Trader Joes Cauliflower Gnocchi & Chicken Sausage

 

Say hello to the best Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi Recipe…

Need a little inspiration for those weeknights when you’re short on time, but still want a satisfying and healthy meal? 

I’ve got ya covered with this delicious meal of cauliflower gnocchi, fresh veggies, and chicken sausage. Carbs, protein, fiber, and healthy fats to keep you satisfied and nourished.

My body was craving protein and potatoes this week randomly, so I listened! I’m not a huge meat eater personally, but once in a while I do eat some chicken, and these chicken sausage were SO freaking good! These were made with spinach and feta, and they were so simple to heat up and throw in with my Trader Joe’s Cauliflower gnocchi (made with potato starch, cauliflower, and cassava flour – yes they are as good as everyone makes them out to be!) and veggies.

Speedy Weeknight Meal – Cauliflower Gnocchi & Chicken Sausage


  • Author: Caroline

Description

The speediest and most satisfying meal when you don’t feel like cooking! Healthy AND delicious. A total crowd pleaser!


Scale

Ingredients

1 package Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi

1 package organic chicken sausage of choice (I used one blended with feta and spinach – delicious!)

1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes

1 large bunch kale

sea salt, to taste

black pepper, to taste

garlic powder, to taste

Cashew ‘parmesan’, optional (I always use the recipe from Minimalist Baker)

olive oil or grass-fed butter, for cooking


Instructions

 In a saute pan, add your butter or olive oil and heat to medium-high heat. Add the package of frozen cauliflower gnocchi and let cook for ~5 minutes before touching or turning. Flip over and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.

Top gnocchi with desired parmesan, salt, and pepper.

In another pan, add olive oil and heat sliced chicken sausage until warm and starting to brown on either side. Once almost ready, add in chopped cherry tomatoes and chopped kale and sautéuntil soft. Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Once all items are cooked, add to a large bowl and enjoy immediately!


Want to know the secret for making the gnocchi best? COOK THEM FROZEN. Do not let them thaw before cooking. Add butter or olive oil to a large sauté pan and add the frozen gnocchi. Let sit (do not touch!!) for about 5 minutes before flipping over. Let them cook for a few minutes on each side without touching, and let them start to brown.

My fiancé was also obsessed with this meal – the easiest way to sneak in those veggies! How do you like to add in more veggies during your day? Aim to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables, it’s the simplest way to ensure you’re getting enough nutrients and fiber!
