Whole Wheat Pumpkin Gnocchis!!


Hello and good evening to all! Hope everyone had a good day! I was quite productive! I finished my tech report, YAY! (just have to turn it in in the morning) and I worked out, made dinner, and wrapped all my christmas presents! Phew!

Food for the Day:

Lunch today was leftovers (I’m trying not to buy too much new stuff before break)

Green Chilie Quesadilla & Sweet Potato, Broccoli Sauteed in Amy's Soup

Snacks: I tried the Joy Tazo Tea from Starbucks, and I was not impressed, it didn’t have the bold spice taste I would have liked.

I also had a Van’s waffled covered in raw cinnamon honey

*Sorry for the lack of snack pictures

Dinner was faboush!

Cooking Ingredients:

1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/4 cup organic pumpkin puree

1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

salt

1 tbsp butter (I used this bonnie blue stuff that barely has any calories)

cheese (I used vegan mozzarella)

THAT’S IT!

Cooking Instructions:

1) Mix wheat, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice together with your hands

Ball of Dough

2) Take about a 1/5 of the dough out at a time and roll into a log

3) Slice into about 1/2 inch pieces

4) Boil big pot of water, add salt liberally (I have one of those salt grinder things and I grinded about 3-4 times)

5) Drop gnocchi’s in the boiling water, about 15 at a time

6) Scoop out with slotted spoon when they float to the top

7) When all gnocchi’s are done add the butter and mix, letting it melt all over the gnocchi’s

They looked like chicken!

8) Add cheese to the top of the gnocchi’s (I used vegan mozzarella on mine and 3 cheese italian on Joey’s)
