Honey-Roasted Veggies + Gnocchi

Honey roasted veggies + gnocchi (click through for recipe) Gnocchi is among the list of favorite foods at our house. We LOVE gnocchi. Tiny potato dumplings that cook in minutes and taste like heaven? Uh, yes please.

You can totally make your own gnocchi (see here), or you can buy a pre-made gnocchi at many grocery stores. I pretty much pick up some almost every week while grocery shopping.

Honey roasted veggies + gnocchi (click through for recipe) This particular meal pairs honey-roasted vegetables with gnocchi and chopped pistachios. This is a super colorful, healthy, and delicious meal that you can have ready in a little over 30 minutes. If you don’t have the vegetables, I recommend here you could easily substitute with whatever you do have available. For example, I think this would be absolutely awesome with broccoli. Adjust your roast time depending on the vegetables you have on hand.

Purple cauliflowerHoney-Roasted Veggies + Gnocchi, serves 2-3.

1 head of cauliflower
6-8 ounces brussels sprouts
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
16 ounces gnocchi (one package)
2/3 cup chopped pistachio nuts (roasted and salted)
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter
salt + pepper to season
1 lemon

Chop up the cauliflower and brussels sprouts into small, bite-sized pieces, and place in a large bowl. Combine the honey and olive oil in cup. Pour the mixture over the vegetables, making sure every piece gets coated in the mixture.

Place the veggies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast at 375°F for 30-35 minutes. You can bake longer if you like your vegetables cooked more. Sometimes Trey and I like to really torch our vegetables, probably cooking out all the nutrients, I’m sure. 🙂

Honey roasted veggiesDuring the last 15 minutes of roasting the vegetables, get the gnocchi ready. Cook in boiling, salted water for 2-3 minutes. The gnocchi should begin to float when they’re done. Drain.

In a large skillet, melt the butter. Toss in the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute over medium heat. Now toss in the gnocchi. If they seem to stick to the pan, drizzle in a little olive oil or add a little more butter. Cook for another minute. Toss in the chopped nuts and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

How to make gnocchiOnce the vegetables are ready, toss everything together. Season with a little salt and pepper as needed. Serve with a wedge or two of lemon. Squeeze the juice over everything just before eating. Citrus for the win!

Honey roasted veggies + gnocchi (click through for recipe)I added just a little shaved parmesan cheese, but it’s really not necessary. I love the crunch of the nuts paired with the soft, chewy gnocchi. Yum! Make this for dinner next week—you’ll love it. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • Yummm! Thanks Emma, loving your recipes and so gona make this one 🙂

  • Loving these healthy recipes lately! We eat very cleanly in our home and I’m always looking for a great new recipe to make our fruit and vegetable routine more interesting and surprising. There’s only so many times you can stuff a baked potato with Greek yogurt and roasted broccoli before it becomes a chore to get through a meal. I’m digging the alternative pizza crusts (we have spaghetti squash in the cabinet to make that one tonight!) and all the veggie-filled goodness. Anything with brussels sprouts immediately has my heart. Especially with gnocchi.

    Keep up the amazing work!

  • I made this last night for dinner..So good!! The honey roasted veggies are yummy enough to stand on their own. And I never would have thought to add pistachios into the mix! I’ll certainly be making this again! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  • Yum, that looks good and healthy at the same time! I’ve never seen purple cauliflower before 🙂

  • Gnocchi is my favourite! I have never fried it in a pan however so that’s my next thing. delish recipe!
    P.s sometimes my local has purple, yellow and green cauliflower!

  • Oh yum!! This sounds sooo good; I love roasted veggies, but have never tried adding honey and lemon. Unfortunately, I’m on a special diet prescribed by my naturopath…and pistachios, potatoes and wheat are part of my rather long list of “can’t haves.” But I could try it with rice pasta and hazelnuts…not quite the same, I know; but I’m sure it would be tasty, too!!

  • Looks really good! I’m interested though – I’ve sauteed gnocchi on the stove like this and it always takes me waaaaaay longer than three minutes for it to cook through. Is that really how long it takes yours to cook?

  • Good call on the colored cauliflower, brilliant!

  • I have yet to try gnocchi. It sounds so delicious. Is it long to make?

  • Yummy! I love making big batches of gnocchi at home and then freezing (most of) it for later dinners. My favorite dish is sauteed gnocchi with browned butter and sage with pecans. Yum! But I love this lighter and delicious (and spring-y!) dish! Definitely making this sometime soon!

  • My first experience with gnocchi was not yummy at all. But I am willing to give it another chance because these photos ARE yummy!

  • Oh this looks awesome; I love the colors. And I wanted to tell you guys! This morning I tried the overnight oatmeal that you posted a while ago and it was perfect! I worked out and then was able to just grab it. Perfect!!! It was a different texture to normal cooked oatmeal but I really liked it. Thanks so much for all your recipes!

  • You need to try roasted gnocchi, they’re like little mini roast potatoes! I prickle them with a little salt and a light drizzle of olive oil and roast in the oven at 180deg centigrade for approx 30 mins – so that they’re crispy and golden on the outside and still soft and creamy on the inside. I love them 🙂

  • Oh man, I am all over this! Have you ever made your own gnocchi? It’s time consuming, but worth it. They are like little pillows of love!

  • Emma, I think it would be cool if you wrote a post sometime about how you keep coming up with such amazing recipes. How you get your inspiration? What’s your process of creating the recipes? Do you have to do a lot of tesing to get things right? I’ve baked and cooked a lot, but I’ve never been able to take the next step to make my own recipe. Would love to see your thoughts on this!

  • Hmm. Roasted gnocchi? I would love to try that. How do you do it? Does it stick to the pan or dry out?

    -Emma

  • I’m gonna have to try this!

  • I love anything honey roasted, so this recipe sounds delicious! And purple cauliflower?? It looks so pretty! 🙂

    http://everydayingrace.blogspot.ca/

  • Love this recipe. So excited to try it. Love the color of the cauliflower too, bonus points for color!

  • This looks delicious! Roasting veggies is my favorite way to eat them, but I’ve never thought to drizzle them with honey before! I’ll definitely be whipping up a batch of this as soon as possible! Thank you for the brilliant eats 🙂 xx

    The What’s In Between

  • Yummy! Love Gnocchi!

  • I love gnocchi too, and am inspired with the addition of the roasted veggies to make it a lighter and healthier meal! Still very filling, but lighter because of less gnocchi and more pure nutrients. :]

  • Well, this looks delicious. You bet I’ll be giving this one a try!

  • It was just at my local grocery store. They don’t always have it but when they do I love to get it as it’s just so pretty and adds so much color to any meal. But white cauliflower would work just as well in this recipe. 🙂

    -Emma

  • Oh, yum! I absolutely adore these simple, yet super tasty looking recipes you’re sharing, Emma 🙂 This one is definitely going on my dinner plan for next week! 🙂

  • Such pretty and spring-like colors–I recently made some gnocchi on my own, I’ll have to try jazzing them up like this!

  • Where in the world did you find that purple cauliflower??

  • Roasted Root Vegetables are my favorite! I’ve been on a roasted cabbage kick recently.
