How do you prepare this gnocchi recipe with vegan Gorgonzola cheese sauce?
Prepare the carrot salmon a day or two in advance.
Soak the cashew nuts in boiling water for 10 minutes.
Dice the onion and garlic clove very finely, so I’ll use my chopper. It’s quick and onions and garlic are super fine.
Fry the onion and garlic in a pan until glassy with some water. Add more water, but only enough to cover the bottom. Add the spinach and let it collapse.
Drain the cashew nuts and rinse.
Now put the cashew nuts, the water and the remaining ingredients in a blender.
Mix at the highest level (my #10) for 10-20 seconds until a creamy consistency is created. Taste the sauce and season.
Add the cashew cream to the onions and bring to a boil.
Maybe add some water if the sauce is too thick for you. If it’s too liquid for you, and let it cook a little longer.
In the meantime, cook the gnocchi according to package instructions.
Sieve the gnocchi and mix with the sauce. Now serve with the vegan smoked salmon.
Can I make the Gorgonzola Sauce gluten free?
This gorgonzola sauce is gluten free. Whether the gnocchis are gluten-free depends on whether you made them yourself or whether you bought them. Check the ingredient list.
If the gnocchi are not gluten-free, just use a gluten-free pasta alternative.
Can you freeze the gorgonzola sauce?
This sauce can even be frozen very well and is therefore also suitable as a meal prep. Simply prepare a large amount and freeze. The sauce is kept in an airtight container for a few months.
Tips for the perfect gnocchi recipe with cheesy gorgonzola sauce:
- Replace the spinach with your favorite vegetables or kale. If you use harder vegetables like broccoli, you need to pre-cook them.
- You can also replace the cashews with coconut milk by simply replacing the amount of cashews + water.
- Instead of using gnocchi, prepare this dish with spaetzle or other pasta.
What can you do with the leftovers?
You can put leftovers of sauces in the fridge and serve them cold as a dip.
Dilute the sauce a little and serve them as a blue cheese dressing.
