What are dreams made of? These gnocchi. White miso and pepper come together to make a 'cacio e pepe'-like sauce, and toasted breadcrumbs give every cheesy bite crunch and texture.
1/2 tbsp white miso
2 tbsp vegan butter
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup water
4 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Start by toasting the breadcrumbs. Toss them into a pan with 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Heat until golden brown and then set aside.
In a bowl, combine your white miso and butter. Toss the mixture into a pot along with 1/2 tsp black pepper and mix. Whisk in the cup of water and bring it to a simmer. Add your gnocchi to the pot and stir to combine.
Cook for 2-3 minutes (or according to your gnocchi's cooking instructions), until most of the liquid has been absorbed and you have a creamy sauce.
Serve topped with your breadcrumbs and chopped fresh parsley.
