Homemade Vegan Gnocchi Recipe Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 30 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
▢ 2 lbs potatoes, whole (Russet, Yukon Gold and Maris Piper varieties work best)
▢ 1 tsp salt
▢ 1 cup semolina
▢ 1/2 cup flour, plus more for dusting and as needed
1Preheat a conventional oven to 200 degrees C/400 degrees F. Wrap each potato tightly in a piece of foil and arrange them on a baking tray. Bake for 55 minutes – 1 hour, or until fully softened and cooked through.
2When cool enough to handle, mash the potatoes by either passing them through a ricer, or peeling and mashing them by hand using a potato masher or a fork until no lumps remain.
3Transfer the mashed potatoes to a large mixing bowl and season generously with salt. Next, add the semolina and flour and mix thoroughly by squeezing the dough with your hands. If it's sticky, add extra flour until it no longer sticks to your hands. If the dough doesn't stick together, then add either a splash of water or olive oil.
4Add a little bit of flour to a flat work surface and transfer the dough onto it. Divide the dough into around 10 equal segments by cutting it horizontally, and roll each section out into a rope around 1 1/2 cm in diameter. Then, proceed to divide the rope into smaller segments around 1 1/2 cm length each.
5To make gnocchi groves using a fork, place it face down on the flat surface and use your thumb to roll each gnocchi down the tines of the fork, forming a grove in the middle.
6Bring a pot of salted water to a simmer over a low-medium heat. Working in batches, submerge the gnocchi in the water and allow to cook for around 3 minutes, until they float to the surface. When they do so, remove them using a slotted spoon.
7If you wish, panfry the gnocchi for an additional 3-4 minutes in olive oil to achieve perfect crispiness.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
