Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Pumpkin Seed Pesto

This Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Pumpkin Seed Pesto is such a great crowd pleasing dish. Making the pesto and gnocchi from scratch may seem intimidating but it’s actually incredibly simple to create and doesn’t take long at all. I love mixing up what veggies I put in my gnocchi, these are with sweet potato but this recipe would also work great with pumpkin, squash, cauliflower or regular potato or even a mixture. I hope you love making this recipe!



Peel and chop the potatoes and steam until soft
While the potatoes are cooking, place the basil, pumpkin seeds, garlic, lemon, olive oil, nutritional yeast and 1tbsp of cashew parmesan into a blender and pulse into a pesto
Mash the steamed potato and leave to cool to room temperature, once cooled mix in the chickpea flour with the remaining cashew parmesan
Knead the gnocchi and roll into a 2cm wide rope and cut into pieces
Boil the gnocchi for around a minute, until the pieces float
add to a pan olive oil and chopped broccoli, cook for a few minutes and then add in the gnocchi and fry until golden
Mix in the pesto and serve
