This Trader Joe’s Kale Gnocchi is a delicious take on standard gnocchi, with a pillowy texture and a taste of subtle kale and potatoes. If you sear this in a pan with olive oil, you’ll get a crispy outside and a soft, pillow like center. These may be even better than the Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi as a go to pasta gnocchi substitute. TJs says these tasty little green pillows are made with a recipe that uses over 50% kale. You can also boil these and they still taste really good, but they obviously won’t have the crunch. I did try and microwave these and they basically come out as mush. The taste is still there, but I think you should saute them unless you have no other option…..…….

Kale Gnocchi at Trader Joe’s
There are so many gnocchi options now at Trader Joe’s that it can be hard to decide which one to go with it. I think cauliflower gnocchi and this kale gnocchi are both good options in the frozen section, but it has to be so frustrating if you don’t eat pasta to pass over all the incredible frozen pastas TJs now has. In any case, these are a healthy gnocchi alternative, and they absorb sauces and flavors really well. Does anyone have a delicious recipe they use these little balls of pillowy kale in? I haven’t tried it, but the Trader Joe’s website has a delicious sounding Pesto Kale Gnocchi recipe. If anyone has tried it, let me know! I feel like a really rich and savory homemade sauce would hit the spot if you tossed kale gnocchi in it and served it as a vegan entree…..
