Meatless Friday: Cauliflower Gnocchi with Spinach and Garlic


meatless friday redesign

I love when people share recipes with me — and it’s a bonus when that happens with the next generation of family members. My son in Colorado frequently texts pictures of his culinary creations, along with recipes, and one of my nieces has begun doing the same. Last week, my niece Jessie texted me a photo of a gnocchi dish she’d created, and when she told me she’d invented the recipe, I replied, “That’s where the best recipes come from!”

With her permission, I’m sharing it here.
