What is pumpkin gnocchi?

Gnocchi is a small bite-size dumpling that is speculated to come from Italy. The traditional pasta-like dumpling is made mainly of potatoes. So the question people ask is, is it pasta? Not really, pasta is made with flour, eggs and water. The gnocchi is typically made with flour, mashed potatoes and eggs.

In this recipe the pumpkin made the gnocchi even more delicious.


pumpkin gnocchi, gluten-free


For this gluten-free pumpkin gnocchi recipe, I used potato flour, so there is no need to cook the potatoes and then mash them. Also, I added pumpkin puree, buttermilk and a pinch of nutmeg. The small dumplings are outstanding. But it is the sauce that ties everything together. 

What I love about making gnocchi, they are super easy to make, and you can add them to various sauces. You can also add textures and flavours like pumpkin, spinach, cheese, even bacon to make them extra tasty.

Because I wanted to keep the fall flavours, I added pumpkin and healthy buttermilk, making them extra tasty. 

sage and onion parmesan sauce…

To make the sauce is simple 🙂 First, you sauté the onions with fresh sage, add milk, parmesan cheese, spices, and cook until the sauce thickens. Very simple creamy sauce recipe.

Once the pumpkin gnocchi is cooked, add them to the sauce and stir, that’s it! For serving, I add extra parmesan cheese and fresh sage. Gnocchi makes for a wonderful starter, a side, or the main course enjoy! You will find more gluten-free pumpkin recipes here->
