Gnocchi with Roasted Sweet Potato and Garlic Cream Sauce

Back in "the before", as in before Occupy Veggie Mama was discovered, I was eating all sorts of delicious things. Now I'm mainlining melon and hoping someone will deliver me dinner.

Exhibit A:

Now this, as I said on Instagram, to the untrained eye looks like a blurry pile of puke. I was lazy and didn't think I'd blog it, but it was so good I snapped a pic for my fellow IG-obsessors and was asked for the recipe. Being a giving sort of gal, I'm posting it. Puke-pile photo and all.

Serves 2, generously.

1 packet gnocchi, cooked according to packet specifications
1 sweet potato, diced and baked 30 minutes
2 tbs butter
half an onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
300ml cream
pinch salt
plenty of grated parmesan


1. Before you cook your gnocchi, saute the onion, garlic and mushrooms in butter, until mushrooms are soft and beginning to pick up a little colour. Take care not to burn the garlic.

2. Add cream and bring to a boil.

3. Turn heat down and simmer, adding a big pinch of salt.

4. Cook your gnocchi.

5. Add a ton of grated parmesan to your sauce, and add the sweet potato, stirring gently.

6. Serve with gnocchi and extra parmesan on top. Yum!

  1. DROOLING! Puddles of saliva on my keyboard.

  2. man, everybody's been so kind with my lack of fabulous photos. I am still cringing I put this one up, but the recipe needed to be shared with the masses! xx

  3. Have I told you lately, that I love you?

    Gnocci + cream + sweet potato + garlic = the direct route to my heart.

  4. Simple and delicious. It has my vote and personally, I love that you don't have to make your own gnocchi! :)

  5. I've tried and failed miserably! Just cannot do it.
