Cauliflower Gnocchi with Organic Heirloom Tomatoes 

A lot of you have been asking me for recipes on my Instagram and I figured why not just make a post that I can add recipes to as I post them on Instagram…easy enough, right? ;) I’ll update this randomly, but at least it’s here!

So without further adieu…

Cauliflower Gnocchi w/ Local Heirloom Tomatoes 

Prep Time: 5 minutes • Cook Time: 15 minutes • Yield: 2 

Cuisine: Gluten-free/vegetarian

 The prep/cook time is all a rough guestimate. Just depends on how quick you do it and if you’re making your own gnocchi etc. ;)

Ingredients

for the gnocchi

  • Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi (comes frozen – or you can make your own gluten-free or homemade gnocchi) (100% gluten-free)

 

for the heirloom tomato sauce

    • 1-quart small Heirloom Tomatoes, halved
    • 1-quart of small Trinidad Perfume Peppers (bought at our local farmers market), roughly chopped
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil / grass-fed butter/ grass-fed ghee (we love the Fourth & Heart brand) / vegan butter
    • 1/2 cup Vegan Parmesan Cheese Shreds
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil, or other herbs to taste

 

Instructions

    1. For the assembly: Fill a pot with water and season with salt; the water should taste like seasoned broth, not salty like the sea. Bring the water to a boil.

 

    1. Add the gnocchi to the boiling water. When they rise to the surface, cook for 1 to 2 more minutes. (Instructions are on the back of the package for the frozen cauli gnocchi.)

 

    1. While gnocchi are cooking, drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes and peppers in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

 

    1. In a pan over medium heat, drizzle olive oil/vegan butter to coat the pan, add in seasoned tomatoes and peppers. Cover with lid and let the tomatoes and peppers macerate.

 

    1. After a couple of minutes add 2 tablespoons of the pasta water to the saute pan. Let it simmer/thicken on low.

 

    1. Drain the gnocchi from the pot and add to the saute pan. Toss the gnocchi in the pan to emulsify the butter and finish with some vegan parmesan (it will melt and create the most beautiful creaminess!).

 

  1. Plate the gnocchi and finish with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.

 

OPTIONAL: If you have fresh basil (I didn’t have any on hand in the photo) you can cut it up a bit and add it to the pasta when served as garnish / plus it adds amazing colour and fresh flavour!

NOTE: This is a really flexible recipe so go crazy with it to make it to your own liking! It’s delicious either way!

*gifted product by the company (post is not sponsored).

Instructions

broth

  1. In bigger pot, sear the bacon
  2. Once bacon is almost done searing, add a splash of sesame oil/extra virgin olive oil (either or, or both depending on preference).
  3. Throw onion, garlic and ginger into bigger pot
  4. Add 3 tablespoons (less/more, to taste) Coconut Aminos
  5. Salt/pepper to taste
  6. Pour full amount of Osso Good’s Chicken Bone Broth and Organic Chicken Stock into pot and let it come to a low simmer.
  7. Check on broth, add more salt/pepper to taste and add a tablespoon or so of sriracha

soft boiled egg

  • In smaller pot, bring water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, gently add in your egg and let cook for ~6 minutes (depending on how runny/non-runny you want it).
  • Stick egg in cold water once done to stop from cooking more.
  • Peel egg(s) and cut in half (or keep it whole, up to you)

ramen

  • Bring fresh water to a boil in smaller pot
  • Once boiling, add rice noodles.
  • While waiting, cut up nori into thin strips.
  • Add rice noodles to the boiled water. Make sure to slightly undercook the noodles, because as soon as they go into the hot chicken broth, they’ll continue to cook.

Scoop out the broth, add the ramen and then top it all off with bacon, egg and the sliced seaweed (full one if you want too for added drama)! ENOY! :)
