  1. Cook the gnocchi according to the package instructions until they float to the surface, then drain and set aside.

  2. In a saucepan, melt the vegan butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant.

  3. Lower the heat and pour in the vegan cream, stirring continuously. Add the grated vegan Parmesan cheese and whisk until the sauce is smooth and the cheese has melted.

  4. Season the sauce with salt, pepper, and nutmeg, adjusting to your preference.

  5. Add the drained gnocchi to the sauce and gently toss to coat each piece evenly.

  6. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes on low heat until the gnocchi are heated through and the sauce thickens slightly.

  7. Serve hot, sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley for a refreshing contrast.

  • If you prefer a thinner sauce, adjust the consistency with a little pasta water or additional vegan cream.
