This isn’t a recipe so much as an idea. An idea that you should go out and try immediately.
I was a crazy, out-of-control rebel this week.
My package of potato gnocchi told me to boil them for 2-3 minutes, and instead of heating up the water I looked that package in the eye and just said no. (D.A.R.E. works for more than drugs!)
Hey, when you don’t have anyone to talk to you have to find something to talk to, right?
I tossed the gnocchi in a pan with a bit of non-dairy butter and heated until they were golden and crispy. Far superior to the boiling method! Crunchy on the outside, soft and potato-y on the inside.
Look at that little dude! He’s so cute and toasted.
I have to admit that I’ve only ever bought pesto in a jar, which is OK, but I find that it’s often too heavy. Yesterday I took a chance and bought fresh vegetarian pesto in the refrigerated section. Holy smokes, Batman!
I’m never buying the stuff in a jar again. Fresh is the way forward.
I justify the extra cost by telling myself that I’m still saving tons of money by not eating out. The fresh stuff cost me only £2 and lasted for two meals, so I don’t think that’s bad in the slightest.
The best part? This fresh, real food, filling, hit-the-spot meal took me literally five minutes.
