Vegan Leek & Mushroom Gnocchi

7:35 AM

Cooking from random ingredients has become a new fascination for me of late. Being able to just go shopping and grab a random selection of vegetables, fruit and basic vegan kitchen staples has been so much fun and also taken me out of my comfort zone, in a very good way. 

We all know that I love my meal plans but I am trying at least one - two dishes a week that are just made up using what ingredients I have lying around and creating my own recipes. This week I had two big pun nets of mushrooms in my fridge and leeks were on special at Coles! Leeks and mushrooms are a match made in heaven. Before I went vegan one of my favourite comfort foods was a delicious chicken, leek and mushroom pie. 

Now that I don't eat meat however, I thought I would use the same kind of concept but add some gnocchi, because hey! I had a a key of gnocchi as one of my staples this week. Gnocchi is always awesome to always have in your cupboard, same as brown rice and pastas, I don't eat it as much as rice and pasta but it's always good to have on hand when you feel like something different. 

What I created was so simple to make and so tasty I thought I would share it with you all today. I hope you enjoy it and if you would like to see more recipes on my blog let me know in the comments below.
