  • 1 cup Dehydrated Potato Flakes
  • 1 cup Hot Water
  • 1 each Large Egg beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • As Needed Simmering Water for cooking the gnocchi
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ cup Button Mushrooms cut into quarters
  • ¼ cup Frozen or Fresh Sweet Corn
  • ½ cup Snow Peas
  • ½ cup Chopped Asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ cup Fresh Basil
  • As Needed Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice optional


  • Place potato flakes in a large bowl. Stir in boiling water; add egg and stir. Stir in flour, do not overwork the flour or the gnocchi will get tough. On a lightly floured surface, knead 10-12 times, forming a soft dough.
  • Divide dough into four portions. On a floured surface, roll each portion into 1/2-in.-thick ropes; cut into 3/4-in. pieces. Press and roll each piece with a lightly floured fork.
  • In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Cook gnocchi in batches for 30-60 seconds or until they float. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a baking sheet or a large plate to cool slightly while you sauté the vegetables.
  • In a large sauté pan heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and cook the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes stir occasionally until they are nice and golden. At this point add in the corn, snow peas and asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Sauté the vegetables for 2-3 minutes or until the asparagus and snow peas are tender and bright green. Add the chopped fresh basil.
  • Add the gnocchi and gently toss with the warm vegetables being careful not to break the delicate gnocchi.
  • Serve the gnocchi with some freshly squeezed lemon juice if desired.
