Dorm-et Food: Vegan Sweet Potato Gnocchi in Black Bean Sauce

Hi! My name is Jennifer Higa and I am a freshman blogger for Penn Appetit. One of the things I miss most about home is having a kitchen to cook good food and experiment with recipes. Fortunately, I do have a mini fridge and microwave crammed in my tiny room in the Quad, and I have started creating recipes that are easy to make with few tools and cheap ingredients (… or “free” ingredients I take from the dining halls). I hope you enjoy this easy healthy vegan sweet potato gnocchi recipe and video!

1 sweet potato
4 tbsp. all purpose ancient grains flour (GF, but can use regular flour)
1 tbsp. ground flax seeds
1 packet yellow mustard
1 tbsp. spicy sauce
Pinch of cinnamon
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the sauce, blend:
Canned black beans
Almond milk
Chili powder
Squeeze of lemon

A cashew alfredo, sage and butter, or tomato sauce would be lovely with this as well! Just use what you have on hand and create 🙂
