Ingredients for vegetable gnocchi soup

  • Olive oil – Our fat of choice for sautéing our veggies.
  • Onion, carrot, celery, garlic – These are classic ingredients for the beginnings of most soups that will help us build flavor!
  • Italian seasoning – Feel free to use your favorite store-bought blend.
  • Red pepper flakes – Red pepper flakes will add a spicy kick to our soup!
  • Vegetable stock – Feel free to use your favorite store-bought or homemade.
  • Unsweetened coconut milk – Coconut milk will give us a smooth and creamy texture. 
  • Potato gnocchi – These can be found in most specialty grocery stores. Make sure to get vegan gnocchi to keep this dish vegan-friendly.
  • Beans – I’ve used two here, garbanzo and great northern. They will give us a creamy texture and nutty flavors.
  • Nutritional yeast – Nutritional yeast will give a salty umami flavor to the soup.

What is nutritional yeast?

Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast, in the form of yellow powder or flakes.

It is often used in vegan cooking to add umami or a cheesy flavor to vegan dishes. 

It can be found in most specialty or health food stores.

Make ahead

This vegan vegetable gnocchi soup can be made in advance and frozen so it’s ready when you are!

To freeze, cook as directed and let the soup cool to room temperature. Then store cooled soup into airtight containers in your freezer for up to 3 months!

To reheat, simply thaw overnight in the refrigerator and heat on the stove in a pot over medium heat until boiling.
