This 20 minute vegan gnocchi with creamy white cabbage sauce recipe is a lifesaver on a busy day. It’s a quick, delicious and ideal for those crazy busy days where you don’t have time but still want to make a healthy vegan dinner. 

Of course, you are going to need to use ready to cook gnocchis for this recipe…but you can either buy them at the grocery store or use made in advance meal prep gnocchis.

I usually like to make a double batch of gnocchis and freeze half for a rainy day where I am running low on time…and usually this creamy cabbage recipe is my go-to for a quick and tasty dinner. 

Cabbage is one of those easy veggies that never get any credit. Cooked properly they become soft and silky, almost melt-in-your-mouth texture. And together with the creamy white coconut sauce, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic, this recipe is mouthwateringly good – and incredibly simple to make.
