Making Homemade Vegan Gnocchi can be intimidating, but this vegan recipe is easy to make. But gnocchi contains eggs, which are not vegan. Luckily this homemade vegan gnocchi is dairy-free. This vegan recipe uses 6 simple ingredients: potatoes, flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and pesto. All you have to do is to cook the potatoes, mix them with flour, and knead until a dough forms. Next comes the fun, relaxing part of making gnocchi rolling and cutting the dough into little pillows of heaven. Finally, all that's left is using a fork to make the most beautiful indentations and cook them. Toss the homemade vegan gnocchi with pesto or your favorite pasta sauce, and you've got a delicious hot dinner!

Boil the russet potatoes in a large pot of water for 20-25 minutes until they are fork-tender. 
Drain potatoes and set them aside for 10 minutes until they are cool enough to handle.   
Place the cooked russet potatoes into a large bowl and add the flour, sea salt, white pepper, and onion powder.   
Knead the potato mixture until a dough forms.   
Divide the dough into 4-6 portions. Roll each portion of dough into a long rope.
Cut the rope into 1-inch pieces and repeat until all the dough is gone.
Place a fork onto your work surface. Roll each gnocchi onto the base of the fork to create an impression.   
Cook the gnocchi in a large pot of salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes until they float to the top. 
Drain the gnocchi in a fine mesh strainer and place them into a bowl. 
Add the pesto and toss to combine.
