By now I am sure you have heard of Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi and let me tell you it doest disappoint! It’s ready in just about 15 minutes so it’s the perfect dinner anytime you are low on time.
We’ve had the cauliflower gnocchi with a few sauces at this point, but today’s recipe is really delicious and different. I have been starting to make cashew sauces but go the idea to add miso from the Love & Lemon’s Cookbook (I highly recommend it).
I have read some mixed reviews about the cauliflower gnocchi, the negative ones mentioning the gummy texture. While I will agree that it has a bit of a gummy texture, some pieces more than other, food textures often don’t bother me. Second, this dish has plenty of sauce which add lots of flavor and detracts from the gumminess.
