Olive Gnocchi with Parsley-thyme Sauce (vegan)
Recipe by Veganlicious

Enjoying your own freshly made gnocchi is always a treat, but even more so when the olives are special treats from France. Nyons is famous for it’s olives and olive oil. This year on our fall vacation, we made a point to bring back some of the specialties from the area.

Serves 2 people

For the Gnocchi:


2 Potatoes, (about 1 1/2 pounds)

1 Cup Flour

1/2 Cup Black Olives, Pitted and Finely Chopped


For the Sauce:


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

50 g (1.8 oz) Soy Margarine

2 Cloves Garlic, Thinly Sliced

1/3 cup Flat-Leaf Parsley, Coarsely Chopped

2 TB Fresh Thyme, just the leaves



    Step 1 Begin by pricking the potatoes with a fork in several places.

    Step 2 Place the potatoes in a preheated oven at 400 F, and bake for 30 – 40 minutes until done.

    Step 3 While the potatoes are baking, pit the olives and slice into small pieces.

    Step 4 When the potatoes are done, remove from the oven. Using a fork to hold them, remove the the skin wit a knife.

    Step 5 Pass the potato through a ricer or chop them in very fine pieces using knives or a fork. You want fluffy dry potato.

    Step 6 While the potato is still warm, add the flour and the olives and work the mixture to a dough. Allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes before rolling the dough out.

    Step 7 Turn onto a floured work surface and, using your hands, roll into 2 cm thick logs. Cut logs width ways into 1 1/2 cm. pieces, pinch in the sides of each piece slightly press one side with a fork and set aside on a floured plate.

    Step 8 Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil, add gnocchi and simmer over medium heat until they float to the surface (2-3 minutes). Transfer to a tray to keep warm.

    Step 9 Heat olive oil and soy margarine in a large frying pan, when the margarine starts to foam, add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft (2-3 minutes)

    Step 10 Add gnocchi, gently toss until coated, scatter with parsley.

    Step 11 We enjoyed these with a big mixed salad and a side dish of fresh steamed broccoli with a balsamic vinegar sauce.


    Baking the potato is quite important, as it helps to keep the gnocchi from being too floury and therefor not as delicate.
