Leftover Mashed Potato

We eat a lot of mashed potatoes, and it happens sometimes that we are left with so many leftovers. Everytime it happens I have to think what should I make out of them. Next day mashed potato doesn’t taste as good as fresh.

I have found a perfect solution for that. It is a vegan homemade gnocchi using leftover creamy mashed potato. It’s actually so easy to make that I prefer to make it this way than doing from scratch. You just need to mix mashed potato with some flour and salt and you make a super soft dough. It is also so creamy inside as it has all the goodnes from mashed potato such as vegan milk or cream or butter.

Lemon and garlic mashed potato gnocchi sauce

I think simple is always the best. Lemon, garlic and parsley is one of my favourite combinations for a really long time. You just have to heat up some olive oil, add lots of minced garlic, then parsley and lemon juice. It’s a very quick sauce that takes literally 5 minutes to make. Also add cooked gnocchi staright to the sauce and let flavours meet and absorbe each other.

How long does this recipe last?

This recipe will keep safely for 1-2 days in your fridge. Make sure to reheat it gently so you don’t break the gnocchi!
