How does gnocchi with spinach and Mediterranean fresh tomato sauce sound? Sounds amazing, right!
I have been a whirlwind adventure around the globe this week in testing new and exciting recipes. Well, as much as I wish I had actually been around the world, I really haven’t had a chance to leave my kitchen. But I have been lucky enough to create some amazing dishes inspired by different parts of the world! While imagining lounging in beautiful sand filled beaches, or walking the streets filled with the aromas of food being cooked from restaurants lining sidewalks, I am taken to new and foreign lands. I then hone in on this experience and try to replicate that in my cooking.
Keen to join me on my world trip? Let’s start with the wonderful Mediterranean cuisine.
To make this recipe, you will need 12 ingredients and 180 minutes. As you may have noticed, this recipe is a lot longer than any other recipe I have brought you. However, many of the ingredients need time to turn out just right. The end result will be well worth the effort, trust me!
Among the many impressive ingredients we use in this dish, a few stand out from the rest. We start this recipe off with potatoes, chia seeds, and spinach. From these, we are offered a good source of carbohydrates, protein, omega-3, fiber, antioxidants, vitamin K, vitamin A, folate, and magnesium (just to name a few). And of course, we can’t have fresh tomato sauce with the tomatoes! Tomatoes are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, and copper.
Gnocchi with spinach and Mediterranean fresh tomato sauce is the perfect meal for lunch or dinner because it’s:
To store any left overs, simply place it in an airtight container and pop it in the fridge for up to 48 hours. This dish is certainly one that is best enjoyed fresh. I would recommend storing your gnocchi in a ‘non-fried’ state and then cooking it when you want to eat it. However you can enjoy it if it’s fried, just remember to heat it well before consuming.
And there we have it my friends. The first of many worldly inspired dishes. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Happy cooking.
