3-Ingredient Butternut Squash Gnocchi

3.7 from 3 reviews



1 lb cubed butternut squash (no skin!)

1 white or russet potato, peeled and cut into chunks

2 cups gluten-free flour of choice

1 tsp sea salt, optional

1/2 tsp pepper, optional


Steam (do not boil!) butternut squash and potato until soft (test with a fork). Place steamed squash and potato in a large mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher until smooth. Stir in flour and mix with your hands until a thick dough forms.

Flour your hands and flour your kitchen counter. Separate dough into two balls and roll each ball, one at a time, into a long snake-like line of dough on the floured surface. Cut lines of dough into 1 inch pieces. Repeat until all dough is used.

Meanwhile, boil a large pot of water. Once boiling place gnocchi pieces (do it in  2-3 batches) in the water and cook for 5-7 minutes. Remove gnocchi from the pot with a slotted spoon and place on a plate with paper towels on it to remove excess water. Top or mix with desired sauce.


Optional vegan Brown Butter Sage Sauce:
4 tbsp vegan butter
½ tsp dried sage
1/4 cup vegan parmesan
salt and pepper

Heat butter in a skillet or sauce pan until melted. Reduce heat to medium and add sage, parmesan, and salt & pepper. Stir until evenly combined. Pour in cooked gnocchi and stir until coated and heated through. Serve warm with more parmesan if desired.
