The Edgy Veg

Vegan Gnocchi

one pot pasta vegan


I am all about that #CarbLife . Pasta should be it’s own food group and it should be the biggest one, so I can eat even more of it! If I could I would eat pasta 3 meals a day without regrets. Since I am getting married in less than 3 months – this is not an option for me – at this time. So right now I am forced to enjoy pasta only once a week… darn you wedding dress! If you’re on any sort of #detox #lowcarb #someotherdietthatshoudntmatter and you’re looking for a cheat day, or a quick easy and healthy dinner- this is your new go to!



Seriously, this dinner takes 20 mins or less! Don’t believe me? Check out the video above where I show you JUST how easy it can be! Plus it’s all done in one pot, so you’ve got less dishes to do later. To make this easy and delicious Spinach and Sausage Gnocchi heat up some oil in a large skillet, add in garlic and onions and then sauté them. Now crumble up some vegan sausage and mix it in along with 1/4 cup of vegetable broth and 1 can of diced tomatoes Mix that all together and then add in a package of store bought Gnocchi. Cover you pan and let your ingredients cook for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes sprinkle spinach over the top along with a little pepper, mix your ingredients together again, cover your pan and cook the whole thing for about 5 more minutes. After 5 minutes add in your vegan parmesan, give the ingredients another stir and you are done. Now that wasn’t so hard was it? This paragraph only took me 3 mins to write, and this pasta will be just as easy 🙂

    Delicious and easy to make! I’ve never bought vegan sausage so wasn’t sure about this recipe. Super fast and tasty! Def part of our weeknight dinner relations. Even non vegan children love it!

  • Krista Forman says:

    I made this pretty quickly for a vegan pot luck. It turned out great! I love the gnocchi and sausage aspect. I will make this again!

  • Yeah. I really like Field Roast in this recipe as well.

  • All I can say is WOW!! I honestly had low expectations because this recipe just seemed too easy!!!! I’m used to complicated, a million ingredient recipes but not only was this easy – it was freaking delicious! My husband loved it as well and said this one will go into our meal rotation for sure! Thank you!!!

    • Oh and I used Tofurky beer sausage – I think the sausage you use could make or break it! I’m glad I used this one!

  • Cassandra says:

    Just made this for the first time Sunday night. I’m not a huge fan of complicated recipes that require a lot of prep time but this recipe was SO quick to prep and easy to cook! My fiance was a huge fan of the final product and so was I! This will definately become a staple and I can’t wait to make it for others so they can see how good of a vegan meal this is!

  • Hi EdgyVeg!
    Does this dish reheat nicely if you make it the day before?


  • Atefeh Fathnezhad says:

    It was delish. I made it tonight and will make it again!

  • EdgyVeg says:

    I hope you enjoy this recipe!

  • We tried this one last night. It was a thumbs up-thumbs down. The sauce and gnocchi were great, BUT the vegan sausage left a lot to be desired. I think it was due to the product we used, Yves spicy Italian sausage, and not the recipe itself. Next time I make this I think I will cut that out all together and add mushrooms instead for the meaty feel and taste.

    Side note: my husband and are aren’t vegan, but we are incorporating vegan/vegetarian meals 3-4 times a week.

    • EdgyVeg says:

      Hi Taylor! I am so glad to hear that you and your husband are starting to incorporate vegan meals into your diet. Replacing the vegan sausage with mushrooms sounds like a great alternative. My person favourite for vegan sausage brands is Field Roast.

  • I can’t find the link for the parmesan cheese? All three pastas look scrumptious, but I think I will try the sausage gnocchi tonight! Loving your recipes and videos, so glad I stumbled on your page!! 🙂

  • Yum yum

  • Linda Porter says:

  • Natasha says:

  • Natasha says:
