  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion coarsely chopped
  • 1 package 12 ounce gnocchi
  • 1/3 cup meatless crumbles
  • 1 cup balsamic roasted tomatoes
  • salt & pepper
  • for garnish: grated Manchego Parmesan, or Asiago cheese


  1. In a medium pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add chopped onion, and cook about 15-20 minutes or until onion starts to brown. If onion starts to burn, or cook too fast, add a little water to the pan so it slows the cooking. While onion cooks, in another pot, start the water to boil for the gnocchi. Once boiling, cook gnocchi according to package directions. Drain and place cooked gnocchi in a large bowl.
  2. Once onion is nice and caramelized, add soy crumbles and balsamic tomatoes to pot, and continue to cook about 3 minutes more, or until heated through. Remove tomato and onion mixture, and place in the large bowl with the gnocchi. Taste for salt and pepper, and top with grated cheese for serving. Enjoy!
