Gnocci A Little Like That #Vegan

Charlie and I saw this recipe in the coupon magazine Kroger/JayC sends out:

Italian Made Easy: A Hearty and Flavorful Gnocci Dish to Warm up Cool Nights.

I decided to take it to Thanksgiving but, since our vegan daughter was coming, I decided to veganize it.

I left out the sausage, o’ course! Naturally, I added mushrooms, because mushrooms. No chili flakes because Charlie doesn’t like things too spicy. We didn’t have any green onions, so I used diced sweet onions. Instead of topping it with cheese, I took a package of Feta and put it on the side for people to add if they wanted to.

There were a few leftovers, and that was very good, indeed, with some pesto mixed in.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about some quick and easy spaghetti and bread-ish-sticks.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about your character’s Thanksgiving. If they don’t have that holiday or a comparable holiday in your imagined world, write about something your character is thankful for, or is told they should be thankful for.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    What, no tomatoes? YIKES! Still, I would eat that!
    Feta on the side! BRILLIANT idea.
    I will bring my own REAL (from Walmart) bacon bits!)
    Holly, Wendy, Marion, Nancy: He’s a glutton! He’ll eat anything but liver! And some shellfish!
    Sadly, all these people are right.
    And I would also eat it alone while reading a real paper book, if there was no company.
    How I maintain a decent weight, is unknown!
    Luck. I guess. OINK!

      All your additions sound yummy, Pete! And my weight … Oh, my weight. I don’t know why it’s rocketing up; I’m not eating any more, and I couldn’t possibly move any less than I did before. Can I blame stress? Yeah, I’ll grasp at any straw. And then eat it.

    I’d try it. I make gnocchi when I’m feeling very Italian and let’s drink wine and play show tunes. I have always been curious bout boxed and frozen.

      Home-made is much better. I didn’t make them this time because when I make something for other people, The Universe thinks I’m auditioning for I Love Lucy. So I used boxed. Home-made is better.

    Well, a handful of diced tomatoes (One large or 2 small tomatoes!) in the whole pot, will not kill any diet. It, in fact, helps digestion. And they have lycopene, vitamins, minerals! And there would be added color. Now, if you only made enough for 2 plates, then ONE small tomato is in order. There is little caloric gain, there. Moreover, the added flavour, is scrumpdeli-icious! I worked in a restaurant for a number of years. (Do not let the glutton from Canada sneak in a 2nd small tomato!)

    Now, as for the bacon bits, THEY are much more problematical. If you are like me, you just put on a pound. If, instead, you are REASONABLE, and just put a sprinkle on top, well, then that is OK.

    Young Marian Walker! You do not know the POWER of the Bacon Side! Join me, and we can rule the dinner plate together! Yum! Baaaaacon! PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!)

    The kind men in the white suits are here again.
