Vegetable Gnocchi with Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes
Vegetable Gnocchi with Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes is the perfect balance of healthy and indulgent. This recipe is packed with a bunch of hearty vegetables. To be honest, I have been trying to avoid going to the grocery store (hello snowstorm) and we are running low on groceries. We looked at what we had in the fridge and cupboards and came up with this super delicious dish.
Gluten Free Vegan Gnocchi
We always try to have gnocchi on hand. It is one of my go-tos when I don’t know what to eat and it is so quick to cook. I’m not going to lie, I absolutely love it with just some vegan butter and some parmesan on it. A little bit of a guilty pleasure but hey, we all have them
The gnocchi that we use is Le Veneziane Potato Gnocchi. It is gluten free and vegan, so just omit the parmesan cheese on top and you have a vegan dish. Otherwise, this meal is already vegetarian. The gnocchi comes in two trays so if you are only one person you don’t have to open a big package and waste any of it. This is also very convenient when cooking it as a smaller side portion.
We buy the gnocchi at FreshCo and it is in the gluten free section. I am sure other grocery stores sell it but I have’t been able to find it anywhere else. You can also always order it online. You can’t tell that it is gluten free or vegan. If you don’t tell a gluten eater, they won’t have any idea. The gnocchi floats to the top when it is done being boiled and are nice and fluffy when you bite into them, similar to gluten containing gnocchi.
Add in the Veggies!
We have been making it our mission this year to eat more vegetables. Any meal that we can add any vegetable into, we have. So as much as I have mentioned that I love to eat gnocchi with butter and cheese, we tried hard to add lots of vegetables in this recipe.
Matt and I (Karlee) literally used any vegetables that we had in the fridge that needed to be used up in this vegetable gnocchi. We love doing this and getting creative. Eating more veggies makes you feel great and knowing that you don’t have food going to waste because you found a use for them before they went bad, makes you feel even better.
So for this recipe we used, asparagus, we bought too much for a family dinner last week. Baby carrots, these are always great to have on hand. Cherry tomatoes, again love having these on hand and put them in everything. 1/2 a red onion leftover from a recipe we made last week. Lastly, spinach which I accidentally bought last week thinking we were making a recipe that needed it. When I got home I realized I made a mistake. So it was our goal to use it up any way we could, which included omelettes, salads, smoothies, pastas and now gnocchi.
