How To Turn Your Favorite Veggies Into Gnocchi


Italian gnocchi are one of the greatest pleasures in life. Bite-sized, cloud-like dumplings, typically made from potato, they basically taste like an edible hug.

While potato is the most common base to make gnocchi, it's not the only ingredient that can be used. Butternut squash, sweet potato, and even greens like arugula or spinach can be turned into gnocchi and they taste just as good -- if not better -- than the original recipe. If you ask us, this is the best way to get your recommended serving of veggies.

Here are seven recipes that will help you turn your favorite vegetables into irresistible dumplings. Make them, eat them and then use them as inspiration for other vegetable gnocchi creations.
