Gnocchi Alla Romana ~ Eggless - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Gnocchi are small potato dumplings mostly associated with Italian cuisine. Gnocchi are a good alternative for pasta and can be served in any which way. I've made it eggless, using potatoes and whole wheat flour. Baked to perfection in homemade Italian Marinara sauce by adding some vegetables to give a twist. Added some cheese for my son to enjoy🧀.. but you can omit it if you don't like cheese or if you're #vegan

Recipe Notes

This can be made in white sauce too.
Traditionally they are made using eggs. You can add one egg if you like. But I used little milk to bring the dough together. If you are on vegan diet you can use any dairy free milk or even water for the same.
Gnocchi is a very good alternative for pasta. All the recipes that calls for pasta can be substituted with gnocchi.ive made in garlic and parsley flavour. These can be made with many more flavours.
So tasty and very light on stomach… perfect for breakfast and dinner.
