Mushroom Gnocchi Without Cream

I’ve always loved creamy gnocchi. So I absolutely had to make a vegan version without cream and other dairy products! And the mushroom gnocchi without cream turned out so good!

I used a homemade vegan cream sauce made with cashews, almond milk, and nutritional yeast, which is also great with pasta.

You need only six ingredients:

  1. cashews
  2. nutritional yeast
  3. white or yellow miso paste
  4. Dijon mustard
  5. tapioca starch
  6. garlic

Just put all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and process until smooth. This usually takes about a minute or less.

Why cashews? Nuts are the perfect base for vegan cream and cheese sauces. They make the sauces super creamy and rich!

Why nutritional yeast? Nutritional yeast is not only packed with vitamins, it also has a delicious nutty and cheesy taste that is perfect for vegan cream sauces.

Why miso paste? Miso paste has a very deep, salty, and savory flavor. In combination with nutritional yeast it’s perfect for vegan cheese sauces.

Why dijon mustard? Mustard gives these mushroom gnocchi without cream an even deeper flavor!

Why tapioca starch? Tapioca works us a thickener in this recipe. Unlike any other starch, it will also make the sauce stretchy!

Why garlic? Well, that goes without saying! Because it’s just AMAZING!

I’ve already used this sauce for my vegan gnocchi with spinach and tomatoes a couple of months ago. I got so much positive feedback and you guys absolutely loved it! So these mushroom gnocchi are actually a spin-off of my vegan gnocchi. We make it all the time and we just can’t get enough of it!

How to Make These Mushroom Gnocchi with Broccoli

As I said, the recipe for these mushroom gnocchi couldn’t be easier! All in all, you need only 15 minutes!

It’s ready in only 5 easy steps:

  1. Cook the gnocchi according to the instructions on the package together with the broccoli florets. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, heat some oil and sauté the mushrooms for about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Now make the sauce. Add all ingredients in a high speed blender and process until smooth.
  4. Pour the sauce into the pot you used for the mushrooms and heat for about 2 minutes until it considerably thickens up.
  5. Add the gnocchi, the broccoli, and the mushrooms. Stir well and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!

If you want you can also sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley on top! Vegan comfort food at its best!

Have you ever tried making gnocchi from scratch? If you want these mushroom gnocchi to be even fancier and you got more time, you can also make homemade vegan gnocchi from scratch. For a quick weeknight dinner I’m totally okay with store-bought gnocchi, but why not invest a bit more time on the weekend sometimes?
