My Staple Cauliflower Gnocchi Recipe

There are a LOT of questions when it comes to properly cooking Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi! I was very intrigued - I love cauliflower rice, pizza, and have even had it in my smoothie, so I knew I had to try it! I originally wasn't sure if this gluten free savior would live up to the hype I saw all over social media... but now I am hooked. I was advised by multiple friends to *not* follow the directions on the bag, otherwise the gnocchi will become soggy, so now I love to bake or roast it! This is my quick and easy staple recipe for cauliflower gnocchi that is vegan and gluten free. I use cauliflower gnocchi, organic garden vegetable pasta sauce, spinach, nutritional yeast, and spices to get the perfect flavors and textures! Depending on your diet, feel free to add cheese instead of nutritional yeast or a protein into the mix.
