Spring Vegetable Gnocchi with Golden Wholemeal Gnocchi

How good is Gnocchi? Soft, light…such a DELIGHT! There isn’t much better than a bowl of gnocchi dredged in your favourite sauce! Though I think we all know that the starchy white potatoes and refined white flour used to make most gnocchi is not the healthiest option for you and having the capacity (talent) to make your own can be quite a big task and in most instances lead to disappointment! Though DO NOT FEAR my friends! I have found a SOLUTION (well rather Coles has) and it is called Golden Wholemeal Gnocchi. When you read that did anyone else here the ark angels singing in the background? TRIED AND TESTED this is a FANTASTIC substitute to white store bought gnocchi, is so simple to cook and is high fibre and low GI – WOO! Obviously it is not as fantastic as homemade gnocchi but beggars can’t be choosers and this is a great product! So go on and revel in the beauty of what is Wholemeal gnocchi!
