Ingredients

  • 1 package Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi 
  • 2 cups Organic Girl baby kale
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (you can sub for another oil, but the flavor from olive oil is so GOOD!)
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • sea salt to taste
  • Optional: red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium pan over medium heat, add all 3 tb of the olive oil (more if you need to) move the pan around so the oil is evenly coated. 
  • Add the entire package of gnocchi, and don’t touch it. 
  • Let it cook for about 5-7 minutes, before flipping to the other side, for another 5-7 minutes. The gnocchi should be getting nice and brown. If they are sticking to the pan, just add a little more oil to the pan, it’s okay!
  • Once they are cooked, push the gnocchi to one side of the pan and add the baby kale, crushed garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to the pan.
  • Sauté for about 1-2 minutes, until kale is wilted, then mix everything together. 
  • Remove the pan from the heat and plate your meal. 
  • Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese, if using! ENJOY!!!
