  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach

  • 1 (16 ounce) package gnocchi

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 (8 ounce) package crimini mushrooms, quartered

  • 3 stalks celery, diced

  • 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans

  • cup french-fried onions

  • ¼ cup white wine

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon dried sage

  • ¾ cup vegan pesto

  • ½ cup vegetable broth


  1. Place spinach in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Separate with a fork and drain.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook gnocchi in the boiling water until they float to the top, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until warm. Add mushrooms and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add celery, cover, and cook for 3 more minutes. Remove mushrooms and celery to a bowl.

  4. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet. Add gnocchi and brown, flipping halfway through, 4 to 6 minutes. Add mushroom-celery mixture, cannellini beans, spinach, onions, wine, salt, and sage; simmer until heated through, about 3 minutes.

  5. Mix together vegan pesto and vegetable broth in a small bowl. Pour into skillet over gnocchi and serve.
