Picture perfect super easy Pumpkin Gnocchi!

First off, my roommate just handed me a bowl of the hands-down best butternut squash soup I’ve ever had, so I’m very happy.  Also, I discovered a recipe for whole wheat pumpkin gnocchi.  It has 2 ingredients, plus some spices if you’d like to add them.

Here’s the “instructions”:

Put 1 1/2 c pumpkin puree and 1 1/4 c whole wheat flour in a bowl with pumpkin pie spices if you want.  Mix them thoroughly.

Roll the dough into snakes on a heavily floured counter.

It’s like Pre-K!

Cut the gnocchi into bite- size pieces.  If you like the shape of traditional gnocchi, roll each piece on the back of a fork.

Baby pillows!

Throw them in salted boiling water until they float to the top.  Take them out, dust with cheese or herbs, and enjoy!


Serving suggestions:

For over the top vegetable intake, serve with ratatouille.

Or for something more decadent (but still healthy!), serve it with spinach sauce!

Lots of kid-friendly hidden veggies in this dinner!
