  • Large skillet


  • 4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 (1-lb.) pkg. potato gnocchi (such as DeLallo brand) (sub 1 1/2 bags Trader Joe's frozen cauliflower gnocchi)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup julienne-sliced sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained
  • 3 packed cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 (12-oz.) jar marinated artichoke quarters, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (sub cashew cream - see notes)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves


  • Heat 2 Tbsp. of the olive oil in a large skillet (preferably non-stick) over medium heat. Once hot, add gnocchi and use a wooden spoon to break apart any that are stuck together. Cook, undisturbed, for 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Stir, and continue cooking, stirring only occasionally, to allow the gnocchi to lightly brown on all sides, for another 6 minutes. Once the gnocchi is browned and tender, transfer to a bowl.
  • To the same skillet over medium heat, add remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil, along with shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook 3 minutes, until aromatic.
    Stir in Dijon mustard and sun-dried tomatoes. Next, add spinach, and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in artichokes, heavy cream, salt, and pepper; cook 2 minutes.
    Add cooked gnocchi back to skillet; toss to coat. Stir in fresh thyme, and cook 1 more minute. Divide into 4 bowls.


If using homemade cashew cream in place of heavy cream, pour 2/3 cup boiling water over 1/3 cup raw cashews. Let sit for 30 minutes. When ready to stir in the cream, transfer mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour cashew cream into skillet and stir to combine.
To Store: Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
To Reheat: Rewarm gently in the microwave or on the stovetop with a splash of vegetable broth or water to help rehydrate the sauce.
