‘Nother Gnocci #vegan

We finally finished that package of gnocci I bought last week. I love the stuff, but Charlie isn’t madly keen about it, and, after all, enough is enough, am I right?

ANYWAY, this was also good.

NotherGnocciWhile I boiled the gnocci, I heated some Meatless Griller Strips (fake chicken made out of seitan, and very, very delicious) and toasted some slivered almonds. I opened a can of green beans, drained them, and tossed them with flour seasoned with Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt and threw them in the skillet with a little olive oil. Then I drained the cooked gnocci and added them to the skillet and browned them a little.

That’s the gnice thing about gnocci: you can always come up with something gnew to do with them.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character is stuck with massive amounts of one ingredient and has to maintain interest in it.

    This looks pretty good. I might have made the meatless strips from chicken, but your heart was in the right place. Cute wordplay 🙂

      lol! The last time I had chicken, it felt rubbery between my teeth. I need to eat more chicken, before I lose my taste for it. Lent will be here before you know it, and I need something it’s a sacrifice to do without. What’s that you say? Chocolate? Be serious!

    I could just write about that time my mother’s zucchini plants mated and tried to take over the world. 😉

    That time Arnold Palmer (yes, the golfer) saved the day and rescued earth from the alien zucchini babies. I should do that. True story, too. Thank you, Arnold Palmer.

    You didn’t know Arnold Palmer saved the world from the evil zucchini, did you?

      I did NOT know that, but I’m not surprised to hear it of him. That’s a story that needs to be told!

    @Marian Allen – I wrote about Lent last year. I ty to add stuff, not give up. I work toward the goal of not having people do things for me. It’s harder than it sounds.

      I like the notion of adding stuff. I usually give up the same thing every year: moderation.

      I can do just about anything as vegan or vegetarian, Alex. Vegetables and flour are very versatile. 😀

    I don’t eat gnearly egnough gnocci. (What? You started it.) Like Dan, I would have used real chicken, by which of course I mean my wife would have used real chicken, since she’s the one who loves to cook. I, on the other hand, love to eat. Especially when it’s gnocci. And especially especially when it’s homemade gnocci. Time to drop my wife some not-so-subtle hints.

      Homemade is MUCH better than store-bought. Unlock the door; I’ll be right over.

    This looks delicious. I don’t eat gnocchi enough and need to add it to the rotation.

      It’s a good one to rotate, since it goes with so many things. It’s good just buttered with cheese sprinkled on!
