  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp potato starch + 8 tsp water

  • 5 tbs nutritional yeast


  1. Start with parchment paper on a baking sheet. Lay down your halved cherry tomatoes and season them with a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast them for around 20 minutes at 415°F.
  2. When your oven roasted tomatoes have reached the 10 minute mark, it’s time to get going and make the gnocchi white sauce. Start by melting the vegan butter in a casserole.

  4. Carefully pour the mix into the sauce and bring to a slow boil while whisking. When it starts to thicken, add the rest of the almond milk. Keep whisking for about 4 minutes.
  5. Next and last, add the optional nutritional yeast and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2 additional minutes.
