I got an oyster mushroom growing kit as a gift (thanks mom!) and it was quite exciting to wake up each morning to see how much it had grown. It even attracted a little spider-friend to live in the village of gill-caps, so cute!

Four days later, they were ready to be harvested. So I took some gnocchi I had on hand and made a quick and easy dish full of umami and very satisfying.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 medium red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 300 g oyster mushrooms (shredded)
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup vegan cream (e.g. soy or cashew)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 package gnocchi


  • Over medium heat in a large skillet, heat the olive oil and add the onion, mushrooms and thyme, and saute until soft.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring salted water to the boil. Once it’s boiling add the gnocchi (according to package instructions).
  • Add the vegetable stock and vegan cream to the mushroom mix, and stir.
  • As soon as the gnocchi floats to surface of the water, drain it and at it to the mushrooms.
  • Stir to coat, and cook for a couple more minutes before serving.
