Vegan Gnocchi Bake

Of all the vegan dishes I’ve ever made, I think this one went down best with my non-vegan family.

It has such a delicious complex flavour and there’s nothing ‘missing’.  It’s amazing.  I liked it with some roasted tomatoes to cut through the creaminess but it’s lovely as a dish all on just own – think mac and cheese but posh!

You Will Need

3 cloves of garlic

1 Medium brown onion

500g of gnocchi

2 teaspoon white miso paste

2 teaspoons mustard

Olive oil

450ml of Almond milk

3 teaspoons plain flour

Fresh rosemary (thyme works well too)

Splash of Lemon juice

Salt and pepper

150g of brocolli

40g of Vegan cheese

Optional tomatoes to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 200 C
  • Warm a glug of olive oil in a frying pan
  • Finely chop the onion and garlic
  • Cook in the frying pan until soft and then remove from the heat

  • Tip the onion and garlic into an oven proof dish
  • Chop the brocolli into small pieces and scatter it on top of the onions

  • Scatter the gnocchi on top of the brocolli and onions

  • Strip the thyme leaves from the stems and sprinkle on top
  • Season with salt and pepper and set to one side
  • Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a medium pan and warm through
  • Add 3 teaspoons of plain flour and whisk together
  • Cook, stirring all the time, until golden and bubbling
  • Gradually add the almond milk, whisking the whole time.  Continue to cook gently until thickened
  • Add 2 teaspoons of mustard, 2 teaspoons of miso and a splash of lemon juice to the pan and whisk in well
  • Cook gently until thickened
  • Pour the bechamel style sauce over the gnocchi

  • Drizzle with a little olive oil , sprinkle with more thyme and cover with foil
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes before removing the foil
  • With the foil removed, crumble some vegan cheese all.over the dish
  • Cook for a further 20-25 minutes until golden

You could use cauliflower instead of gnocchi, add a little tomato puree or sprinkle with chilli flakes – just make it your own.
