How to Cook Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi by Completely Ignoring the Instructions on the Package — Worthy Pause



I’d like to talk about the frozen Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi for a sec. Yes, THE cauliflower gnocchi.

I slept on this product for far too long… and I don’t mean as a pillow (because it is gnocchi after all).

I tried it when it first came out (prepared as directed) and it was terrible. And then I started seeing it pop up all over and it looked way better and I revisited the gnocchi in the freezer section. Turns out everyone is obsessed with it for a reason.

The obsession starts with the fact that they are a very clean packaged food. They are made of cauliflower with cassava flour, potato starch, olive oil and sea salt. So simple—and that means they comply with basically any dietary restriction you might have. They are egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, whole30, vegan, etc. Beyond that though, they taste great and provide a blank canvas for a lot of different dishes.
