Ingredients for one pot mushroom gnocchi
- Refrigerated or shelf-stable gnocchi – I don’t recommend using frozen here, as they don’t hold up as well as shelf-stable or refrigerated varieties.
- Unsalted butter – This is the fat of choice to help cook and build the sauce for our gnocchi.
- Vegetable or mushroom stock – Feel free to use homemade or your favorite store-bought variety.
- Shiitake mushrooms – Shiitake mushrooms are meaty and savory, but if you can’t find them, feel free to substitute them with whatever fresh mushrooms you have on hand.
- Kale – Kale is toothsome and full of vitamins! Feel free to substitute spinach if necessary.
- Garlic – A classic ingredient that will add earthiness to the dish.
- Parmesan cheese – Parmesan cheese is an Italian cow’s milk cheese, that’s aged for at least 12 months.
- Lemon juice – Lemon juice brings a bright, fresh, citrus flavor to the dish.
What is gnocchi?
Gnocchi is an Italian pasta made with potato, egg, flour, and salt.
They are closely related to dumplings! They’re thick, dense, and super soft.
Premade gnocchi can be found in the refrigerated section of most major grocery stores.
You can also find shelf stable gnocchi online or in the pasta section of the grocery store.
How to make your own mushroom stock
Mushroom stock is deep, earthy, and full of mushroom flavor. Making it yourself couldn’t be easier!
I keep it simple by taking some dried porcini mushrooms in a glass jar and pouring boiling water on top. Let that steep for about 10 minutes, and carefully remove the mushrooms, and voila!
A super simple mushroom stock.
Lastly, take care to leave a little stock left behind in the bottom of the jar, there will be some gritty sediment from the mushrooms.
Storage and leftovers
Finally, leftovers from this one pot mushroom gnocchi can be stored in an airtight container.
To reheat, simply place in a microwave-safe bowl covered loosely with a paper towel and heat for 2-3 minutes or until heated thoroughly.
