Homemade Cauliflower Gnocchi

Three-Ingredient Homemade Cauliflower Gnocchi that is pillowy, crispy, and pairs perfectly with just about any sauce you’ve got. Easy, healthy-ish, and seriously delicious!

These long (I repeat: LONG) days at home are begging for a fun-but-simple three ingredient recipe that results in soft little pillows of delight with a golden browned exterior that can be served with, honestly, like, any sauce you have.

  • Homemade creamy tomato or vodka sauce – YUM
  • Store bought Ragu – sure!
  • Pesto of some sort – Yes, please. (I recommend kale pesto)
  • Straight up with olive oil or garlic butter

Let’s talk about how to make this gem of a recipe. Highly recommend this for a ‘date night’ at home!


Cauliflower Gnocchi:
  • 1 16-ounce bag frozen cauliflower florets 
  • 2/3 cup flour (I used almond flour, but use whatever you have)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Cook the cauliflower, depending on package. Drain.
  2. Lay cauliflower on a cheese cloth and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Squeeze excess water out of cauliflower. (Squeeze more! You need all that water out.)
  3. Place cauliflower in a food processor. Pulse until it makes crumbles. Add flour and salt. Pulse lightly until a soft, sticky dough forms.
  4. Place dough on a floured work surface. Cut into 4 sections. Roll each section into a rope. Cut each rope into little gnocchi pieces.
  5. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add a swizzle of oil and gnocchi and cook until browned. (You may need to do this in batches, depending on the size of your pan.)
  6. Add your sauce to the pan with the gnocchi. Toss to combine.

Pretty Little Cauliflower Pillows! I paired these with a quick meatball recipe.

This dish takes some effort, but do it with your loved ones and enjoy the time together in the kitchen!

Enjoy – See you in the Kitchen!
