Vegan Gnocchi Mushroom Bake

I love mushrooms and I love gnocchi. So why not put them together with some creaminess and serve for dinner. This recipe is 100% vegan and super easy to make. It is comforting and perfect for serving large groups of people.

Gnocchi is from the pasta family yet made from potatoes and flour into small dumpling sized pieces which take virtually no time at all to cook. So when you’ve no time to cook your jacket potatoes in the oven, turn to the gnocchi!

The soya cream and vegan mozzarella make the dish creamy and provide a rich flavour. I serve my bake with a refreshing salad but feel free to serve with something else or simply eat on its own.
