Servings 2 servings


Green Onion Potato Gnocchi

  • 0.75 lbs yellow potatoes peeled and roasted at 400° (makes 3/4 cup mashed)
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp potato starch
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp quinoa flour
  • 1 cup diced green onions
  • 2 tbsp fresh green chives
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • vegan butter / butter / oil (to pan fry)

Sweet Miso Tomato Sauce

  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp miso paste
  • ½ tbsp tomato paste
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp sriracha
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • tsp white pepper


  • Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or a fork. Measure out ¾ cups after mashing and set aside.
  • Slice the green onions, separating the green parts from the white.
  • Slice the chives.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat with a little bit of oil. Lightly sauté ½ cup of the green onions (the white parts) and the chives.
  • In a blender, add potato starch, quinoa flour, cooked green onions and chives,mashed potatoes, olive oil and salt. Blend until a dough is formed.
  • Transfer the dough into a large bowl and add in another 3 tbsp of green onions(the green parts). Add more potato starch if needed. The dough should be a little bit sticky, but solid enough to roll.
  • Divide the dough and roll into logs on a lightly floured surface.
  • Slice into gnocchi sized pieces. Reshape each piece if needed.
  • Using the back of a wet fork, roll the gnocchi to create ridges. Wet the fork as needed.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the gnocchi in and boil until it floats to the surface.
  • Strain and rinse with cold water.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat with a little bit of butter or oil. Pan fry the gnocchi until both sides are lightly golden brown. Add in more green onions at the end and cook another 1-2 minutes.
  • Prepare the sauce: combine miso paste, tomato paste, maple syrup, sriracha, garlic powder and white pepper, cornstarch and water in a small bowl. (Optional:combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth).
  • Transfer the sauce to a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until thick and bubbly.
  • Serve the gnocchi with the sauce and garnish with more green onions if desired. Enjoy!
