Quick vegan dinner cooking hack

If you are like me (a lazy and sometimes last minute meal planner, because I’m spite of your good intentions somehow the day just got away from you) then I’m here to share my life altering quick dinner hack with you.

It’s not really so much a hack as it’s a rainy day preparation. So here’s my best advice; always keep a pack of gnocchi in your freezer. You won’t believe how many times this simple trick comes in handy…or how many dinners it can save. 

You can make your own gnocchi and freeze them for a later day…or you can buy gnocchi at the grocery store for a even easier cooking hack and freeze them for later. Either way, keeping a batch of gnocchi in the freezer at all times is a true lifesaving dinner backup plan. You won’t regret it 🙂

Even quicker cooking hack

If you are in a serious time crunch and need to get dinner on the table with as little hassle as possible, you can replace the veggies with your favorite bag of frozen veggie mix from the grocery store. Any type of frozen veggies should work well for this recipe, but here are some of my favorites to look for in a frozen veggie mix bag:

  • Bell peppers
  • Tomatoes 
  • Broccoli 
  • Cauliflower 
  • Chickpeas 
  • Red onions
  • Leeks

…and any type of fajita mix veggie bags always seem to do well 

Gluten-free gnocchi option 

Traditional gnocchi aren’t gluten-free, but you can easily make your gnocchi gluten-free if you are making them from scratch. Just replace the semolina flour with brown rice flour and you are good to go. Another option is to buy gluten-free ready made gnocchi at the grocery store. Most well stocked grocery stores should have vegan gluten-free gnocchi on the shelves.
