Walk through any farmers market and the bounty of summer will be on display in mounds of freshly picked carrots, beets, lettuce, broccoli, cucumbers, peppers, onions, parsley, zucchini, corn, celery, green beans, tomatoes and spinach.
It's hot outside, so who wants to cook? You've grilled all summer long and while you love grilled vegetables, you need to take a break.
My suggestion is simple, make gnocchi.
If you've never made gnocchi, you're probably saying it's too difficult to make. Only Italian chefs can do that. The truth is, gnocchi are easy to prepare. And it doesn't take much time in the kitchen.
For Zesterdaily I wrote an easy-to-make recipe that lays out all the steps to making gnocchi at home.
Inspired by California-Mediterranean cuisines and farmers markets, I cook healthy, flavorful dishes that are easy-to-prepare yet elegant. I write for Zester Daily, One for the Table, Luxury Travel Magazine, Huffington Post & New York Daily News. My latest Amazon eCookbook is 10 Delicious Holiday Recipes.
