RECIPE | Parmesan-Lemon Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi

I know, I know. I’m WAYYYYY late to the cauliflower gnocchi party, but I finally jumped on the bandwagon the other day and holy cow. Why did I wait this long?!?

I see recipes all the time on Instagram for cauliflower gnocchi and they always look delicious. However, I was inspired by @kalejunkie and how she pan fried the gnocchi to get it cooked to perfection. Then you add in the fresh flavors of lemon, garlic and spinach to really bring it home. I swear, you’ll taste this and wonder to yourself, “is this stuff made with crack. Why am I addicted?”

You will understand when you make this why I only managed to get one photo of how this turned out. Once it is done cooking, you will want to eat it IMMEDIATELY. I’ll work on more photos to include soon, but I wanted to get this amazingly delicious and super simple recipe up in a permanent spot here on the blog.

Here’s what you will need to make this recipe:

Yields2 Servings

I N G R E D I E N T S //
 3 tbsp avocado oil, split between the first & second 5-min fry times
 1 bag Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi
 ½ tsp salt
 ¼ tsp lemon pepper (optional)
 1 tbsp minced garlic
 ½ a lemon, juiced
 1.50 cups fresh spinach
 ¼ cup fresh grated parmesan

D I R E C T I O N S //
1

First, set out the bag of gnocchi on the counter for about 5 minutes. Pick it up and drop it to try and break up the gnocchi. (like you would do to a bag of ice). That way they are not in clumps.

2

Over medium heat, add 1.5 Tbls. of your avocado oil to your non-stick skillet (do it in a non-stick skillet or these delicate little clouds of cauliflower will stick like crazy)
Next Add in the entire bag of Trader Joe's cauliflower gnocchi. Give them a little stir and allow them to sit there for a solid 5 minutes to crisp up one side. Then you can add in another 1.5 Tbls. of your avocado oil and give them a little stir, try to flip some on the other side if you can, but don't worry if you can't get them all to perfectly flip. Then allow them to sit for another 5-6 minutes.
OPTIONAL: add in a little more avocado oil and flip the gnocchi a third time and allow to sit for another 3-4 minutes to crisp up even more!

3

Next, add in the minced garlic, lemon juice and fresh spinach. Stir all this together until the spinach starts to wilt. Then you can season with a little salt and lemon pepper. Top with the freshly grated Parmesan cheese and ENJOY!
