Recipe with only a few ingredients, it is easy to put together. Rolling the gnocchi takes a little bit of time, but it's well worth it for light and fluffy dumplings to eat with your favorite sauce.


  • 350 g of potato or 3 medium potatoes
  • 1/3 cup of gluten free flour blend ( I used Orgran plain GF flour) + a bit extra to roll
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • a sprinkle of pepper
  • tomato sauce or sauce of your choice, to serve
  • vegan parmesan and fresh basil, to serve


  1. Peel and cut potatoes in large pieces. Place potato in a large pot and cover with water. Bring water to the boil, and continue to cook until potatoes are cooked through. Let the potatoes cool slightly.
  2. Grate the potatoes. I suggest doing this by hand, a food processor will make the mix too gluey. Ensure there are not any big potato pieces left.
  3. in a large bowl, mix the potato, salt, flour and olive oil. Knead until well combined. On a clean surface, sprinkle some flour. Roll the mix into a log about 1cm diameter, then cut into smaller pieces about 2cm. Roll each piece on a Gnocchi board or if you don;t have one, you can use two forks to roll each piece. You can also just use the pieces without shaping them if you are short on time and looks don’t matter.
  4. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Place the gnocchi in the water and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they rise to the surface. Drain and serve with warm tomato sauce and dress with basil and vegan parmesan.
  5. Enjoy 🙂
