Easy vegan gnocchi

Preparazione 20 min
Cottura 5 min
Tempo totale 25 min
Porzioni 2


  • 180 g tofu
  • 140 g rice flour
  • 70 g water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder (optional)
  • basil leaves (optional)


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile combine tofu, water, salt and 130g of rice flour in the bowl of a blender. Add turmeric and herbs - if using - then blend until you get an homogeneous mixture.
  • Pour the gnocchi dough on a surface sprinkled with remaining rice flour. Divide the dough into four and roll each piece into a rope about 3/4 inch in diameter. Using a sharp knife, cut each rope in 1 inch large pieces to obtain the gnocchi.
  • Simmer gnocchi into boiling water until they start to float. Drain and sauté for a couple of minutes in a hot pan with choosen sauce (see notes), top with fresh herbs to taste and serve immediately.


Pillowy and rich tofu gnocchi match well with a light sauce such as tomato or sautéed mixed vegetables, a classic basil or tasty zucchini almond pesto
