 Sunny and Luna Pumpkin Gnocchi Sunny & Luna

Inspired by Perry Santanachote's recipe for theKitchn, we found that the addition of nutmeg and Sunny & Luna natural and nutritious cauliflower gnocchi makes for the perfect autumnal dinner...


Serves 4

2 Pack Sunny & Luna Cauliflower Gnocchi

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 (15-ounce) can crushed or diced tomatoes

1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin purée

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

2 teaspoons apple cider or white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary

1/4 teaspoon dried sage

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 cup heavy cream (or your favourite vegan nut milk)

1/4 cup water

To garnish


toasted pumpkin seeds (or whatever seeds you can find in your cupboard)


1. Begin by melting 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it in 30-second intervals until fully melted, which should take about 1 minute in total.

2. In a blender, combine the tomatoes, pumpkin purée, sugar, herbs, spices and melted butter. Blend until you achieve a smooth and consistent sauce.

3. Transfer the sauce from the blender into a medium-sized saucepan and heat it over medium heat. Allow it to warm through and let the flavours meld together, which should take around 5 to 10 minutes. The sauce will thicken further, but add up to 1/4 cup of water if you would prefer a slightly looser sauce. Add 1/4 cup of heavy cream to the sauce and stir it in to create a creamy texture.

4. Pan fry your healthy cauliflower gnocchi with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook for 5 minutes until crispy and golden brown.

5. Enjoy your homemade pumpkin pasta, a delicious and comforting dish that's perfect for autumn!
