Mushroom & Kale Gnocchi

Recipe by From the Kitchen of Jillian Harris


  • 1 small yellow onion chopped very fine

  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed

  • 1 tbsp 1 vegan butter

  • 3/4 cup 3/4 white wine

  • 2 packages gnocchi (you can use any kind you like!)

  • 5 cups 5 sliced brown cremini mushrooms

  • 1 tbsp 1 Better than Boullion Vegetarian No Chicken Base Stock (If you can’t find vegan chicken stock use vegetarian!)

  • 2 tbsp 2 Yoso Garlic Cream Cheese (or any other vegan other cream cheese or you can even make your own!)

  • 3 tsp 3 cornstarch

  • 1/3 cup 1/3 nutritional yeast

  • 2 cups 2 unsweetened almond milk

  • 2 cups 2 of destemmed chopped kale leaves (or 1 cup frozen chopped kale leaves)


  • Saute onion, garlic, and butter, in a pan for a few minutes.
  • Add the Better than Boullion stock and saute until the onions are translucent (don’t let the onion and garlic brown!).
  • Add the white wine to the mixture and stir.
  • Add the 5 cups of mushrooms and saute. Let everything reduce on medium to low heat so that you’re not browning anything, you just want it to get nice and soft!
  • Add 2 tbsp Yoso garlic cream cheese and stir.
  • Make your cream sauce while everything is simmering in your pan.
  • For the cream sauce, mix together 3 tsp cornstarch, 1/3 cup nutritional yeast, and 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk. Whisk together until the cornstarch is fully dissolved.
  • Add the cream sauce to the mushroom and onion mixture and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle salt on the mixture while simmering to taste.
  • Add kale to the mixture and let reduce for 2 minutes on medium
  • Add a small squeeze of lemon juice once the mixture has finished simmering.
  • Toss the cooked gnocchi in your pan so it can get nice and coated with the sauce and mixture. You can buy pre-made vegan gnocchi or there are some great recipes online. I usually buy the regular gnocchi but it does have eggs in it … it’s up to you how hardcore you want to take it!
  • Sprinkle some fresh Italian parsley on top and serve!

  1. Hey Jill
    Thank you for sharing this recipe it looks delicious! I am dying to make this for my family but we aren’t vegan so what can you suggest to substitute?

  2. Hi Jillian, I made this last week and I loved it , it was so good. My 3 year old also devoured it and said repeatedly “mummy this is so delicious!”. While I was eating she got mad at me and said “don’t eat it all!! Then it will be all gone!”. I wish my 7 and 8 year old were as excited about it but they don’t like mushrooms yet. For that reason, I probably won’t make it again for a while 🙁

  3. Thanks Jillian, the recipe was a hit with our girls weekend away at Whistler. We do a dinner each and a breakfast each and the girls just loved the kale mixed with the Gnocchi…the flavor of this recipe is fantastic. Will have to make it again. Hint for keeping kale longer. Wash kale and remove stems and chop then drizzle a couple of table spoons of olive oil and massage kale with your hands in large bowl. Kale will turn bright green and soften. Store in bag or container in fridge and will last about a week. Great to add to your salads or other recipes.

      1. Perhaps you added a spot too much almond milk, or wine? I know I tend to go a bit overboard with the wine myself

    1. Regular gnocchi isn’t gluten free but there are certain brands that use rice flour instead of regular flour. 🙂

  4. Very excited to try this recipe, I don’t have nutritional Yeast, am I able to replace it with something else, or skip this step?

    1. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy flavour!! You CAN skip it if you don’t have it but I would try it with it in! XOXO

  5. Loved it!!! Improvised on a couple things – super tastey!!! I will make it again – Love your vegan(ish) story too Jillian!! Read it a short time before adopting the same lifestyle- Being northern Alberta raised your story is so relatable ?

    1. What did you improvise with Nicole??? I’d love to hear how you tweaked it!!! XOXO

  6. This has been on my plan to make for a while. Finally did tonight, and EVEN with my subs for food restrictions for me was a huge hit with my family. (I had to leave out the onions & garlic, I added “hing” to the cream sauce – garlic sub, and used my own bone broth ) it was delish. No leftovers and it has already been requested again.

  7. This was a hit! I substituted with real dairy products (butter, cream cheese, milk), replaced nutritional yeast with cheddar cheese, and replaced the wine with chicken stock as I am pregnant which made me too nervous to use wine!

    We served it with bbq’d chicken.

    Wish the instructions were a bit more clear about temperatures and steps to complete (ie when to cook gnocchi, if the cream sauce was to be made cold or on the stove?).

    Will definitely make it again!
