You are going to love this gnocchi recipe for gnocchi with white beans! It’s one of my favorite vegetarian recipes! We are definitely meat eaters in my home, but every now and then, we like to have meatless meals to keep our budget under control. Since beans are high in fiber, they really help fill you up which is why this makes a great meal.

This is a super easy vegetarian meal to make.  Everything is cooked in one pan and it can be ready in about 15 minutes. If you’re running late for dinner, this is a great choice. This is the first gnocchi recipe I’ve tried and it was really easy.  I started with fresh gnocchi found in the grocery store near the fresh pasta. If you like to make your own, you could certainly do that as well.

What you’ll need to make this Gnocchi recipe

Large covered skillet – You’ll want a large covered skillet to make this. I love one-pan meals because they are easy to clean up after. If you get a non-stick skillet, the cleanup process is even easier.

Gnocchi maker – If you want to make your own gnocchi, you will need a gnocchi maker. I’m considering this one because it’s so easy to clean afterward. Or, buy the potato gnocchi already prepared.

Gnocchi Recipe: Gnocchi with White Beans [Vegetarian Recipe]

If you have fresh spinach growing in the garden, you can grab a handful of baby spinach from there. Otherwise, you can pick some up at the farmer’s market or buy a bag of baby spinach at the grocery store. I prefer baby spinach in this recipe rather than full grown because the taste is more mellow. You can go ahead and toss in some chopped mushrooms too if you like.

Gnocchi are basically small dumplings that are made from flour, potatoes, egg, cheese, breadcrumbs, etc. There are quite a few different varieties you can find in the store. I would really love to try making my own from scratch someday when I have more time. Thankfully, I can buy them ready made at the store.
