Every winter, I struggle with a decline in motivation to cook healthy meals. Between the cold weather, comfort food cravings, and endless activities, it can be a real challenge. So, I’m always on the lookout for easy, warm, and nutrititous dinners to prepare for weeknights. This roasted winter veggie gnocchi is one of my absolute favorites and I’m very excited to share it with you all! It’s packed with healthy seasonal vegetables, topped with delicious parmesan and walnuts, and it’s even vegetarian! Get ready for an easy, hearty, and comforting winter pasta dish that is filled with wonderful flavors!

Get Your Boost of Winter Veggies

Serve this dish as a hearty side or eat it as your main course!

We start this easy dish by prepping our winter veggies. I chose them for this recipe because they’re in season, which means I’m choosing produce that is local and reasonably priced. Of course I also wanted to use them because they really bring bold, hearty flavors to this dish. Vegetables like butternut squash, parsnips, and brussels sprouts are high in fiber and antioxidants, keeping you healthy and satisfied in the colder weather! When blended with warm spices like sage and thyme, this dish provides a wonderful, belly-warming sensation as well.

For the Love of Gnocchi

Satisfy those cravings for comfort food in a healthier way.

I love gnocchi in the winter because it’s hearty yet cooks really quickly. Less time cooking means less effort on cold winter nights, and that sounds good to me! If you’re feeling motivated, you can try to make your very own gnocchi with our simple homemade gnocchi recipe! If you are making your own, I suggest trying it with sweet potatoes or purple potatoes to add more color and sweet flavor to this dish. 

How To Make This Roasted Winter Veggie Gnocchi

Dive into the comforting flavors of our winter gnocchi recipe.

It’s so easy to make this simple gnocchi recipe. Prepare your veggies while your oven preheats to 400 degrees F. Toss them with olive oil and sage, then spread them out evenly over a lined baking sheet. Roast them for about 20 minutes, flipping once half way through, until they’re soft and golden in color.

While the vegetables are roasting, boil a large pot of water. Then, when the veggies have been removed from the oven, add the gnocchi to the pot and cook it for 2 to 3 minutes, until they’re all floating. Drain and combine the gnocchi with the vegetables, and top with spinach, olive oil, lemon juice, sage, thyme, and parmesan. Toss the ingredients together until everything is well combined and the spinach is slightly wilted. Serve and enjoy.
