Ninety Second Gnocchi

Ninety Second Gnocchi

You can probably relate to this story. You have a great meal planned for dinner. You’ve gotten the groceries. You’ve carved out the exact time in your day that you need to begin cooking. Then your day gets shot to friggin hell. You’ve spent too much time discussing the importance of the potty over pullups, frittered away an extra hour trying to get stupid errands done and then found yourself in traffic. Not only do you not have time to make the pea and mint soup (that’s what you should be reading about right now), you barely have time for toast. And, frankly, toast feels hard. So this is what happens instead.

Ninety Second Gnocchi

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 chopped white onion
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3/4 bunch of fresh kale
  • 2 cups fresh, frozen gnocchi
  • 1/4 fresh, shaved parmesan cheese

Method

In a large frying pan, add chopped onion and garlic.

Saute over medium/low heat until onion is translucent.

Add the clean kale (wash well in cold water) into the pan and coat with the oil mixture.

Cover and allow to wilt for 8-10 minutes, until soft and tender.

Add to food processor and mix until super fine

Add fresh, frozen gnocchi to water with a rolling boil. Cook for 2 minutes.

Drain and add to frying pan with a splash of olive oil that's warmed over low heat.

Stir in two and a half tablespoons of the pesto.

Sprinkle with fresh parmesan cheese.

Let the pesto and cheese coat the gnocchi and serve.

    I must NOT read such things at 6:57 am. Beats the pants off my planned fruity/protein smoothie.
