubby and I loved this one so much and I finally got the measurements down to share with you all.
This homemade beetroot gnocchi is made with roasted beetroot, flour, nutritional yeast and plant milk. It’s quick and easy to make. They are sweet and earthy and so delicious, they barely need a sauce. Beet greens has all your vitamin A for the day, plus tons of vitamins C and K, iron, and potassium. We definitely want to include more beetroots in our diet. 🙂
Pan-fried homemade beetroot gnocchi with spinach and mushroom
Vegan homemade beetroot gnocchi made with roasted beetroot, flour, nutritional yeast and plant milk. It's quick and easy to make.
- 320g beetroot
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp unsweetened soy milk
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup additional flour for kneading
- 150g of mushrooms, sliced
- 100g spinach
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp vegan parmesan from @pimp.my.salad
Wrap beets in aluminum foil, place on a baking sheet, and roast in the oven until cooked through, approximately 50 to 60 minutes.
In a food processor, add roasted beet, soy milk, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and pulse until smooth. Transfer mixture into a large bowl, add flour, using a large spoon, stir to combine. Knead with your hands for a few minutes until a soft dough forms. Place dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll out sections of the dough into long "snakes". With a sharp knife, cut into 1-inch "pillows". Roll the pillows on a fork to form ridges in the dough. In a large pot of boiling water carefully drop in gnocchi. Once they have risen to the surface of the water, cook for a further minute. Remove, drain and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms cook until they begin to brown. Add the gnocchi and cook, tossing occasionally, add spinach and cook until wilted.
Serve the gnocchi immediately with some vegan parmesan. Enjoy.
